Secure Web Gateway as a Service: Simplifying the Path to Network Security

Software as a service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS) are just a few of the now commonplace solutions that have been born through the cloud. Rather than forcing companies to expend resources on deploying and maintaining certain IT functions, “as-a-service” products can be leveraged as subscriptions and hosted off-premises in a provider’s data center or virtual environment.

The iboss Distributed Gateway Platform is the first and only Web Gateway as a Service that provides predictable pricing and can be tailored to the needs of almost any network configuration. Read this whitepaper to learn how your company can benefit from a Web Gateway as a Service.

Why Next-Generation Firewalls Aren’t an All-Encompassing Solution

As the cybersecurity threat landscape evolved over the past 20-plus years, the firewalls originally employed by IT the world over grew increasingly ineffective at blocking bad actors from accessing network data. Next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) aims to fill those gaps, but do they really provide an all-encompassing solution for network security? And how do they differ from secure web gateways (SWGs) in their ability to evaluate data entering and leaving the network?

Read this white paper to learn:

  • What are the characteristic features of NGFWs, and how far do they go in securing the network perimeter?
  • Both NGFWs and secure web gateways (SGWs) greet traffic entering and leaving the network – so what’s the difference?
  • Where do NGFWs feature in a layered cybersecurity strategy, and what additional defenses need to be put in place on either side of the network perimeter to assure the best defense?
