It’s Time to Move On From Your Legacy Secure Web Gateway

Legacy web security has many blind spots


web traffic is related to apps and cloud services

Web security is moving to the cloud for performance and scale, plus integrating inline CASB app controls for thousands of apps with DLP to protect data.  There is no room for separate security silos in the cloud, or migrating the complexity of legacy on-premises web security solutions.

Your current web security gateway may have one or more of the issues below


Appliance limitations

Limited compute capacity for inspecting encrypted traffic, hosting advanced threat defenses, and storing logs and metadata. Appliances are also often last in line for updates after cloud services.


Bypassing threat defenses

Good reputation web and app traffic bypasses inline threat defenses, including sandboxing and script analysis.


Legacy allow/deny policy controls

Basic risk ratings with no visibility into thousands of apps for users, content, and activity for contextual policy controls.


Limited integration

Your current web security vendor has acquired a confusing array of security solutions with limited integration.


Unmanaged app visibility

The reality is less than 5% of apps and cloud services have IT administration rights, the rest are unmanaged in business units open to exposing data or introducing threats.
