Secure Web Gateway (SWG) Overview
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) adoption is on the rise, with at least 60% of internet sites using it as of January 2018. While this provides confidentiality, it’s also a great place for cybercriminals to hide malware. Industry reports indicate that 41% of malicious traffic leverages encryption. In addition, administrators lose visibility of data leaving the enterprise and can’t enforce data loss policies.
Fortinet firewalls with Gateway Security protects enterprises against web attacks with URL filtering, visibility and control of encrypted web traffic via SSL inspection, and application of granular web application policies. Fortinet is the first and only gateway security vendor to earn Virus Bulletin’s VBWeb certification for web filtering effectiveness.a
