Secure Web gateway solutions protect Web-surfing PCs from infection and enforce company policies. A secure Web gateway is a solution that filters unwanted software/malware from user-initiated Web/Internet traffic and enforces corporate and regulatory policy compliance. These gateways must, at a minimum, include URL filtering, malicious-code detection and filtering, and application controls for popular Web-based applications, such as instant messaging (IM) and Skype. Native or integrated data leak prevention is also increasingly included.
Targeted web attacks can be initiated over multiple vectors and often combine different vectors in a coordinated attack. A multilevel approach that tracks the normal anatomy of a targeted attack is the optimal way to protect an organization – significantly reducing the amount of malware by preventing intrusion, ensuring the malware in the environment does not propagate, avoiding infection of sensitive assets and finally, stopping sensitive data from leaving the organization. Vinitech’s web security vendors offer solutions that provide a comprehensive, complete approach to targeted attacks and enforcement of Acceptable Use Policy.
