Best Secure Web Gateways

Secure web gateways are comprehensive web security platforms designed to prevent internet threats and ensure employee compliance. Secure web gateways filter websites, content, and downloads to identify malware signatures. The gateway creates a wall between web browsers and the endpoint device to identify malware, malicious code, and dangerous URLs and prevent users from engaging. Companies use these tools to enforce security policies across multiple remote endpoints. Secure web gateways give companies and businesses increased control and visibility across their businesses over the threats present and enforce established policies to prevent incidents.

These tools offer a similar solution to browser isolation software, but provide protection differently. While browser isolation provides a layer of abstraction from the user to the web, secure web gateways deliver a filtering system for policy enforcement and malware protection.

To qualify for inclusion in the Secure Web Gateway category, a product must:

  • Filter or scan web content for viruses, spam, or other malware
  • Identify and block potentially dangerous URLs or web traffic
  • Provide policy enforcement capabilities for compliant web browsing
