Secure Web Gateway

Definition - What does Secure Web Gateway mean?

A secure Web gateway is a type of security solution that prevents unsecured traffic from entering an internal network of an organization. It is used by enterprises to protect their employees/users from accessing and being infected by malicious Web traffic, websites and virus/malware. It also ensures the implementation and compliance of the organization's regulatory policy.

Techopedia explains Secure Web Gateway

A secure Web gateway is primarily used to monitor and prevent malicious traffic and data from entering, or even leaving, an organization’s network. Typically, it is implemented to secure an organization against threats originating from the Internet, websites and other Web 2.0 products/services. It is generally implemented through a hardware/software gateway device/application implemented at the outer boundaries of a network. Some of the features a secure Web gateway provides include URL filtering, application level control, data leakage prevention and virus/malware code detection.
