Symantec Web Protection Suite gives organizations an advanced cloud-delivered Secure Web Gateway and leading on-premises Secure Web Gateway (SWG) deployment – both of which can operate seamlessly together with a unified management, reporting and policy control interface. It also includes Threat Intelligence, SSL Inspection, Content Analysis, Isolation, Sandboxing, WAF and more.
The Symantec Web Protection Suite is suitable for customers who are considering cloud SWG adoption, yet would like flexibility to begin this journey now, or any time in the future. The Suite also serves as an entry level SASE foundation enabling secure and fast access for any user, from any device, located anywhere protecting users, devices and data from known and unknown threats across all locations (Remote, branch, and HQ).
The cloud-native SWG facet of this solution differs from others in the market that are run from single purpose Data Centers and fail to protect against advanced threats.
The cloud SWG is deployed across a cloud-native, hyper-scaling and high performant infrastructure built on top of a leading CSP (Google). It is directly on the same backbone delivering YouTube, Google’s Ad Network and other world class services.
