The SASE defense to stopping Internet threats.
Part of Versa SASE, Versa Secure Web Gateway (SWG) provides secure Internet access to enterprise sites, home offices, and on-the-go users without compromising performance or end-user experience.
Cloud Adoption and Mobility Are Driving Demand
Cloud adoption and mobility have significantly altered today’s application landscape. Data is no longer restricted to physical data centers centrally managed by an IT organization. Data is now distributed across various SaaS, public, and private cloud platforms making it difficult for organizations to get visibility and control.
In addition to the various locations where data is stored or in transit to and from, users have grown more mobile, accessing data and applications on-the-go on a multitude of devices. At the same time, workplace dynamics have also changed substantially with the impact of COVID-19 driving an unprecedented number of employees to work from home, and many organizations are now contemplating switching to mainstream WFH to cut down on operational costs.
An Expanded Perimeter Requires a New Approach
All these factors have led to a tremendous expansion of the network edge, in turn creating a large, distributed attack surface. With applications, data, users, and devices increasingly shifting off-premises, the conventional perimeter-based security model with hub-and-spoke architecture and legacy firewall has become obsolete.
Protecting on-premises, home office, and on-the-go users in today’s attack landscape requires a new class of firewall that is integral to the cloud. It requires a firewall that delivers comprehensive and effective security with the best user experience for enterprise and cloud applications for users connecting from anywhere.
Versa SWG protects users and their devices from threats from the Internet and enforcing corporate security policy: ensuring that every connection is secured.
