Secure Internet Gateway

Break free from traditional network security appliances and start protecting your clients from the most sophisticated cyberthreats with a powerful, cloud-based next-gen firewall.

Simplify your network security offerings

The old way of securing a network is becoming extinct and the threat landscape is expanding.

Costs are rising
Hub-and-spoke network appliances are a significant expense for service providers. Moving security to the cloud removes these maintenance costs.
Network perimeters are dissolving
Users are more remote than ever, connecting to public WiFi and IoT devices, exposing networks outside the limits of an on-premise solution.
Threats are rising
Encrypted traffic makes up nearly 90% of internet traffic – and legacy appliances don’t inspect it. As cyberthreats evolve, so should security.

Secure Internet Gateway solves your current network security challenges and more with:

Fast, full SSL/TLS inspection
Full content and URL filtering
Cloud sandboxing and firewall protection
Global firewall network with over 127 data centers
Mobile protection for Windows, MacOs, Android, and IoS
Virus database updated 125,000x per day
Contextual threat visibility
Active directory integration
SLA: 99.999% availability
100ms or less average latency

Main benefits of Secure Internet Gateway

Improved security posture with full SSL inspection
Failure to inspect encrypted data is a major security risk. Secure Internet Gateway provides deployment for full SSL decryption and inspection, eliminating performance degradation, as well as appliance and bandwidth bottlenecks. It also protects mobile workers, branch offices, and devices outside the office.
Cost reduction with a simple design
Secure Internet Gateway eliminates the need for expensive hardware security appliances, hardware maintenance schedules, complex management, and the associated costs of backhauling traffic to and from remote offices. With our completely cloud-based security solution, there’s no hardware to buy or manage.
Improved take rates
If you’re one of our MSP or MSSP partners, Secure Internet Gateway will increase customer take and retention rates through a managed service that seamlessly integrates with your other services. It eliminates up-front hardware costs, security experts, and long-term commitments prohibitive to clients.
