  • Cybercriminals treat the web as their preferred launching pad for data-stealing malware. Users can become infected through malicious links contained in emails or on social networks, through exploits masquerading as software updates or through simply navigating to a website that automatically installs malware.

    With Trustwave's award-winning and industry-leading Secure Web Gateway, organizations can detect malware on the fly without relying on signatures, gain zero-day protection against advanced threats and enable the safe and secure use of applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Gmail — all while minimizing confidential data loss and ensuring productivity and compliance.

    Advanced Malware Protection

    Legacy, signature-based perimeter technologies leave a large gap in malware defense. Trustwave Secure Web Gateway bridges that divide with real-time code analysis and dynamic URL categorization to evaluate the composition of an entire web page and determine the intent of that page and its script and software components. Secure Web Gateway strips out any malware and delivers the repaired page to users, so they can remain productive.

    Data Loss Prevention

    Trustwave Secure Web Gateway scans inbound and outbound communication and identifies data-stealing malware, including keystroke loggers, trojans and rootkits. Furthermore, it creates policy, enforces rules and prevents users from posting sensitive data to social media sites or sending it over webmail.

    Application/Social Media Control

    Studies show that roughly eight out of 10 businesses engage in social media. But with the benefits come risks. Trustwave Secure Web Gateway protects against malware proliferation, productivity loss, sensitive data exfiltration and brand damage by granularly controlling interaction that users have on social media sites, such as limiting their actions to read-only.

    Greater Control

    Trustwave Secure Web Gateway has a centralized policy manager with a comprehensive single interface. Administrators can set policies in the system and assign them to users, user groups or specific IPs. The changes in configuration are done on one location and are automatically distributed to the scanners. The distribution options and intervals can be easily configured, and the distribution process can be seamlessly monitored.

    Enhanced Reporting And Forensics

    Trustwave Secure Web Gateway includes seamless security reporting and forensic investigation capabilities that provides complete visibility into an organization's web traffic. It enables organizations to analyze web traffic trends for remediation, execute proactive notifications and review security analytics. It allows gathering blocked malware for further analysis, and provides the largest data processing range available today.

    Industry and Regulatory Compliance

    Customers require solutions that demonstrate proof of compliance for industry and regulatory compliance. Trustwave Secure Web Gateway comes with an easy-to-use interface to conduct improved audit logging, archiving and reporting.

    Deployment Options

    The scanning sever component of the Trustwave Secure Web Gateway is available on a number of platforms, including traditional appliances, virtual appliances, cloud-based virtual appliances and virtual appliance platform services. In addition, these platform options can be mixed in a hybrid deployment or deployed as a managed service.

    Integration Across Our Portfolio

    Trustwave Secure Web Gateway integrates with our other security technologies - including application security, content security and NAC - to leverage their value and provide a more effective solution for customers. Information from these products can feed into the Trustwave SIEM.
