Hybrid Web Security

Designed to act as an umbrella for web security across head office, branch office and remote workers, HWS provides a single pane of glass to discover, analyze and control web activity across multiple networks and devices.

Uniquely, the HWS platform uses a proxy-less approach which significantly reduces latency, preserves the user's real IP address and maintains privacy by allowing the browser to maintain direct communication with the designated web server if the request is allowed. This results in a fast and unobtrusive experience which does not hinder productivity or cause frustration to end users.

In addition, the follow-the-user philosophy ensures web access control passes seamlessly from desktop to laptop to mobile and therefore provides a consistent browsing experience for the end user. More sophisticated than DNS-based solutions and involving considerably less overhead than pure proxy solutions, the HWS platform extends to networks, roaming users, standalone computers, tablet devices and BYOD - providing the IT department with complete visibility and control.

HWS incorporates a wide range of web access control functionality such as real-time anti-malware scanning, URL reputation analysis of billions of web pages, multi-platform endpoint software and a sophisticated policy and reporting engine.
