McAfee Web Gateway
Security. Control. Performance
Organizations can do more over the web today than ever before. Today’s web offers a dynamic, real-time user experience. However, the web has also become a more dangerous place, with increasingly sophisticated attacks released every day. The McAfee® Web Gateway appliance is the first line of defense for any organization to protect against evolving malware threats. It empowers organizations to enable employee access while greatly reducing an organization’s risk with an advanced security approach that combines powerful, local intent analysis with cloud-based protection powered by McAfee Labs.
Complete Inbound and Outbound Protection
McAfee Web Gateway delivers comprehensive security for all aspects of web traffic, regardless of location or device. For user-initiated web requests, McAfee Web Gateway first enforces an organization’s Internet use policy. For all allowed traffic, it then uses local and global techniques to analyze the nature and intent of all content and active code entering the network via the requested web pages, providing immediate protection against malware and other hidden threats. And, unlike basic packet inspection techniques, McAfee Web Gateway can examine SSL traffic to provide in-depth protection against malicious code or inappropriate applications that have been disguised through encryption. Inbound protection also mitigates risks for organizations hosting websites that accept data or document uploads from external sources. McAfee Web Gateway in reverse proxy mode scans all content before it is uploaded, securing both the server and the content.
