Eliminate Your Encryption Blind Spot with Highly Secure HTTPS Inspection

Protect yourself from hidden threats with an “A” grade security gateway appliance

Get complete visibility into SSL/TLS encrypted web traffic with Symantec’s advanced web and cloud security solutions. Academic researchers and internet giants such as Google, Mozilla and others looked at Secure Web Gateways, Next-Generation Firewalls and Application Delivery Controllers to see who was practising secure interception of encrypted web traffic, without introducing new risk. Of all middleboxes in the study only the Symantec web proxy appliance enabled inspection while preserving high security.

  • Scan SSL-encrypted traffic for viruses, worms, and Trojans; and stop them at the gateway
  • Prevent spyware from installing or communicating over SSL/TLS
  • Stops rogue applications (e.g., IM and P2P) that use SSL to subvert enterprise controls and security measures
  • Accelerate approved and safe SSL-encrypted traffic
  • Send a stream of decrypted traffic to third party logging systems for analysis, archiving, and forensics

Prevent Malware and Phishing Threats While Allowing Broad Web Access by Isolating Potentially Risky Traffic

Protect your users from threats targeting web browsers

Symantec Web Isolation prevents websites from delivering zero-day malware, protecting users’ devices by executing web sessions away from endpoints, and safely sending rendering information to the browser. Integration with Symantec Secure Web Gateways such as ProxySG and Advanced Secure Gateway (ASG), enable policy-based traffic isolation for uncategorized sites, or URLs with suspicious or potentially unsafe risk profile.

  • Tight integration with Symantec Secure Web Gateways (ProxySG, ASG, and Web Security Service)
  • Patented approach that prevents any website code from executing on user’s devices
  • Responsive and interactive UI for transparent and seamless user experience
  • Selective risky traffic isolation or isolation all of the web browsing for privileged users such as C-level executives
  • Isolation of URLs embedded in Email to help phishing attack prevention
