What is a Secure Web Gateway (SWG)

Enhancing Web Security with Secure Web Gateways: How Halo Global Streamlines Implementation, Integration, and Management for Comprehensive Protection

Secure Web Gateway (SWG)

A Secure Web Gateway (SWG) is a network security solution that filters and monitors web traffic to protect users and organizations from cyber threats, malware, and harmful content. It enforces security policies and controls access to websites and web applications based on predefined rules. The primary functions of an SWG include URL filtering, application control, data loss prevention, and advanced threat protection.

This integration ensures a unified and comprehensive security posture across all devices and network access points.

What Our Clients Say

Finally: a provider that actually delivers on what they say. Their client-first approach is such a relief compared to directly dealing with internet and SD-WAN providers. Halo’s attention to detail is refreshing, and they know how to communicate risk so a client can make informed business decisions. I highly recommend Halo Global as a managed SD-WAN solution provider.
