With the increase in SSL web traffic, zero-day malware and growing number of social websites, its becoming more and more important to protect employees from internet-borne attacks. Mid-sized enterprises are turning to traditional secure web gateway vendors to solve these problems, only to be disappointed by the cost and resources required to deploy and maintain one. There is a growing trend, where customers are looking to consolidate next generation firewall with secure web gateway functionality. With FortiGate SWG, you can realize the benefits of a secure web gateway, while reducing the complexity of owning one. Administrators can take back control by gaining visibility into SSL traffic, and protect employees from sophisticated threats using advanced detection and prevention techniques which are powered by Fortinets real-time threat intelligence service.
