Putting Web Threat Protection and Content Filtering in the Cloud

Putting Web Threat Protection and Content Filtering in the Cloud

This white paper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications.

In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as:

  • Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers;
  • More comprehensive signatures and URL databases;
  • Supporting increased security for remote users.
