Unify access governance, information security, and threat protection across your Enterprise.

Symantec is driving a new definition of Web and Cloud security. By integrating advanced threat protection, CASB SaaS Controls, web risk, and data security into our web gateway solutions, we provide a simple path to safely adopt cloud applications and architectures.

We deliver a true hybrid architecture: our universal policy lets you control all users across a cloud-based Web Security Service, highly scalable virtual appliances for private and public cloud, and a full family of on-premises appliances.

The cloud is a chaotic place

Welcome to the Cloud Generation, where employees demand flexibility and access wherever they are, but can expose your most sensitive data to risk.

Connected environments—like mobile and Internet of Things—introduce new attack surfaces that must be protected; Increased use of SaaS Cloud Apps are driving the need for new compliance and security controls, while forcing network architects to rethink network designs.

The best way to protect this vulnerable landscape is via cloud generation gateways to broker the interactions devices have with the world around them. Doing so allows organizations to perform in-depth inspection and gain complete visibility, even when endpoint security cannot be used.
