Perimeter 81, the Zero Trust Network Access market leader, has expanded its Security Services Edge (SSE) solution to include a Secure Web Gateway component. The Secure Web Gateway (SWG) extends the organization's remarkable simplicity of use to Web filtering, ensuring that company personnel is protected from fraudulent websites and unsafe information regardless of where they work.
The Secure Web Gateway from Perimeter 81 will restrict access to specific URLs or categories of websites based on the user, their role, and other factors such as the day of the week. These categories are continuously updated daily to ensure that no site goes unnoticed. In addition, employee access to "restricted" or "warned" websites is tracked and reported for auditing purposes to ensure that business policies and auditing requirements are met. For applications that do not require SSL inspection and protect employee privacy, such as when browsing financial or healthcare websites, bypass rules can be created.
“The new Secure Web Gateway functionality is a big step forward for our Cybersecurity Experience (CSX) Platform, and delivering an enterprise-grade secured corporate network over the public internet, With this release, we are extending the reach of our radically simple cybersecurity beyond the corporate hybrid cloud, to the infinite number of touchpoints an employee may encounter on the web. The Secure Web Gateway will be transparent to users and very easy to administer, like all the other components of our Security Services Edge solution.”

Chief Growth Officer at Perimeter 81, Sagi Gidali, adds: “Our recent State of the Cybersecurity Report revealed that 71% VPs and CIOs find it more difficult to prevent cyberattacks due to the complexity of the cybersecurity solutions they use. By providing an exceptional cybersecurity experience for both users and the IT team that implements and manages cybersecurity, we can assist companies in protecting both their hybrid networks and their hybrid employees more effectively. With this release, we have expanded that protection with our Secure Web Gateway, managed from the same easy-to-use dashboard.”
