Organizations can do more over the web today than ever before. Today’s web offers a dynamic, real-time user experience. However, the web has also become a more dangerous place, with increasingly sophisticated attacks released every day. McAfee® Web Gateway is a critical defense for any organization to protect against emerging malware threats.

It empowers organizations with secure internet access while greatly reducing risk through an advanced security approach that combines powerful, local intent analysis with cloud-based protection powered by McAfee Labs.

Comprehensive Inbound and Outbound Protection
McAfee Web Gateway delivers comprehensive security for all aspects of web traffic in one high-performance appliance software architecture. For user-initiated web requests, McAfee Web Gateway first enforces an organization’s internet use policy. For all allowed traffic, it then uses local and global techniques to analyze the nature and intent of all content and active code entering the network via the requested web pages, providing immediate protection against malware and other hidden threats. And, unlike basic packet inspection techniques, McAfee Web Gateway can examine secure sockets layer (SSL) traffic to provide in-depth protection against malicious code or control applications that have been hidden through encryption.

McAfee Web Gateway delivers high-performance web security through an on-premises appliance that can be deployed both as dedicated hardware and a virtual machine.
