Secure Web Gateway and Proxy

The Netbox Secure Web Gateway model has the flexibility to be placed behind an existing firewall and transparently filter web traffic. It maintains a high level of security with the use of URL filtering, transparent and direct proxy.

Included Features

  • Reverse Proxy
  • Internet Authentication
  • Transparent and Direct Proxy
  • Internet Acceleration
  • Quota Management
  • URL Web Filtering
  • VPN with WAN optimisation
  • Network Monitoring
  • Reporting (Scheduled and Ad-hoc)

The key difference between the Secure Web Gateway and the UTM model is that the Secure Web Gateway is designed to sit behind existing routers or firewalls and consequently does not include firewall or traffic shaping capabilities. 

Netbox Blue's SWG model includes the following Netbox Assist Support services:-

  • Transparent, real-time updates from the Netbox Blue Research Labs.
  • Regular back-up of the unique configuration and policy settings for ease of restore and business continuity.
  • Remote, heart-beat monitoring of the underlying hardware platform.
  • On-site hardware support (iSeries or iRSeries) or rapid replacement program (Mini).
