Secure Web Gateway (SWG)

Product code : swg

SWG from Smoothwall is a powerful standalone gateway designed to tackle the issues of acceptable web usage, productivity loss, web-borne malware, and mobile device integration. Available as software, hardware appliance, and virtual machine.


    As the web becomes more expansive — and indispensable — every day, you need a solution to answer the challenges it presents. SWG from Smoothwall is a powerful standalone gateway designed to tackle the issues of acceptable web usage, productivity loss, web-borne malware, and mobile device integration.

    Founded on Smoothwall's groundbreaking Real-Time content filtering, SWG provides a proactive way to analyse and categorise web content without relying on URL blocklists. Where other products rely on historical URL lists, and new user-generated content appears by the second, SWG gives you the confidence of zero-day protection. Whether we're protecting you from inappropriate or illegal content, anonymous proxy usage, malware, or simply wasted resources, SWG from Smoothwall makes your life easier.

    Combined with our reporting suite, real-time activity monitoring, social media controls and bandwidth optimisation, you can now see and control everything your users do on the web. Even when they're using their own devices (BYOD), or taking your devices on the road.

    SWG lets you create a safe, productive web specifically for your environment. The Web You Want.
