Combining comprehensive features and functionality with superior scalability and performance, F5 Secure Web Gateway Services are uniquely positioned to provide the best alternative for TMG replacement.

Secure Web Gateway Services provide full, forward web proxy functionality, including the ability to evaluate and proxy encrypted, SSL-based traffic. The solution can be configured to secure web access for a variety of clients, both internal and remote.
F5’s reverse proxy terminates external connections at the perimeter and, upon successful authentication and authorization, establishes a proxy connection into the organization’s LAN. Without this central management point solution, access must be configured and managed separately at each internal resource, such as Exchange and SharePoint.
Secure Web Gateway Services block access to more malicious sites than any other solution. The threat intelligence behind Secure Web Gateway Services analyzes more than 5 billion web requests every day to produce a comprehensive categorization database of 40 million website URLs.
Acting as a single point of control in the organization’s perimeter network, SWGS can provide remote users with access to corporate assets as well as secure Internet web access. Using the powerful APM solution, administrators have the flexibility to evaluate and assign policy at an extremely granular level.
SWGS provides IT administrators and HR professionals with the tools they need to ensure acceptable use policies are both effective and appropriate. The solution includes several dynamically generated and exportable reports that provide a clear picture of the enterprise’s web activity.
