Cloud Web Security
Contego Cloud Web Security
Contego’s Cloud Web Security protects any end-user, using any device, from any place in the world! No hardware, no software, no endpoint agents. Imagine this. We protect our United States-based customers from web based threats when they access the internet from an airplane 30,000 feet over Europe.
Effective information security is the ability to automatically analyze and block the problems that pose a threat. Security must be proactive! The older security threats – viruses, spyware and botnets are becoming more complex while our customer’s workforce is becoming much more mobile. This presents our customers with a unique challenge. How do they protect their end-users and data while still providing the mobility demanded from today’s workers?
An effective web security solution must filter unwanted software/malware from user-initiated Web/Internet traffic and enforce corporate, regulatory and policy compliance. To achieve this goal, our customers chose “The Cloud” because it offers the standard URL filtering, Anti-Virus & Anti Spyware, with malicious code detection and filtering while also using application controls for popular Web-based applications and data leak prevention. Contego Cloud Web Security protects against data leakage through the HTTP/HTTPS channel, including Webmail, IM and attachments to enable regulatory compliance and to secure a company’s sensitive information.
Contego offers superior network security functionality:
- Everything is done in “The Cloud!”
- Our customers no longer push signatures to appliances or end-user desktops.
- Browser Access Control – The Contego Cloud Web Security validates browsers are fully up to date before employees are allowed to access the Internet.
- Bandwidth Control – Contego Web Security Cloud empowers our customers to control bandwidth consumption at granular levels. This allows our clients to know which employee consumes how much bandwidth, at what time of day, from which location, ensuring there is always the correct amount of space.
- Granular reporting and visibility – Contego customers have the power to see any transaction, performed by any user, from any location, within three seconds of the transaction taking place.
