|How You Can Increase Your Web Security With Secure Gateway®. by luqmanali12: 1:36pm On Aug 05, 2022|
As a consequence of digitization and the great rise of new technologies, there are more and more concepts related to security and technology. It is understood that the security of applications refers to all actions, security measures and all processes carried out to make apps more secure, in terms of data protection, codes, or theft of any type of information. In addition, work is also being done to include tools and systems that protect applications once they have been published on the market.
Alscotoday provides full-time Secure Gateway® protection for your web and applications by analyzing all traffic and only allowing legitimate and authorized access. Simply you just need to Point your Website, Application, to Secure Gateway® DNS Servers. The System delivers scalable application security and monitoring for off-the-shelf and custom applications, including third-party frameworks.
Apply business rules to online traffic, inspect and block attacks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) and malware/virus protection, and filter outgoing traffic and data to mask credit card data. The system helps achieve compliance with PCI-DSS requirements.
Secure Gateway® is designed to require zero-touch configuration and to continue getting smarter as it is used. Traffic is constantly analyzed to profile behavior, detect inconsistencies, and determine reputation, leveraging advanced intelligence algorithms and expert security analysts. Every attack makes Secure Gateway® smarter and even more secure from emerging threats.
Why is application security important?
Currently, the security of applications has become one of the most relevant aspects to take into account in the development of an app, since they are usually available through different networks. These connections are increasingly vulnerable to potential security threats.
In addition, it is important to mention that the security of the applications can be based on including hardware, software or any system that can minimize the possible damage of an attack on the security of the app.
How does a secure web gateway work?
Some secure web gateways operate on proxy servers. Just as a person can send a legal agent to a live auction to represent them, a proxy server represents another device on the Internet. A proxy server is a server that makes requests and receives responses on behalf of a client device (e.g. a user's laptop) or another server. For secure web gateways, this proxy server can be either an actual physical server or a virtual machine server in the cloud.
Other secure web gateways are software only; software gateways can operate either on company premises or in the cloud as a SaaS application. Finally, some secure web gateways are deployed as on-premises “appliances”: physical hardware devices that connect to a company's IT infrastructure.
No matter where they operate or how they are deployed, all secure web gateways work pretty much the same. When a client device sends a request to a website or application on the Internet, the request first passes through the secure web gateway. The gateway inspects the request and only forwards it if it does not violate established security policies, much like security guards can inspect someone's belongings at a physical security checkpoint before letting them through. A similar process also happens in reverse: all incoming data is inspected by the secure web gateway before being passed on to users.
Since secure web gateways can work anywhere, they are particularly useful for managing remote employees. By requiring remote workers to access the internet through a secure web gateway, companies that rely on a distributed workforce can better prevent data breaches, even if they don't have direct control over their employees' devices or networks.
