SmartEdge Secure Web Gateway

Users access countless websites and shadow IT, each destination challenging data protection, threat protection, and user productivity. Only Bitglass’ SmartEdge on-device Secure Web Gateway delivers security, performance, privacy and low overhead for the distributed workforce.

"We tested Bitglass and two other cloud SWG for performance. Bitglass SmartEdge was equivalent to direct access, while the others more than halved the bandwidth."

-Director, Network Security,  G100 Automobile Giant

"Bitglass ZTNA uniquely delivers real-time DLP & threat protection with or without agents. Competing solutions require agents, yet do not enforce real-time control."

-VP,  G100 Medical Devices & Services Giant

Content Filtering

As users navigate the web, they may access inappropriate content or unproductive websites that distract them from their job duties. SmartEdge SWG provides granular controls, filtering web destinations by user group, device, and location. Content can also be controlled based on category (e.g. malware sites, gambling, pornography, racism, and dozens more) as well as by trust score.

SmartEdge Architecture

Bitglass provides the world’s only on-device SWG. The solution decrypts and inspects traffic locally via a SmartEdge agent on each device, forgoing the need for on-premises appliances, VPNs, network hops, and cloud proxies. This approach ensures enhanced performance, scalability, cost savings, and user experience. Bitglass serves as the certificate authority and provides secure key management on each endpoint to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks.
