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

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.

Data Loss Prevention​

The web is a convenient avenue for users to steal or unknowingly expose sensitive data. The SmartEdge SWG provides market-leading DLP. With Bitglass, sensitive data patterns can be identified in real time with prebuilt or custom identifiers. When users attempt to upload sensitive files to unmanaged apps such as personal email or social media, Bitglass can automatically block the upload in real time.

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.
