Censornet Web Security

<< Back to Blogs

Multiple security layers at the gateway offer comprehensive protection from web-borne malware and other threats using a powerful combination of real-time traffic inspection, URL reputation analysis and heuristics.

Web Security is fully integrated with CensorNet’s Unified Security Service (USS) that also includes Email Security, Cloud Application Security and Multi-Factor Authentication. USS provides a single web interface for central policy configuration and management, as well as data visualization and reporting.

Web Security is deployed using agents or local proxies, or a combination of both, to meet the needs of organizations of all sizes. Flexible deployment options simplify implementation, accelerating time to value.

Customer Opinion

We needed to allow the off-site users to access the internet without going through the VPN, as it really hindered connectivity. We wanted to ensure all users were as protected as possible. CensorNet Web Security allowed us to do this.
