Next Gen - Secure Web Gateway solutions for business
EveryCloud can help you stop malware getting onto user devices without stopping productivity with a Next Generation Secure Web Gateway (Next-Gen SWG).
Partnering with market leader Netskope, their Next Gen SWG (secure web gateway) provides capabilities to prevent malware, detect advanced threats, filter websites by category, protect data, and control apps and cloud services for any user, location, or device.
What is Next-Gen SWG?
A Next Generation Secure Web Gateway (SWG) is a new cloud-native solution for protecting enterprises from the growing volume of sophisticated cloud enabled threats and data risks. It is the logical evolution of the traditional secure web gateway, also known as a web proxy or web filter.
The difference between SWG and Next Gen SWG
Unlike a traditional secure web gateway, a Next Gen SWG deals in both cloud and web traffic, whereas the former only deals in web traffic and is blind to cloud-enabled threats and data risks for personal instances of managed apps, thousands of shadow IT apps and cloud services.
The Next Generation from Netskope
We proudly partner with global tech leaders Netskope whose Next-Gen SWG will help you prevent malware and detect advanced threats.
You'll also be able to filter websites by category, protect data, and control apps and cloud services for any user, location, or device. It offers a single-pass inline proxy unmatched for its ability to decode cloud and web traffic including instance and activity.

Netskope’s Next Generation SWG
Netskope’s Next Generation SWG is a cloud-based cloud security solution that prevents and protects against malware, detects advanced threats, filters by category, protects data and controls app use for any user, location, device.
Why businesses should migrate from Secure Web Gateway (SWG) to Next-Generation Secure Web Gateway
Next Gen SWGs use a variety of advanced security technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), to detect and block sophisticated threats that traditional SWGs may miss. This includes threats such as phishing attacks, malware, and ransomware.
Next Gen SWGs provide greater visibility into web traffic and user activity. This can help businesses to identify and respond to security threats more quickly and effectively.
Next Gen SWGs are designed to optimize network performance for cloud-based applications and services. This can help businesses to improve the user experience and productivity.
Next Gen SWGs can help businesses to reduce the cost of security by eliminating the need for multiple security appliances and solutions.
Frequently Asked Questions
A security gateway is a network device or service that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic. It is designed to protect networks from unauthorised access, malicious attacks, and other security threats. Security gateways can be deployed at the edge of a network, between different networks, or within a network.
Security gateways use a variety of security technologies to protect networks, including:
- Firewalls: Firewalls filter network traffic based on predefined rules, such as IP addresses and ports. This can help to prevent unauthorized access to networks and resources.
- Intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS): IDS/IPS systems monitor network traffic for suspicious activity and can block or alert on potential threats.
- Content filtering: Content filtering systems block access to websites and other online content that is considered to be inappropriate or dangerous.
- Data loss prevention (DLP): DLP systems can prevent sensitive data from being leaked or stolen.
Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Web Application Firewall (WAF) are both network security solutions that protect users and data from online threats. However, they have different focuses and use different technologies.
SWG (Secure Web Gateways) focus on protecting users from malicious websites and content. It uses a variety of techniques, such as URL filtering, content filtering, and malware detection, to block access to dangerous websites and prevent users from downloading malicious content. SWG can also be used to enforce security policies, such as restricting access to certain types of websites or blocking certain types of downloads.
Our Next Gen SWGs go even further. A Next Generation SWG deals in both cloud and web traffic.
WAF focuses on protecting web applications from attacks. It uses a variety of techniques, such as input validation, output filtering, and attack signature detection, to block common attacks such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and denial-of-service attacks. WAF can also be used to protect web applications from vulnerabilities, such as known exploits and zero-day attacks.
