Why Businesses Need SWG

This can help prevent infections from Internet-borne malware that can propagate through the network and damage the business. It also controls access to objectionable content and provides visibility into web activity.

SWG Deployments Comparison

“Our insurance company required us to drop our old homegrown VPN solution for a more secure one. Fortunately, Perimeter 81 fit that bill – it’s secure, reliable, and easy to set up, unlike our old VPN solution. When compared to other solutions on the market that we tested, Perimeter 81 was, hands down, much simpler to get up and running and integrated with our current SD-WAN infrastructure.”
Brian J. Fischer
IT Manager/Senior Systems Administrator, Manhard
“We have been with Perimeter 81 for about two years and the service has been absolutely superb. We have over 250 employees who all work in a hybrid environment across the UK. With Perimeter 81 we can be calm because we know that our employees are safely accessing our company resources no matter where they are. On-boarding has been quick and smooth and the ongoing assistance in tackling our ever-growing challenges has been impressive.”
Paresh Patel
IT Director of Motor Fuel Limited
“We were looking for a secure and easy to use solution that would be transparent to the users and allow them to access the resources they need. Perimeter 81’s solution is doing just that! What is even better is that the onboarding process for a new user is easy, whether they are in the office or working remotely.”
Nicholas Kinyua
IT Support Specialist, The Room
“We are HIPAA, SOC 2, and GDPR compliant, and we were looking for a secure access solution that offered compliance. From the pricing to demoing the product, the entire process was very easy and enjoyable. The best feature so far has been the ability to deploy gateways. In just a few minutes, we can roll out a gateway relatively close to our employees. Having the ability to roll out an entire office with access to internal resources in just minutes is the best thing I can ask for.”

Hybrid SWG FAQs

What makes a Hybrid SWG different?
Most Secure Web Gateways come in two flavors: on-prem or in the cloud. Both have their advantages. On-prem solves compliance and privacy issues, while cloud-based SWGs are easier to implement. However, both increase latency, which is something you can avoid with Perimeter 81’s SWG.
Can you help me plug the security hole of bypassed traffic?
Yes. Our Hybrid SWG provides the option to connect directly to the Internet without going through a cloud SWG first. This provides all the key security measures you need including SSL inspection and web filtering without slowing down your Internet traffic.
Why have on-cloud and on-device options?
Perimeter 81’s Hybrid SWG provides the advantages of cloud-based and on-prem solutions in one package. With a hybrid SWG can avoid latency issues and still remain protected, and you can assign different rules based on context such as connected to the company network or not.
Can I assign different rules for different people, groups, or company divisions?
Yes. Perimeter 81’s Hybrid SWG lets you choose how you segment web filtering rules. You can apply some rules to individuals, others to groups or different networks within the company, and even set global rules that apply to all employees all of the time.
