Fundamental web security delivered by McAfee Web Gateway
Organizations can do more over the web today than ever before. Today’s web offers a dynamic, real-time user experience. However, the web has also become a more dangerous place, with increasingly sophisticated attacks released every day. McAfee® Web Gateway is a critical defense for any organization to protect against emerging malware threats. It empowers organizations with secure internet access while greatly reducing risk through an advanced security approach that combines powerful, local intent analysis with cloud-based protection powered by McAfee Labs.
McAfee Web Gateway delivers high-performance web security through an on-premises appliance that can be deployed both as dedicated hardware and a virtual machine.
Comprehensive Inbound and Outbound Protection
McAfee Web Gateway delivers comprehensive security for all aspects of web traffic in one high-performance appliance software architecture. For user-initiated web requests, McAfee Web Gateway first enforces an organization’s internet use policy. For all allowed traffic, it then uses local and global techniques to analyze the nature and intent of all content and active code entering the network via the requested web pages, providing immediate protection against malware and other hidden threats. And, unlike basic packet inspection techniques, McAfee Web Gateway can examine secure sockets layer (SSL) traffic to provide in-depth protection against malicious code or control applications that have been hidden through encryption.
Integrated industry-leading McAfee Data Loss Prevention
Inbound protection also mitigates risks for organizations hosting websites that accept data or document uploads from external sources. In reverse-proxy mode, McAfee Web Gateway scans all content before it is uploaded, securing both the server and the content.
To secure outbound traffic, McAfee Web Gateway uses industry-leading McAfee Data Loss Prevention technology to scan user-generated content on all key web protocols, including HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP. It also protects against loss of confidential, sensitive, or regulated information leaking from the organization through social networking sites, blogs, wikis, or online productivity tools such as web-based mail, organizers, and calendars. McAfee Web Gateway further safeguards against unauthorized data leaving the organization through bot-infected machines attempting to phone home or transmit sensitive data.

McAfee Web Gateway Delivers the Industry’s Best Protection
As the number one-rated web security solution in malware protection, McAfee Web Gateway uses a patented approach to signatureless intent analysis with the McAfee Gateway Anti-Malware Engine. Proactive intent analysis filters out previously unknown, or zeroday malicious content from web traffic in real time. By scanning a web page’s active content, emulating and understanding its behavior, and predicting its intent, McAfee Web Gateway prevents the delivery of zero-day malware to endpoints, dramatically reducing the costs associated with system cleanup and remediation.
Security Risk Management and Reporting
The popular and respected security management technology, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) software, is supported by McAfee Web Gateway as a single source for all security reporting. McAfee ePO software delivers detailed web security reporting through the McAfee Content Security Reporter extension. McAfee Content Security Reporter gives you information and forensic tools to understand how your organization is using the web, comply with regulations, identify trends, isolate problems, and tailor your filtering settings to enforce your web security policies. McAfee Content Security Reporter offers an external, standalone reporting server designed to offload resourceintensive data processing and storage from the existing McAfee ePO server, enabling it to scale to meet the reporting needs of even the largest global organizations.
Insight and protection within encrypted traffic
Sophisticated cybercriminals have turned to SSL traffic (HTTPS and HTTP/2) as a backdoor through the enterprise security barrier. Ironically, a protocol designed to provide security must also be assessed for risk. McAfee Web Gateway integrates malware detection, SSL inspection, and certificate validation together for a comprehensive approach to encrypted traffic inspection. There’s no need for an additional investment in SSL scanning hardware—McAfee Web Gateway performs all of this in a single hardware or virtual appliance architecture. McAfee Web Gateway directly scans all SSL traffic to ensure the complete security, integrity, and privacy of encrypted transactions.
