We want our network security, not matter how complex, to be “in a nutshell.” Total security doesn’t need to be difficult – or at least it doesn’t need to feel difficult. CIO’s and decision makers are responsible for providing safe network connection without irritating users or slowing down productivity. It’s not an easy job. Many leaders are turning to the protection found in internet access management systems, or IAG - Internet Access Gateway.


We’ve all heard of secure web gateways before, especially if you’ve visited the Sangfor Technologies website or blog – but technology has gone well beyond the capabilities we’ve come to rely on from the SWG, forcing the creation of more powerful solutions to take the traditional SWG to the next level – enter the IAG internet access management system.


What is an access management system?

Access management systems like IAG control access to web resources and provide secure network access using authentication management, policy-based authorization, audit and reporting services and single sign-on convenience among many other vital features.


What role does IAG play in cyber security?

Internet access management controls who accesses a network and what information they take, view or copy. IAM will provide security at the gateway of your network, track the activity of approved users, and reject access for those users deemed to be suspicious – in short, acting as the gatekeeper for your business network and keeping it secure for legitimate users.


What are the most important components of IAG?

  • Minimizes access to non-business related sites and distractions
  • Provides an intelligent billing solution
  • Maximizes bandwidth usage and availability
  • Minimizes leakage and regulatory risks and protects intranet data security
  • Provides visual management and comprehensive control of wireless APs
  • Enables unified internet behaviour management for wired and wireless networks
  • Simplifies legal compliance with simplified cross-regional controls


What are the 3 types of access control?

  • Discretionary Access Control (DAC): means an IT administrator will personally determine the rights of users to enter the network, and users are responsible for controlling and managing any security associated with their devices. This is the least secure method of access control, as the user controls their own security.
  • Mandatory Access Control (MAC): means administrators and a centralized computer system can grant or revoke access from users at any time or location. This form of access control puts more power in the hands of the administrators, who ideally have vast amounts of professional experience.
  • Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): is where access permissions are set automatically dependant on the role of the user in the system. While administrators are still responsible for the overall system, they play less of a role in allowing or disallowing individual access, making security more centralized and comprehensive.


Frequently Asked Questions:

Why do I need IAG?

Users are moving farther from traditional brick and mortar office buildings in favour of a new and necessary distance connections – connections that need to be management for the continued security of the entire company. Internet access management not only protect individual users from each other, but protects the organisational network from malicious files users might drag through the system unwittingly.


How much does IAG cost?

This will depend greatly on how large your organization is, and how many users and devices need to gain access. If you need help determining how much a secure web gateway or internet access management solution costs to deploy and maintain, contact Sangfor Technologies today.


Is my business fully protected if I deploy Internet Access Management?
