Product Advantages

Internet Access Gateway

Proxy Avoidance Protection

Internet Access Gateway

Intelligent Traffic Management

Sangfor IAG improves bandwidth utilization by more than 30% using three unique major traffic management solutions. Dynamic Traffic Control automatically adjusts traffic control policies and intelligently allocates idle bandwidth resources. Intelligent Flow Control precisely manages both up-link and down-link P2P traffic and can customize traffic "packages" for different users, allocating specific traffic quotas and limiting bandwidth for heavier users.

Internet Access Gateway

Sangfor IAG manages and controls network applications more comprehensively, accurately, and conveniently with the largest application signature database in Asia, which can identify more than 6,000+ applications in its database including 700+ cloud applications, 1,000+ mobile applications, 300+ web applications, and is updated every 2 weeks. In addition, it precisely controls applications according to their specific functions, such as distinguishing upload, download, and other actions in the network. Finally, bulk management mode for large enterprises greatly improves management efficiency.

Internet Access Gateway

Uncover Encrypted Traffic with Unparalleled Visibility

Typically, a majority of internet traffic is protected by SSL/TLS encryption. While encryption helps to keep user and corporate data protected and private, it also creates security challenges when it comes to the rapid growth of malware infections and other malicious content. Organizations are unable to see what is inside the traffic when it is encrypted. Due to this reason, organizations require a level of visibility into encrypted traffic to determine whether any malicious payloads are lurking behind the encryption.

Internet Access Gateway

Unified Network-Wide Management of all Clients

Sangfor IAG provides Unified Management and effectively controls both Wired and Wireless networks for the entire network. With intuitive and flexible authentication methods, it fully guarantees the security of access control, supporting a variety of traditional authentication methods such as username/password, IP/MAC binding and a wide array of value-added marketing authentication methods (QR code, SMS, WeChat, App, Alipay, etc.). Permissions are controlled based on user, application, location, and client types while the built-in wireless controller function manages Sangfor APs directly, building a faster and more cost-effective wireless network.
