Enterprise relies on secure web gateways (SWG) to filter malicious internet traffic and enforce company security policies in real-time, and those proven most capable are thus evaluated carefully by security and risk management professionals like those at Gartner, Inc.
Prime SWG use cases revolve around enabling more comprehensive monitoring and visibility and the detection and advanced notice of malware or malicious traffic infiltration.
As an addendum to their recently released MQ analysis of SWG solutions in the global marketplace, Gartner has recently published their article Critical Capabilities for Secure Web Gateways, where they evaluated the Sangfor IAM SWG solution, a member of the Gartner MQ for SWG, for the afore mentioned critical components.
Sangfor IAM was determined to be strong in the detection and defense against malware, botnets and advanced threat, due to their combined and correlated use of several powerful, Sangfor-designed inspection, detection and defense technologies, namely Engine Zero, Neural-X and ZSand.
Sangfor’s Engine Zero uses AI and machine learning to expand your capacity to discover unknown malware and their corresponding families, based on a database of tens of millions of malware samples.
Sangfor again harnesses the power of AI in their innovative threat intelligence and analytics platform, Neural-X. Threat Intelligence is the organized, analysed and refined information that enables organizations to understand, assess and prevent against known and unknown risks from external sources. Deep learning is used to provide an in-depth analysis of vector association – allowing Neural-X to learn independently.
Garnter also mentions ZSand, Sangfor’s sandboxing technology designed to isolate and detonate potentially malicious files in a safe virtual environment, then sharing relevant information with Neural-X threat intelligence, and thus encapsulating the security of enterprise in a closed and secure loop.
