Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market, giving you a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market’s competitors. By applying a graphical treatment and a uniform set of evaluation criteria, a Magic Quadrant helps you quickly ascertain how well technology providers are executing their stated visions and how well they are performing against Gartner’s market view. What determines a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways? Leaders are high-momentum vendors (based on sales and mind share growth) with established track records in SWGs, as well as vision and business investments indicating that they are well positioned for the future. In addition to offering strong SWG products and/or services, Leaders have built effective sales and distribution channels for their entire product portfolios. Leaders that offer on-premises and cloud services have recognized the strategic importance of a two-pronged sales and distribution channel. They have established a traditional value-added reseller (VAR) channel to sell on-premises appliances. They have also developed partnerships with ISPs and carriers to sell cloud services, often as an add-on to bandwidth contracts.

What is a Secure Web Gateway (SWG)?
Secure Web Gateway (SWG) solutions use web filtering to enforce company Internet access policies. They also filter unwanted software, especially malware, from user-initiated Internet connections.
SWGs are hugely important as enterprises have continued to evolve their WAN Edge. Applications are rapidly migrating to the cloud, and the attack surface at remote sites and branch locations continues to increase. Security risks are especially high for web-based traffic, and as attack techniques become more advanced, organizations need an integrated approach to secure against external and internal risks.
An SWG solution should include URL filtering, application control, deep HTTPS/SSL inspection, data loss prevention and remote browser isolation capabilities. SWGs are increasingly popular, and the overall web gateway market is expected to reach $4B by 2023.
Fortinet’s SWG provides flexible deployment options, including explicit, transparent, and inline modes, to protect against internet-based threats without harming end-user experience.
Secure Web Gateway vs. Firewall
SWGs prevent malware infections, block access to malicious websites and applications, and enforce company compliance policies, especially at branch offices and for remote workers.
SWGs are similar to firewalls in that they both can discern malicious Internet traffic from benign traffic, and both provide advanced network security protections. Firewalls function at the packet level. The primary role of SWGs, however, is to identify and protect against advanced attacks by inspecting web traffic at the application level—without compromising on overall web experience.
A fully integrated enterprise security strategy requires both SWGs and next-generation firewalls (NGFW).
Secure Web Gateway vs. Proxy
Traditional web proxy tools manage how traffic passes between an organization’s internal endpoints and the Internet. Over time, organizations have embraced Secure Web Gateway solutions to offer a more advanced set of capabilities beyond what traditional proxy alone can offer.
Fortinet 6. 4 Secure Web Gateway Deployment Use Cases
FortiGate SWG protects against web attacks with URL filtering, visibility and control of encrypted web traffic via SSL inspection, and application of granular web application policies. This demo walks through several key use cases: How to block malicious web pages using FortiGuard Web Filtering, How to enforce Acceptable Use policy, How to enforce DLP policy, and How to utilize Browser Isolation with SWG.
Fortinet Secure Web Gateway

FortiGate SWG is best suited for enterprises looking to consolidate network security services and optimize the workload of security teams.
Enterprises can also adopt FortiProxy, a dedicated Secure Web Gateway solution. Among many benefits, FortiProxy offers integration with FortiGuard Threat Intelligence services—continuously updated threat intelligence used to enhance DNS and web filtering, intrusion prevention, dynamic analysis using sandboxing, antivirus and DLP, and content analysis.
The Importance of Secure Web Gateway
SWGs keep enterprise networks safe from malicious Internet traffic, preventing threats from entering the network and causing an infection or intrusion.
Critical SWG features such as SSL inspection are increasingly necessary to protect enterprises, especially with more than half of all attacks and malicious Internet traffic today using encryption.
