The Global Secure Web Gateway Market size is expected to reach $11.5 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 16.9% CAGR during the forecast period. A secure web gateway is a network security service offered on-site or on cloud-based platform. By monitoring web-based requests for suspicious applications and websites, secure web gateways between users and the internet deliver advanced network security. In order to provide organizations with reliable web protection, a secure web gateway requires critical security technology, e.g. URL filtering, application monitoring, preventative data loss, antivirus, and HTTPs.
As businesses and their mobile workforces expand, protecting smartphone users from threats has become extremely difficult. That is because companies, some at headquarters and others in the cloud, have a range of applications. Applications are managed from a remote access VPN at headquarters. Users are separated from the VPN when they access cloud services and are exposed to risk. This is why organizations use SWGs because when users are disconnected from the VPN, they have safe internet access.
Secure web gateways are mounted at the edge of networks or at user endpoints as a software component or hardware unit. The traffic communicated to and fro between the users and the networks have to be passed through the gateway that monitors it. It tracks malicious code traffic, web-based application use and attempts to link the URLs of all users/non-users.
The solution offers the best layered security protection; prevents data loss and guarantees encrypted traffic. Web gateways are a top priority for IT security investments and security technologies which the users trust. While such gateways exist over a lifetime, their prevalence and the need for strong security are not anticipated to occur while accessing the Internet and Internet applications remotely.
In both industrialized and emerging economies, advances in business management systems have helped innovate several industries. Many technology providers have begun investing strongly in these global markets in order to satisfy the rising demand for powerful secure web gateway solutions in South Asia, Southeast Asia and MEA. Established and rising web gateway providers aim to extend their industries across untapped markets in order to maximize their global market share.
