Whitepaper: Putting Web Threat Protection and Content Filtering in the Cloud

White Paper Published By: Webroot

Published:  Sep 18, 2013
Type:  White Paper
Length:  7 pages

This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as:

Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers
More comprehensive signature and URL database
Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location
