You are here: VMware Cloud Web Security
Cloud web security is the process of securing web applications, data, and resources hosted on cloud computing platforms. As more organizations move their operations to the cloud, it’s crucial to have strong security measures in place to protect sensitive information and ensure compliance with industry regulations. VMware Cloud Web Security™ is a cloud-hosted service that protects users and IT infrastructure, SaaS, and web applications from threats, offering visibility, control, and compliance. Enterprises and employees use SaaS and web applications in their everyday business tasks, leading to a growing risk of advanced threats, malware, and exposure of data. As employees increasingly rely on a combination of enterprise and personal devices in the workplace, as well as the growing trend of Work from Anywhere (WFA), IT teams must be poised to meet these increased security needs.
Cloud Web Security operates under a common management pane or single pane of glass, making it easy to set security and networking policies. The VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator ensures consistent policies are deployed.
Cloud Web Security policies are identity, context, policy, and app destination-based, and can be used in WFA environments along with a network of secure access service edge (SASE) points-of-presence (POPs).
Cloud Web Security scales easily and helps lower costs by eliminating the need for on-premises security. Less bandwidth consumption on MPLS links without the traffic backhaul to the data center also lowers costs.
Web access control on a company-wide level.
Restrict/control content accessible to Internet users.
Allow SSL encryption/decryption over web traffic.
Data protection with anti-malware, antivirus, web isolation, and e-mail protection services.
Seamless authentication of end users to HTTPS websites.
Allows the real-time recording of logs (Web, data loss protection (DLP) & events) and reports (threat analysis, traffic analysis, & DLP) for up to at least 30 days.
Visibility into SaaS applications used by the enterprise and monitors communication between users and cloud services.
Secures traffic between an enterprise and cloud providers and enables granular control which can enforce policies to improve and standardize user experience while enhancing control over session visibility and traffic management.
Provides an isolated environment that analyzes and prevents threats from getting to the network, thus protecting against web-based threats caused by downloading, installation, and execution of all document and file type such as scripts and executables and archives and compressed packages.
Inspects content and detects exposure of sensitive data which needs to be blocked or monitored using DLP policies with a detailed audit trail.
Prevents the unintentional or intentional leakage of sensitive data such as stolen personal information, files, and storage accounts to the Internet which supports the customer’s responsibility on regulatory and audit compliances such as HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, and other data privacy laws.
VMware Cloud Web Security is offered in Standard and Advanced packages, with threat detection, data protection, and visibility features designed for enterprises with a range of security needs. Advanced packages provide additional in-line data loss prevention (DLP) visibility and Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) control, as well as advanced sandbox control, to protect against web-based threats and data leakage.
