Protect computers from spyware, botnets, and viruses
Symantec Web Gateway detects and blocks malware from Web sites and Internet downloads. Symantec Web Gateway must be installed in the inline network configuration or as a proxy server to block downloads.
You can display reports on a wide range of statistics. Available reports include most accessed Web sites, most active users, infected clients, most common malware, network attacks, and infection sources. Click a statistic in a report to get more information about that user, computer, Web site, category, and so on.
Symantec Web Gateway can monitor SSL-encrypted Internet traffic for malware or pass the encrypted traffic to Symantec Data Loss Prevention. You must have a separate Symantec Data Loss Prevention appliance to analyze SSL-encrypted traffic for data loss.
