Secure Web Gateway provides protection against all kinds of threats that arise when users of your organization who work with cloud services access the web.
For example, when a user tries to download a file from the web, this file is scanned. If the result of the scanning is that the file is malware-infected, the download is blocked.
For more background information about how Secure Web Gateway provides protection, see Secure Web Gateway Concepts.
After setting up Secure Web Gateway, you can configure it and modify its default behavior to enforce a web policy that suits your requirements. How to do this is explained here in more detail.
Setup — For information about how to complete the setup, see About Setting Up Secure Web Gateway.
- Web policy — When configuring your web policy, you work with either the old or the new view of the user interface. The new view provides you with a wider range of functions, including the Rule Builder, which allows you to create rules of your own for use in addition to the default rules.
For information about how to configure your web policy in the new view, see About Configuring a Web Policy. For the old view, see About Configuring a Web Policy in the Old View.
You can move from working with the old view to the new view, see Upgrade from the Old to the New View of the User Interface.
To provide protection against web threats in an environment where users work on-prem, Secure Web Gateway is also offered as an on-prem product. For this product, see the information provided in the Skyhigh Secure Web Gateway (On Prem) main section of this portal.
You can move from working with the on-prem product to the cloud product and migrate the web policy that you have configured on-prem to the cloud environment.
