When it comes to protecting web-surfing clients from malware and enforcing company security policies, a Secure Web Gateway (SWG) is a vital tool, according to Gartner. But as with most other security solutions, the SWG’s target covers a subset of total traffic and should therefore be part of a larger security stack composed of different tools for various traffic types and protection properties. Not all traffic needs to go through all devices, and not all devices need to scale at the same rate. But an orchestration solution will intelligently steer the right traffic to the right security functions based on real-time policy evaluation.
A Secure Web Gateway is just one, albeit critical, complement to a well-designed security architecture. In this discussion, we look at how the F5 SSL Orchestrator easily integrates and orchestrates decrypted inspectable traffic to both third-party tools, and to F5’s own SWG solution.
What’s generally involved in orchestrating and optimizing traffic through the security stack.
