Hybrid Web Security: The Best of Cloud Computing and On-Premises Combined
Web security has evolved along with the Web itself, and the varying threats and attacks that need to be controlled at any one time. Initially, the biggest threat to people using the Web was one of accidently viewing inappropriate content. This is where the original Block lists came from such as X-Block, a product in the history of M86 Security, and one of the first products available from the 8e6 side of the business. Productivity became an issue when businesses started providing wide spread access to users. To help manage time spent on shopping sites or personal email, time of day controls and quotas became popular. At this time, the threat from viruses and malware came from mainly floppy disk use.
