Whitepaper: Putting Web Threat Protection and Content Filtering in the Cloud

This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as:

  • Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers
  • More comprehensive signature and URL database
  • Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location
