EdgeWave has announced the release of version 8.1 of the iPrism Secure Web Gateway. The updated Internet filtering and cybersecurity solution features enhanced security controls and more granular policy control to provide even greater protection while making management of the solution more straightforward.

The iPrism Secure Web Gateway is an appliance-based web filtering and Internet security solution that provides protection from a wide range of web-based threats, while allowing organizations to carefully control the content that can be accessed via their Internet connections. The latest version the web gateway is a set it and forget it solution, offering comprehensive URL filtering and malware protection with minimal maintenance. The latest release gives users even better value, usability, and performance, thanks to several key upgrades.

While an appliance-based solution, iPrism is deployed as a cloud-hybrid platform and features highly granular controls to keep networks secure and free from malware. The latest release of IPrism includes a totally redesigned reporting system accessible through a redesigned dashboard with a range of new report criteria. Users can now track and monitor web and application usage in real time, and see who is using applications and web portals, where they are located, what they are doing, and when access was gained.

TLS/SSL encryption/decryption is now possible without needing to “call back” to client, and EdgeWave offers proactive exception handling through overrides while maintaining a higher level of granularity. The latest release also features enhanced scheduling and storage features.

As with previous versions of iPrism Web Security, users benefit from real time URL analysis via iGuard, integrated antivirus protection, secure traffic analysis – HTTPS SNI and Host Certificate inspection with full TLS decryption, application analysis and control, and anti-botnet protection. Anti-circumvention and anonymous browsing protection is also included to prevent users from bypassing security controls using anonymizers and web proxies.
