Advanced Web Security Protection

GDS offers a comprehensive web security solution that provides advanced malware protection along with application visibility and control. Backed by the largest threat detection network in the world, our web security solution rapidly analyzes web traffic to detect emerging threats and zero-day attacks.

Cloud-delivered firewall services extend perimeter protection to branch offices to ensure consistent policy enforcement across the enterprise. Traditional content filtering combines with real-time scanning to block undesirable URLs at the DNS level, before a connection is even established. Granular policies and context-based rules protect remote and roaming users without impacting performance.

GDS Managed Security Solutions

The GDS solution makes it easy to set up, allow and block lists as well as category-based content filtering according to organizational policies and regulatory compliance requirements. Specific users can be given access to categories that would normally be blocked, and different policies can be applied depending on whether users are on or off the corporate network. Detailed reports show allow and block actions for specific URLs and users to enable fine-tuning of policy configurations.

This security solution integrates cloud access security broker (CASB) functionality to enforce policies governing the use of cloud-based apps and block risky or inappropriate apps. It also protects organizations against data breaches through a data loss prevention engine that can be configured to enforce encryption, quarantine and end-user notifications when the movement of sensitive data is detected.

42% of the top 100,000 websites have a history of malware distribution, cyber attacks and security breaches.

One Employee Can Expose Your Entire Network to Threats

While the Internet is critical to business operations, it also comes with significant threats. According to a recent report, 42 percent of the top 100,000 websites have a history of malware distribution, cyberattacks and security breaches. If employees access these sites or other malicious, inappropriate or unproductive content, they can expose the network to cyber threats.

Many government regulations require organizations to implement safeguards that protect against these threats and enforce acceptable use policies. Organizations also need to prevent the use of streaming media, peer-to-peer file-sharing and other services that can sap productivity, hog bandwidth and create legal risks.

The firewall is typically the first line of defense against malicious web content, but firewalls alone do not provide adequate protection. The right content filtering solution enables granular enforcement of company policies prohibiting access to social media, pornographic content, and other illicit material and applications.

With GDS Web Security, you don’t have to worry about these problems:

  • Cyberattacks launched via malicious websites
  • Access to risky content and applications
  • Rapidly evolving malware that evades traditional tools
  • Network performance drains due to high bandwidth usage
  • Exposure of sensitive data in unsecure sites
  • Difficulty keeping up with ever-changing security threats

GDS Web Security enables you to:

Reduce security, regulatory compliance and legal risks

by blocking access to millions of known websites. Dynamic content analysis also accurately identifies 90 percent of unknown websites in real time to protect against emerging threats.

Use behavioral analytics and threat intelligence to detect malicious activity

that attempts to evade traditional web security tools. Up-to-the-minute global threat data helps identify domains and IP addresses that hackers are using to launch attacks.

Enhance perimeter security with a cloud-managed firewall

that extends protection to remote offices. The GDS Web Security solution features next-generation firewall services that provide visibility and control over Internet traffic without the need for physical or virtual appliances.

Protect remote devices on and off the network

while delivering a fast and reliable user experience.

Get actionable insights

through a centralized management tool that provides threat scoring, alerting and reporting across the environment. Log data is rapidly indexed and analyzed to provide greater visibility into web usage and security threats.

Control the use of unapproved applications and services

such as social media, file sharing and streaming content. Users can be allowed to access applications but not perform risky activities such as uploading documents or sharing information.

Prevent the loss and exposure of sensitive information

through deep content inspection. A highly configurable data loss prevention engine continuously monitors sensitive data and provides automated, policy-driven actions to reduce the risk of a data breach.

Satisfy regulatory compliance mandates

by enforcing Internet use policies across the enterprise. An integrated CASB reduces shadow IT risks and helps meet compliance requirements as data moves to and from the cloud.

Choose between appliance-based and virtual deployment models

to meet your specific needs. By implementing virtual appliances in branch locations, you gain robust protection without the need for additional hardware.

Gain a fully monitored and managed solution

that mitigates security threats while relieving support headaches. The security experts at GDS will keep the solution up-to-date and respond to threats and alerts.

GDS Web Security Helps Stop These Threats

Every few years, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) releases a report on the most serious web application security risks. The OWASP Top 10 provides organizations with guidelines for implementing security tools and processes for reducing the risk that these threats will result in a cyberattack or data breach.

The GDS Web Security solution can mitigate many of these threats by discovering and blocking malicious web applications connected to the corporate environment. It also helps protect against compromised accounts and malicious insiders by analyzing user behavior across cloud and on-premises platforms.

The most recent OWASP Top 10 list includes:

  • SQL injection attacks
  • Broken authentication
  • Sensitive data exposure
  • XML External Entities
  • Broken access control
  • Security misconfiguration
  • Cross-site scripting
  • Insecure deserialization
  • Using components with known vulnerabilities
  • Insufficient logging and monitoring
