In this Digital era, business networks are changing fast in which many companies are using cloud services and letting employees work from anywhere. This makes it harder to keep things secure as there are already many insecure networks present. The old security tools aren’t strong enough anymore, especially those that rely on VPNs only.

2.Secure Web Gateway (SWG)

SWG protects web-based threats by filtering and scanning internet traffic from malware attacks, phishing attempts, and other threats. It can also secure entry for unauthorized websites or suspicious URLs and enforce web security policies.

3.Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

ZTNA is a security network that believes in zero trust and confirms every user and URL before giving clearance to the device. This strengthens security and reduces the chance of security breaches by requiring continuous authentication.

4.Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)
