I have been using [Avast Secure Web Gateway (SWG)] for a very long
time in my organization, it is very easy to use with having the interface
created on a very advanced module. Designed with much-modernized UI and dashboard
is very pleasing to use and to have the best experience on it.

For any form of company control on a larger scale where threats can have a very detrimental effect but not suited to SME scenarios was cost factor would be a key component and not require as much automation.

Cons

Avast SWG

  • The major drawback of using Avast secure web gateway that it sometimes slows down the system in blocking web threats.
  • Secondly, it is hard to set up the first time as it takes a lot of effort and time to completely integrate with the system to make it fully functional.
  • Starting scanning the web application and organizing network in the background which talks a lot of memory and slows down the other processes.
