We use it as our Webproxy to prorect the surf traffic from malware and integrate it with a third party threat emulation solution. We chose it, since we used to use the precssor product Webwasher and the competitors were not so much better to decide for a migration to a totally new product.
  • Performance
  • UI
  • Malware detection
  • reporting
It is well suited if you need an high performance proxy. it is not well suited if you need extented reporting or a very high detection rate.
  • Performance
  • Security
  • Visibility
The configuration of the Cisco Secure Web Appliance of even worse than the one of Skyhigh's Secure Web Gateway. The detecction rate was slightly higher but the visibility worse.

We were using Firewall based URL filtering options for our company but faced many challenge like throughput issue, false positives. Then we moved to McAfee Web Gateway and we are able to achieve our required use cases with it. It has the best filtering and security to the users even if they are working from out side of the office as our all traffic routed through it.
  • Unified Architecture
  • Reporting
  • Hybrid Deployment
  • SSL Inspection
  • Customer Support
  • Documentation not available
  • Higher Cost
McAfee Web Gateway is best suited for all types of organizations if they wan to achieve the security for their users as it has the large intel database as well. The best part is its flexible hybrid deployment methods- it can be deployed on premises (hardware and virtual), in the cloud, or both for the high availability.
  • SSL traffic inspection
  • DLP
  • Anti- Malware
  • Inbound and outbound both traffic protection
  • URL/ Content filtering
  • Protection available for both inside/outside office users
  • Sometimes slowness is faced by users
Kind of flexibility in Deployment and Customization which we get with McAfee Web Gateway was the driving factor we went with it and it has met our expectations. After implementing the McAfee Web Gateway, the count of the service desk tickets raised by users related to the web service issues have been decreased. And it has protected our office users and remote users as well.

McAfee Web Gateway is an excellent web proxy, with a granular level of configuration capability. Is also a complex system, which requires a significant time investment to learn. It's not a simple turn-key solution. We appreciate the support of the McAfee technicians. In conclusion, high-performance web security through an on-premises appliance.
  • Great malware protection.
  • Excellent sandboxing.
  • Great URL filtering.
  • Very good pre-defined policies.
  • Excellent high-performance web security.
  • Incredibly efficient application finding any threat.
  • The ransomware simulator does a pretty good job.
  • Email protection, malware, spyware, DDOS, BOT-ing, website filtering, spam filtering, and much more.
Provides a lot of general protection for my business PC, including spam and email filtering, as well as email protection. Internet protection at real-time is very effective. There is nothing negative I can say about McAfee Web Gateway. It's the best security software ever for small and big companies. Buy with trust.
  • Risk management
  • Improve compliance
  • Assure information security
We selected McAfee Web Gateway because is one of the best solutions from the market on the moment. The price is very good. Excellent integration with another solution from McAfee that we have implemented. The speed of the protection from my point of view is one of the best options available in the market today.

McAfee Web Gateway is used across our organization for web security. It enforces policies related to Internet access such as appropriate use, malware inspection and prevention of unwanted downloads.
  • Very flexible rule configuration for tiered access. With AD integration, easily allow Internet access based on groups.
  • SSL inspection of web content. URL categories can be exempted from inspection such as financial or health.
  • Customizable block pages. Allows you to place your policy statement on the block page as well as explanations for why a page is blocked.
  • Sometimes rule tracing is difficult to pinpoint errors.
  • HTML interface is in early stages. Both Java and HTML are available.
Web Gateway is well suited for medium to large enterprises. It is very flexible and customizable, but along with this comes some complexity.
  • An effective tool in enforcing Internet policies.
  • Adds a necessary layer of Internet security over and above UTM Firewall offerings.
Both had comparable feature sets with Web Gateway at lesser cost.
