Buyer's Guide: 10 things to look for in a Secure Internet Gateway As networks become more decentralized and users connect directly to SaaS applications, security must also shift to the cloud. A new category of products is emerging to address these changes, the Secure Internet Gateway (SIG). A SIG provides safe access to the internet anywhere users go, even when they are off the VPN. Before you connect to any destination, a SIG acts as your secure onramp to the internet and provides the first line of defense and inspection. Regardless of where users are located or what they're trying to connect to, traffic goes through the SIG first. Once the traffic gets to the SIG cloud platform, there are different types of inspection and policy enforcement that can happen. As more security controls move to the cloud, a SIG provides a platform that future capabilities can be built upon. © 2018 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
