Proxy deployments today have outlived their usefulness and practicality. They have joined a long list of legacy products, providing limited security functionality against today’s advanced threats. There was a time when proxies fulfilled a need traditional firewalls could not meet - visibility into web traffic starting with categorization of HTTP and later HTTPS traffic. However, little or no emphasis was put on traffic and the vast number of applications using other avenues to access corporate networks. Proxy vendors still over-emphasize the importance of HTTP and HTTPS traffic while downplaying the role of applications using other entry points in cyber attacks.
In this webinar, we highlight the shortcomings of proxies, and showcase how a next-generation security platform can provide faster, simpler and more comprehensive security.
