Secure Web Gateway

FaceTime Communications has announced the release of the Unified Security Gateway (USG) 3.0, the first Secure Web gateway to combine content monitoring, management and security of Web 2.0 applications such as social networking, instant messaging, and Unified Communications, with URL filtering, malware and Web antivirus protection.

Traditional security tools, such as firewalls and URL filters are bypassed by the thousands of applications, such as streaming audio and video, file sharing and collaboration tools, which are capable of hopping from port to port, using encryption and non-standard protocols, and tunneling over HTTP.

USG 3.0 provides granular control of not only Web sites and applications but also the content posted to blogs, wikis, webmail and social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
