Secure Gateway Service features

Fast and simple

Encryption and authentication

All communication with Secure Gateway is easily configurable to provide TLS encryption and mutual authentication.

Resource monitoring

Monitor all your gateways from the Secure Gateway Dashboard or monitor individual gateways from the Secure Gateway client.

Access control list

Simple access management controls are available from the Secure Gateway Client to allow or deny access on a per resource basis to prevent any unauthorized access.
