What is Secure Gateway Service?

The Secure Gateway Service provides a quick, easy, and secure solution to connect anything to anything. The solution provides a persistent connection between on-premises or third-party cloud environments and the IBM Cloud®.

Secure Gateway Service features

Fast and simple

Quickly set up gateways to connect your environments, manage the mapping between your local and remote destinations, and monitor all of your traffic.

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 Service dashboard or monitor individual gateways from the Secure Gateway Service client.

Access control list

Simple access management controls are available from the Secure Gateway Service client to allow or deny access on a per resource basis to prevent any unauthorized access. This list will automatically synchronize to any client connected to the same gateway.

Load balancing and high availability

With Professional and Enterprise plans, you can connect multiple instances of the Secure Gateway Service client to your gateway to automatically use built-in connection load balancing and connection fail-over if a client instance go down.

Next-level integration

Secure Gateway Service is just one part of a modern approach to integration. It’s now in an IBM Cloud Pak with everything else you need to round out your capabilities.
