What is a web security solution?

Web security consists of each action or tool adopted to prevent information from being exposed or prone to attack by cybercriminals. Those measures also serve to protect users, such as ecommerce customers and blog readers, and even the host.

This category is seeking solutions that allows users to monitor web usage, even for on-premises gateways. A simplified interface to manage centralized and unified policies for both cloud-based and on-premises deployment instances.

Web security solutions include a range of technologies and practices such as firewalls, intrusion prevention systems (IPS), web application firewalls (WAF), SSL/TLS certificates, authentication and access control, content filtering, and vulnerability scanning.
