The extensive technological advancements such as cloud and mobility are considerably renovating the work patterns in organizations. In the recent years, businesses have progressively incorporated numerous technological developments such as cloud, mobility and social media which further leads to upsurge in the amount of data generated among organizations. This is evident from the extensive dependence of employees on the Internet and its usage patterns. Thus, the usage of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and removable media for accessing and transferring organizational data increases the susceptibility of data loss and breach. Thereby, this promotes the adoption of web gateway solutions among businesses across organizations.

The Secure Web Gateway (SWG) market is fast gaining traction principally due to the increasing malware threat, the rising demand among businesses for enhancing productivity through secure data transfer across mobile devices. In addition, the growing security concerns involved in organizational content access and travel across mobile devices further demands secure web solutions.

Today, enterprises are promptly implementing web security solutions to support flexible working among employees in a secure manner, as it provides the workforce with flexibility in working and thus enriches the productivity of the organizations. Further, the rising intensity and volume of cyber-attacks along with increasing propensity of mobile devices theft and loss is further enabling adoption of SWG for assisting secure data transfer across mobile devices and refraining from cyber-attacks.

Further, the adoption of SWG is restored due to surfacing of mandate standards related to security that needs to be adhered with, across various industry verticals such as HIPPA for healthcare and PCI DSS for BFSI as these solutions conform to certain specific guidelines and simplify secure data access and transfer across mobile devices. Hence, the surfacing of these solutions is further adding to the demand of SWG across the globe.

In today's security enabled era, the use of SWG solutions can be seen in nearly every sector of the market. The SWG market has gained significant traction in the recent years across all the major regions due to rise in cyber-attacks and unsolicited content from the web.

Increasing dependency on the Internet and escalating corporate espionage and other business related cyber-attacks are visibly driving the market for SWG. Industry verticals such as telecom and IT, BFSI, education, retail, and government are progressively deploying SWG solutions for better network optimization and security intelligence.

Moreover, the advent of SWG has changed the way organizations are now looking at security issues and malware threats.

Major companies, namely Websense, Blue Coat Systems, Barracuda Networks, and Sophos among various others are offering SWG solutions to clients that are highly vulnerable to attacks from the web. These companies provide specialized solutions to suit the client needs to the edge. The leaders in the SWG market are investing in acquisitions and new technologies to enrich their existing product portfolio and address the increasing demand across a wide range of SMBs and large enterprises. Even though, many users are not acquainted with this technology, SWG is projected to present an exciting prospect for users, irrespective of the location.
