AV-TEST Comparative Cloud Gateway Review
AV-TEST performed a comparative review of McAfee Web Protection in the cloud and Websense Cloud Security 2014. Both products offer network protection in the cloud by providing a cloud proxy service, where all web traffic of the customer is examined before being delivered to its user. The products were tested against a set of malicious URLs with zero-day malware to determine their performance against the latest threats on the web. AV-TEST also analyzed the web application control capabilities of the products. Web application control helps organizations to restrict their employees’ usage of particular features in web applications.
