Affordable and effective cloud computing Internet Security
StarHub takes no chances when it comes to protecting your business from costly cyber threats. That’s why we’ve teamed up with industry-leading Zscaler to provide you with top-notch, leading-edge StarHub Web Security service on the cloud computing platform. Your business enjoys the highest level of protection against known and zero-day threats even before they reach your network. And you don’t even have to go through the hassle of purchasing, installing and maintaining costly security products.
Cutting-edge cloud security at minimal cost
StarHub Web Security (SWS) saves your business the cost of acquiring, deploying and maintaining expensive on-premise web security products Highly customisable, our service enables your IT administrators and security analysts to easily define your corporate security controls and compliance policies. Leveraging on the industry-leading Zscaler global infrastructure, all Singapore traffic is routed to the local data center housed within StarHub’s own network for enhanced performance. SWS scans the web pages and delivers clean traffic for a hassle-free Internet experience.
Simple and Comprehensive Management & Reporting
SWS reduces the cost of web log retention and high-speed retrieval.
It provides a flexible and powerful system capable of viewing the broad trends and traffic patterns of Internet activity – as well as drill down to specific events – to manage new policies and forecast Internet bandwidth requirements.
Advanced Features for Web 2.0 Activities
Manage access to Web applications
SWS allows you to create flexible and granular web access policies by action, location and group. For example, you may choose to allow selected Webmail applications, but block users from attaching files – a source of data leakage.
Using Dynamic Content Classification (DCC) Technology, you can opt to cut bandwidth costs by preventing access to audio and video streaming and eliminate the security risks of embedded malware.
SWS also enables you to control bandwidth by different HTTP web applications. For example, you may decide that financial applications such as NetSuite.com should be allocated to a minimum of 10% and a maximum of 50% of the network bandwidth.
To-the-minute threat protection
SWS inspects all inbound and outbound web traffic to detect newer threats, such as botnets, cross site scripts and malicious active content. With our global network, we can detect attacks in any part of the world and update threat protection measures in real-time.
100% up time, across the globe
In the event of failure in any gateway, the next geographically adjacent gateway will pick up its traffic, ensuring almost 100% up-times. This means that traveling executives who usually experience high latency can logon to the nearest data centre for security protection. All subsystems of SWS infrastructure have a proper redundancy and disaster recovery plan, ensuring consistent service across the globe.
Leveraging the Zscaler global infrastructure
The entire Internet bound Web traffic is scanned and policies are applied by the closest of over 50 “in-the-cloud” data centers powered by Zscaler. All Singapore traffic is routed to the local data center housed within StarHub’s own network for enhanced performance. Based on your organisation’s policy, traffic is blocked, throttled, or allowed to access the Internet. SWS scans the web pages and delivers clean traffic for a hassle-free Internet experience.
Seamlessly integrated with LDAP/PAD for authentication.
Global policies are centrally defined for all users from administrator web portal.
Al logs and reports are accessible via the admin web interface in real-time.
