PALO ALTO, Calif., June 20, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Broadcom Inc. (NASDAQ: AVGO) today announced its Symantec Cloud Secure Web Gateway (SWG) solution received Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP®) authorization, further expanding Broadcom's portfolio of FedRAMP authorized solutions for the U.S. sector. Symantec Cloud SWG delivers comprehensive, cloud-hosted security for U.S. federal agencies adopting a Security Service Edge (SSE) architecture. The solution enables U.S. federal agencies to cost-effectively migrate security services from on-premises data centers to cloud-native services without sacrificing security or designing new policy and workflows.

This FedRAMP authorized service is available as part of Symantec Gov Cloud – Web Protection to deliver one solution with flexible deployment options. Many federal agencies still have requirements to support on-premises security environments as they migrate to the cloud. Gov Cloud – Web Protection uniquely provides cloud-hosted security while also supporting full licensing of Symantec’s network security solutions. Customers can choose to deploy security components on-premises or use the cloud. Gov Cloud – Web Protection includes market-leading Symantec Secure Web Gateway, Reverse Proxy, Deep Content Inspection, Management Center and Cloud Reporting, Intelligence Services for application visibility and control, and Full-Traffic Decryption.
