Secure web access

Today, the risk of infection by viruses, phishing and the like is greater on the web than by email. Even supposedly trustworthy websites can be compromised, and accessing a website even once on a PC can lead to infection of the whole company network (drive-by download). Our Swiss IT Security Deutschland solutions ensure secure web access.

Surf securely

A digital workplace without internet access is unthinkable today. But the web harbours a variety of hazards, from malware to phishing sites and content unsuitable for consumers.



Individual policy

Different policies can be implemented depending on the user group. For trainees, for example, youth protection may play an important role, whereas protection against malware is important for all employees.


Whether a secure proxy server or an integrated UTM firewall, we’ll find a solution that’s easy for you to integrate.

As part of our Managed Security Service, we manage numerous installations for our customers. Usually, we first determine what you need and then use our experience to fine tune this. In that sense, the products and services described here are only examples of our portfolio. We welcome questions! We provide our Managed Security Services on-site with the customer or at our highly secure computing centre with professional operating standards and agreed service levels (SLA).
A proxy server can be used as a standard element of network security. It acts as an intermediary between the user/the user’s browser and the unsecured internet. The user is made “invisible” behind the proxy. The Swiss IT Security Deutschland proxy allows various additional security services to be set up, for example access restrictions, a URL filter, or virus protection. The proxy then becomes a security gateway. Modern firewall systems either have an integrated proxy or else protection can be realised by other means.
It’s easy to stumble over virus-infected web servers while browsing and downloading online, even if the content otherwise appears reputable. That’s why this communication channel must also be freed of viruses, trojans and other malware. As always, protection should be interposed as far in front of one’s own end systems as possible and must be maintained in top condition through professional management.
Instead of only detecting and defending against malware during the loading process (see virus protection above), it’s also possible to classify online targets (websites) as harmless/harmful, etc. A URL filter does this: it blocks access to unwanted content immediately. This could be harmful websites or compliance violations by employees in their internet use. The Cyren URL filter used by Swiss IT Security Deutschland has particularly high detection accuracy and real-time protection. It even categorises deep links on lower-level web subpages.
A next-generation firewall makes it possible to control unwanted applications, e.g. to prohibit Skype, allow Teams, but prohibit ports.
User-dependent authentication allows or blocks functionalities depending on membership in a group with the same rights. The required information is verified through the lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP), e.g. through the Microsoft Active Directory Service. Credentials can also be linked to a single sign-on (SSO) agent as a convenient way to pass on rights. User-dependent control is especially essential if different user groups are working over the same devices (e.g. terminal servers).
