The diagram above illustrates the traditional approach to building
secure extranets. Typically, many distinct and complex multi-vendor
solutions must be integrated by a team of technical experts.
These solutions often require the installation and integration
of server agents onto heterogeneous and fragile back office
systems. Use of remote client (VPN) software requires installation
as well as user training and support, leading to significant
The modular architecture of the SafeWeb SEA lets companies
implement a fully functional secure extranet in less than an
hour. The result is greater security at lower cost, with less
complexity and delay.
SafeWeb achieves this dramatic simplification of secure remote
access with its award-winning application-level reverse proxy
technology. This same proxy engine powered the world's most
popular online privacy service, securing over 2 billion transactions
globally. SafeWeb was the first security technology company
to receive an investment from In-Q-Tel, the CIA's venture fund.
In-Q-Tel was created to transfer best of breed security technology
into the Agency. The Voice of America also uses SafeWeb's proxy
and security technology to protect freedom of information online.
In building the SEA, SafeWeb has enhanced
its core proxy technology with a wide variety of enterprise
features such as authentication, access control, file sharing
and email access.
