SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - January 24, 2017) - EdgeWave, Inc.® (www.edgewave.com), a cybersecurity firm based in La Jolla, California, announced today the release of EdgeWave iPrism™ Secure Web Gateway 8.1. This release is focused on delivering enhanced security and deeper, more granular policy control and management for enterprises.

According to Verizon's 2016 Data Breach Incident Report (DBIR), web application attacks and unauthorized data transfer continue to be the most widespread types of data loss1. With the rapid adoption of cloud-based web applications, organizations are at risk from even more web based threats. With EdgeWave iPrism Secure Web Gateway 8.1, enterprises get a set-it and forget-it yet powerful web security solution, providing improved security features, policy management, reporting, and visibility -- all critical to ultimate web protection.

"EdgeWave iPrism has undergone an incredible re-architecture that emphasizes its already comprehensive, advanced URL filtering and malware protection," said Bob Crowe, Vice President of Engineering. "With this release, we're delivering enhancements that improve the usability, performance and business value of the product. Our newly redesigned reporting system, additional TLS/SSL enhancements, and proactive exception handling provide enterprises more granularity in their policy management, application and reporting."
