Is it recommended to have SWG behind your NGFW?

@SWG and NGFW look similar but they are quite difference on layer & filter focus.
SWG are more for internal defence, and NGFW are more border defence.

Does having a SWG behind your NGFW really enhance your infrastructure security?

@Yes.

Thanks for your reply! Appreciate it!

It's still pretty confusing at times. Any good example for the purpose of SWG vs NGFW?
