Cisco Web Security Appliance Valuable Features

Web Security Appliance is a proxy and I have gotten active with the open-source proxy. If I want a feature that is not present, most of the database updates and filters are good. Our clients use Cisco Palace which is a very big database that is very quickly updated. It also has high availability. These kinds of solutions impact the user experience. If you have an issue with the proxy not responding, you have to install or activate new does in order to reestablish the connections for the customer. View full review »

This appliance gives me good visibility in the userbase and their activities. I can see what they are using, which websites they are browsing, a history for each user, and how much bandwidth they have utilized. It integrates well into the Cisco environment. View full review »

The Gateway is an advantage that I can see in Cisco. The WCCP is good at delivering HTTP and HTTPS traffic. Before this ping forwarding was a problem for us. This solution offers categorization for YouTube and other specific applications from Facebook to WhatsApp, which can be controlled whether it's on mobile or PC. You can partition your IPs based on scoring from Cisco Cloud. There is a variety of options for integration with other products for authentication and authorization of users. You can control everything through policy. View full review »
