Most valuable features are content filtering and monitoring.
Ease of updating the latest hotfixes and patches on the appliance.
Transparent Mode: Since we have multiple sites and roaming users, it has helped us in deploying the proxy to users without having to push any configurations to end users.
Ability to send decrypted traffic to other security solutions for inspection.
Real-time category protection.
We cannot automate the product since the IP address can only be assigned after acquisition of the serial number.
It lacks deployment over multiple platforms and integration with SDN architecture.
Ease of use could be improved.
There are several issues with the product. Version 8.4 can only be managed with a CLI, they removed the nice GUI interface from version 8.1. The load-balancing needs massive improvements. The incident lists don’t sync between appliances, they need to be manually edited for each one.
Improve detailed guidelines to deploy the transparent proxy to Firefox users.
Security of browsing.
The reporting could be improved.
Database synchronization failures
Allow for faster exemption of websites or the ability to reclassify websites.
The documentation is almost too much, it could be laid out in an easier to understand.
