Our primary use case is deploying the product as a web security gateway in conjunction with the Symantec client.

It is a web-based proxy - it's a cloud proxy. Its use case is mostly for customers who need URL filtering, who need a proxy for blocking access to different websites, and ICAP if the proxy supports it. The functionality is exactly the as same as ProxySG, Symantec's Blue Coat on-prem proxy, but the benefit is that the infrastructure doesn't have to be managed. You don't have to patch it, you don't have to do anything.

We manage it through the cloud and it's deployed that way too. Our primary use case is for our signature-based tool for antivirus. It adds value.

Our company is both a partner and a reseller of this solution. The primary use case is for endpoint security for our customers. We have lots of security devices, but for the host itself or PCs in general, this is the best solution. Especially since we have a sizeable customer base.
