People,

Can anyone please suggest me which of the following server should I implement to secure the web traffic of our internet connection ?

Because I have subscribed to Symantec Protection Suite 4 I have access to the following servers through Fileconnect website:

Symantec_Web_Gateway_5.1_8450_appliance_EN.part1.exe
Symantec_Web_Gateway_5.1_8450_appliance_EN.part2.rar
Symantec_Web_Gateway_5.1_8490_appliance_EN.part1.exe
Symantec_Web_Gateway_5.1_8490_appliance_EN.part2.rar
Symantec_Web_Gateway_5.1_vmimage_EN.part1.exe
Symantec_Web_Gateway_5.1_vmimage_EN.part2.rar
 
Any kind of help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks

You need the VM Image downloads (the 84X0 marked options are only if you have the physical SWG appliance).

As these would be virtual, then you're loking at either "proxy only" or "span/tap" modes.

Cool, so in this case I can just deploy the following server:

Symantec_Web_Gateway_5.1_vmimage_EN.part1.exe
Symantec_Web_Gateway_5.1_vmimage_EN.part2.rar
 
Which should behave the same as Symantec.Cloud service ?

Kind regards,

None will behave the same as the Symantec.Cloud service I'm afraid, as they are entirely different products with different backgrounds.

As a bit of background, the Symantec.Cloud service does all the filtering up in their cloud (sometimes with an onsite proxy to provide localised auth).

The SWG however, does all filtering onbox.

Given the questions you have posted about SMSMSE as well, you might be better off getting in contact with Symantec themselves directly, or giving a Symantec Partner (like ourselves) who is familiar with the Symantec Protection Suite as a whole, a call.

Cool, thanks for the clarification.

Somehow when my company switch over to the Symantec.Cloud the internet is running slower than before.

hence I'd like to bring it in house by utilizing what we have on our licensing scheme paid annually.
