Hi Guys,

Can we have bandwidth control with Symantec Webgateway and also can we block specific micro web applications through Web Gateway like blocking only chat software on facebook side?

Thanks for quick response.... Any feedback for bandwidth control. I believe there is no such bandwidth control available in SWG. Please confirm the same.

NO,I think This facilty are available in SWG

Proxy and caching capability meets the needs of customers who:
  • Require proxy in network topology
  • Require an HTTP Cache for bandwidth savings

Thanks In Advance
