Symantec Web Gateway

Has anyone ever set this product up?

We have a license for this with our agreement, but have never used it in the past. Does any one know of a good best practice guide for this? How about sizing for the amount of network traffic? How does it compare with Blue Coat, or other players in the space?

Symantec web gateway is an excellent product for URL filtering in my environment it does a excellent job.

A minor flaw would be if you need a comprehensive log of symantec webgateway.

I have not used blue coat so i would not be able to give you a comparsion of both.

As far as my knowledge is conserned Symantec webgateway would be able to show you the total amount of data used not for an individual system.


Please go through the implementation guide to know better on how to setup the product
