Deploying an I Series Appliance | Forcepoint Web Security Cloud
This guide describes deploying an I Series appliance as part of your Forcepoint Web Security Cloud solution.
The I Series appliance is an add-on to Forcepoint Web Security Cloud, providing fast on-premises URL analysis and application/protocol detection for web traffic, along with centralized policy management and reporting capabilities in the cloud. When a policy indicates that a request requires additional analysis, it is transparently routed to the cloud, where cloud analytics are applied and policy is enforced.
You can choose to deploy an appliance for all of your web traffic, or as part of a larger solution that combines the different management options available. For example, you may wish to have an appliance on one site, but deploy the PAC file for end users on another site, and install a web endpoint client for roaming users.
For information on getting started with the cloud service, including details of other deployment options, see the Forcepoint Web Security Cloud - Getting Started Guide.
Once you have a cloud service account and have either received your I Series appliance or downloaded the appliance virtual image, you can deploy your appliance by completing the following tasks:
The Quick Start poster, which is packaged in the appliance shipping box, outlines these tasks for your hardware version and includes a section for writing down reference information during deployment.
Recommendations for an evaluation
During the initial stages of an evaluation, it is recommended that you configure all of your IP address ranges as trusted network sources, meaning that the appliance ignores all traffic. You can then test your deployment with a small number of clients before opening it up to all IP addresses and ignoring only those addresses whose traffic you do not want to be analyzed (for example, servers that receive Microsoft and antivirus updates).
