Content Gateway is the web proxy component of Forcepoint™ Web Security.
Content Gateway performs advanced content analysis precisely when it is needed—as the content flows through the proxy. The results of analysis are used by Forcepoint Web Security to protect you from malicious content and apply your Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). This on-demand analysis protects users and networks at the same time that it makes rapidly changing websites safe for your organization and users. Advanced analysis may be applied to HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP channels.
The precise application of advanced analysis is configured by the administrator for each Forcepoint Web Security deployment.
Content Gateway can also be configured to function as a high-performance web proxy cache that caches frequently accessed information at the edge of the network. This brings content physically closer to end users for faster delivery and reduced bandwidth usage.
Content Gateway can also be deployed as the web proxy component of Forcepoint DLP (absent Web Security). A core version of Content Gateway is included in Forcepoint DLP Network licenses. Known as Forcepoint DLP Web Content Gateway, this core version is managed through Content Gateway and Forcepoint DLP managers, and allows Content Gateway to block traffic that matches the Forcepoint DLP web policies. Note that some features of Content Gateway are available only when Content Gateway is deployed with Forcepoint Web Security, and not in a standalone deployment with Forcepoint DLP Network. Those features are marked accordingly.
Content Gateway can be deployed as described in Content Gateway deployment options.
