McAfee Web Gateway 7.1.6 is available for download and update
McAfee Web Gateway has great success by satisfying our customer needs due to its unmatched feature set, including GTI enabled Gateway Antimalware, GTI enabled URL Filtering, SSL Scanning, and flexible deployment options.
With the release of McAfee Web Gateway 7.1.6. we are going a step further an provide the ability to identify Web 2.0 applications and their sub functions as easy as doing URL Filtering. Web Gateway uses the AppPrism database as a comprehensive list of over 700 Web 2.0 applications and sub functions grouped into 28 categories.
In this release Web Gateway introduces External Lists, which provide McAfee Web Gateway with the capability to consume policy list data hosted on servers outside of McAfee Web Gateway and to dynamically query these resources at runtime while processing the policy for a transaction. External Lists allow customers to use web services, locally stored files and LDAP servers as resources for policy data.
As a powerful feature behind the scenes, McAfee Web Gateway is now equipped with a REST interface, which provides a XML based API to connect other systems to Web Gateway. These APIs allow control of Web Gateway functionality, such as list creation, list deletion, list modification, log file access, log file operations, system control, etc. By utilizing this API, a customer can control Web Gateway from within other systems, such as policy automation tools, help desk system, etc. and can create additional functionality around Web Gateway if needed.
As new hardware platform, McAfee Web Gateway 7.1.6 now supports the Content Security Blade Server as hardware platform and allows installation of the MWG image through the built-in ILO interface .
