I'm new into Mcafee Web Gateway Cloud Services. I have asked to evaluate Mcafee Web Gateway Cloud Services for my organization.
I have the following questions, could someone in this group please explain.
1.We have a cloud which has 500+ VMs. We want all the outbound traffic goes via proxy. We are planning to use the proxy from McAfee WGCS for this purpose.
My questions now:
Is it required/mandatory to install client proxy software in all 500+ VMs to use the McAfee WGCS? If "No",
2. We got the trial account in McAfee epo for WGCS.
Got the below web proxy url: c11853xxxx6.saasprotection.com
Could you please explain how to use this proxy URL in 500+ VMs in our cloud.
3. I would like to understand the architecture and communication flow of McAfee Web Proxy Cloud Services. Any document links for this would be more helpful.
Thanks in advance.
one option to send traffic to the Cloud proxy is to use McAfee Client Proxy. But there are also other solutions like to configure a Site-to-Cloud VPN.
This way you can configure your firewall or router to send traffic to the cloud proxy. Then there is no need to install MCP on all systems.
You can find some more documantation about the cloud service here:
Also found the following options in the document for WGCS without MCP (McAfee Client Proxy Software).
1. IP Range Authentication
- I have tested this option. It works as expected. Only concern is, All the host should have permanent IP.
2. SAML Authentication
- Need to test this option
3. IP Sec.
