WGCS like a ICAP Client

Hello All,

Do you have experience in integration WGCS with 3th part Vendors? It could be e.g. ICAP. I am also considering running vATD in the cloud (Azure) and sending samples there.

Has anyone encountered such functionality?

Re: WGCS like a ICAP Client

Internet Content Adaptation Protocol (ICAP) is a simple, lightweight open protocol. It is typically used to transport HTTP messages between the proxy and the devices that provide antimalware support and data leak prevention services. ICAP has created a standard interface for content adaptation to allow greater flexibility in content distribution and for providing a value-added service. An ICAP client forwards HTTP requests and responses to an ICAP server for processing. The ICAP server performs some transformation on requests and sends back responses to the ICAP client, with appropriate action on the request or response.

Re: WGCS like a ICAP Client


I know very well how ICAP (client / server) works. The problem is that the client currently uses MWG (locally). In addition, it sends ICAP queries to a third-party product, which is also locally located. And in addition, NX (FireEye) is behind the MWG
We are currently planning to migrate to WGCS and we want to somehow provide the functionalities I am writing about.
