Proxy Chaining from a MWG to a cloud based solution

We are looking at incorporating a new company into our domain. They use a different content filtering tool (for the moment ;-). What is the best way to implement Proxy Chaining (we use on premise appliances) with a cloud hosted solution.

Re: Proxy Chaining from a MWG to a cloud based solution

Hi Tmj,

MWG has next hop proxy events which can be setup in the rules to forward traffic. The rule might look like something below.

    

If you're using a cloud proxy, I would wonder how they are authenticating as that might be an issue if they require more complex methods. If they're simply identifying you based on your public IP, then you shouldnt have any issues forwarding traffic.

Best Regards,

Jon

Can I choose which hosts are affected by the next hop proxy rules? For example, hosts from subnet A will be subjected to this rule while hosts from subnet B will not? Thanks.
