Large DoD customer - looking at 300,000+ users - and having trouble with sizing equipment. I think the WG5500 supports up-to 20,000 users which would mean I need 15xWG5500's or maybe the Content Security Blade Server helps here? Curious what are the differences in throughput and supported # of users.
This question has been moved from 'Best Practices in Security protection' to 'Web Gateway' in Email & Web Security.
There was a similar question asked in late 2010 - see https://community.mcafee.com/message/166409#166409
where the reply stated
the blade is intented to be deployed at huge sites
- which may apply to your DoD customer.
Someone who knows about these things should see this and (hopefully) give you an answer.Message was edited by: Hayton on 11/10/12 02:01:36 IST
please get in touch with a local sales representative. They can explain the best options for this requirement, since they have the experience from similar customers and expertise to make a proper assumption of what is required.
