backup proxy with McAfee Web Gateway


I'm using ISA as proxy. I need solution backup for the proxy. Can I deploy the McAfee Web Gateway is as primary proxy and ISA is as standby proxy for redundant? Please tell me can I do this?

Thanks and Regards,

Truong Hoang Huy

Re: backup proxy with McAfee Web Gateway


as we don't supply any interoperability with ISA directly this would be a question in traffic routing etc. You could also think about using an external loadbalancer to fullfill this taks. Generally I would suggest to use an active and a warm/hot standy for MWG. Why not having two MWGs in HA and in case one fails, it will automaticall only use the remaining one?
