Difference in product

Except for the e-mail portion what would the difference be between McAfee web and Email security Appliance and McAfee Web-gateway Appliance?

    This community page solely in Japanese. Therefore, if you want to raise a question in English, please go to the following Email and Web Security page. Appropriate people can answer to your question:


    (McAfee Community - Email and Web Security)


    Answering to your question, McAfee Web Gateway is specialized to scan web-related protocol such as http/https/icap/ftp, is Not scanning smtp protocol. If you want a device for anti-virus/ anti-spam through smtp, you may want to implement McAfee Email Gateway or McAfee Email and Web Security (Important note is that the support period of McAfee Email and Web Gateway would be limited until 2017, therefore choosing EWS is not so good at this point).
