Hybrid solution A hybrid solution that extends security to web usage when it happens outside your local network can be implemented on Web Gateway. McAfee Web Gateway Cloud Service runs in an integrated process with Web Gateway to enable this solution. The following are key concepts of this solution: Hybrid policy — The solution allows you to apply the same policy to web usage inside and outside your local network. Hybrid synchronization — The policy is synchronized to ensure it is consistently applied to both kinds of web usage. A legacy solution is also available that allows you to synchronize several policy elements, such as host names, IP addresses, and URL categories. Working with the hybrid solution Working with the hybrid solution allows you to ensure web security under the same policy for users inside and outside your local network. Restrictions of the hybrid solutionBefore configuring a hybrid policy on Web Gateway, learn the configurations that cannot be used on McAfee Web Gateway Cloud Service. Configure a hybrid solution To configure a hybrid solution that lets a Web Gateway security policy also apply on McAfee Web Gateway Cloud Service, complete the following high-level steps. Configure settings for the hybrid solution To configure settings for the hybrid solution, complete the following steps. Select a rule set for the hybrid solution To select a rule set for the hybrid solution, select it on the user interface of Web Gateway and enable the appropriate option. Perform synchronization manually To synchronize the web security policy for a hybrid solution manually, complete the following steps. You can perform manual synchronization regardless of the configured synchronization interval. Legacy hybrid solution A legacy solution is available for synchronizing web security policies to protect web access of your users when they are working on-premise and in-the-cloud.
