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.
