About this release

McAfee® Web Gateway (Web Gateway) 7.8.2.2 is provided as a controlled release. It is an update that resolves issues present in previous versions.

End of Helix proxy support

The Helix proxy is a third-party proxy for handling real-time streaming data. Support of this proxy on Web Gateway ended in December 2017.

Accordingly, the first product versions that did no longer support this proxy were 7.6.2.18, 7.7.2.7, and 7.8.0.2.

This information was, however, not included in the documentation at the time when these product versions were released.
