I am a reseller and work with clients to set up web and email security. Most of my clients focus on web security where they connect with proxy servers to view security items that relate to antivirus, threat defense, and anti-malware. The solution is used to enforce security when accessing the web and as a transparent proxy for smartphones and tablets.

Our company works solely on government projects. Hyperconverged infrastructure is one portion of our use case for Web Security Appliance because it's a bundled solution that includes cyber security, network, the passive component, storage, and HCI. We are based in India and we have over 10,000 employees. We are a Cisco gold partner and I am deputy general manager of presales.

Cisco Web Security Appliance is used for security, proxying, and obviously proxy caching to save circuit bandwidth, but it is also used for security features because it is integrated into our ecosystem.

We are just using the solution for internal purposes. When we need to browse the internet, our staff will either be allowed or refused access to the internet. All of the internet is accessed via the server.

We primarily use the solution for security and controlled internet access. We just finished deploying one for one of our clients that actually bought both devices. That was just before COVID that we implemented it, so we just finished it now.

We use the solution basically for web filtering. Being an organization distributed across multiple locations, DNS security is handled centrally with the help of a Cisco Umbrella.

We primarily use the solution to verify the identity of users that are connecting to the network. It's used to check the compliance of their systems before they are able to connect.
