Proxy chaining and forwarding allows traffic streams to pivot through additional third party systems for inspection. Proxy chaining is easily configured within iboss Cloud Platform using various header and data matching options.
The receiving third-party service can perform security functions to the data prior to that data reaching its final cloud destination.
The iboss Cloud Platform can natively forward traffic generated from users to any CASB system without complex coding or configuration. The logs can be sent in real-time so that they can be analyzed and enhanced by other CASB solutions to provide additional visibility and insight into cloud application use. Traffic is forwarded directly from the Platform to the CASB system without the need to deploy virtual appliances or external connectors. This ensures data streams in real-time to the CASB system for fast protection and visibility.
ICAP is an industry-standard protocol for passing files from one system to another for inspection. The iboss Cloud Platform fully supports the ICAP protocol so that any file inspected by the Platform can be forwarded to any other system for inspection and protection. The cloud will wait for the additional third-party system to make a determination on the file prior to passing the content along to its final destination. Selectively passing files through ICAP can also be achieved by highly extensible rules so that only files of interest are passed to the external system. ICAP is typically supported by external DLP systems as a standard way of receiving files for inspection making the iboss Cloud Platform an ideal choice for integration with third-party DLP platforms.
