Can My Barracuda Web Filter Do SSL Inspection on Proxy and Transparent Traffic at the Same Time?

  • Type: Knowledgebase
  • Date changed: 4 years ago
SOLUTION #00007250

SCOPE:
Barracuda Web Filters, Firmware 7.1 and higher

ANSWER:
No. Unfortunately at this time, Web Filters with SSL Inspection can only apply to either proxied traffic OR inline traffic. It cannot be applied to both at the same time. Therefore if you are applying SSL Inspection to Proxy traffic, you may wish to proxy all of your web traffic (via browser proxy settings) to make sure that all of it is inspected.
If you need to enable SSL Inspection on both proxy and transparent traffic, purchasing a second web filter solution will allow you to use one device to filter inline traffic and the second to filter proxy traffic. Barracuda networks recommends employing one Web Filter for Chromebooks, and another for your desktop network. Barracuda Networks load balancers can be used in this environment to enable multiple Web Filters to work together in tandem. If you are interested in this configuration, please contact your Barracuda Networks Territory Manager at https://www.barracuda.com/purchase/salesrep, or you can email us at sales@barracuda.com, or call (408)342-5400.
If you need help configuring your system to take best advantage of SSL Inspection, please contact Barracuda Networks Technical Support.
