Question

Does the Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) support ICAP?

The ICAP protocol is designed to allow web gateway proxies, like the CIsco Web Security Appliance (WSA), to talk to external scanning engines. Starting with AsyncOS for Web 6.0, the S-Series supports using ICAP to scan outbound web content for data-loss prevention, using products such as RSA DLP Network.

For inbound content, the S-Series performs all content scanning using on-device engines.
