It is a very flexible solution and easy to set up. There is a lot of knowledge on McAfee's user portal to assist with deployment or configuration options. The policy icould be tweeked to accomodate all deployment scenarios.
MWG is very flexible solution. Take the time to review depoloyment scenarious and differnet configuration before deployment. There are plenty of free resources on the McAfee web sites. This way when you configure the policy you would have a pretty good understanding of the way the tool works and the different set ups available. Outline the scope of the deployment and see if there will be other areas that you would like to expand in the future. Take that into account when designing the policy.
The flexibility to design the policy to match exactly what we want. Also the reporting and data that you can get from the tool when integriated with the Security Reporter are very good.
Some of the missing options in cloud
Improve their support on hold times. Provide some of the advcne features from the MWG to their cloud offering
Probably would have hired a consultant to help us design the policy and processes for our environment. Also purchased platinum support from the start.
the on call wait time when no ton platinum support sometimes could be long

Extremely smooth migration. Easy to reflect all business policies in the rule set. Supports all the different auth. methods we required. Integration with all the existing Infrastructure was a breeze. A great step forward for our ability to reflect requirements from the Security/Risk department on the Web Gateway. Simplified administration in a global cluster with role based access, much quicker to get new solutions/improvements out to the user.
As first time McAfee Web Gateway user you might want to consider to get some initial help with the build of the policy. It is fairly simple, but to unlock the full potential of the rule set this might help.
Stable, extremely flexible. One single platform for the gateway/management filtering etc. Virtual or on dedicated HW.
Authentication for CLI access could be better integrated even though it is hardly used.
Bolder migration as there where no kinks to work out during migration like we were used to with other vendors before.
Extreamly flexible, very wide support for standards, protocols, authentication methods, management, deplyoment etc.
Very responsive support, with good trouble shooting skills and tools.

The product works, but at this point the technology platform needs to be refreshed.
Engage with the vendor more closely.
