WAN Optimization, Web Cache, Explicit Proxy, and WCCP
Welcome and thank you for selecting Fortinet products for your network protection.
You can use FortiGate WAN optimization and web caching to improve performance and
security of traffic passing between locations on your wide area network (WAN) or from the
Internet to your web servers. You can also use the FortiGate unit as an explicit web proxy
server. If your FortiGate unit supports web caching, you can also add web caching to the
web proxy server.
This document describes how FortiGate WAN optimization, web caching, and web proxy
work and also describes how to configure these features.
