Is a proxy server useful on a network behind a Cisco PIX
I manage 4 NOC sites and each one's traffic is filter by a Cisco PIX 515.
My boss has insisted that I set up a proxy server at each NOC. From my understanding of a proxy server it would be useless and possible harmful. Harmful in that it would slow down the traffic to or from the NOC. There are no users in the NOCs only servers that are accessed remotely for administration and by customer applications that need data processed and returned.
Would a proxy server be of any benefit? If so how?
