Cisco content engine should do the trick for you. Go through the URL:

The cache engine itself will not do NAT for the network, only serve as a Proxy.

If you have Cisco Routers, you should be able to use WCCP to transparently forward all Web traffic to the Cache Engine.

Have a look at this link for details:

Well, in such a case, why people prefer Bluecoat over a Cisco Content Engine..

Is there a huge price difference..?

Of course, the Cisco CE can do more job than a proxy, i guess, like it can act as CDN device as well..

My question is, if the requirement is only to do a Proxy job, is it ok, to buy a CE box than a bluecoat appliance?

Btw, I am proposing SE612-IPROXY-K9 for just Proxy purposes..

Am I losing anything by doing this..? instead of choosing Bluecoat..?
