Implementing Websense in network with PIX 515

We are in the process of installing a Websense server in our network and wanted to ask for opinions/recommendations on the location that would be best for installing a Websense server. Should it by on the inside of my firewall or in the DMZ? From what I have been reading on the documentation so far it does not look like there is really a need to put it in the DMZ.

Personally, I would stick it in the internal side. I like to stick resources that are going to be used by outside the network (WWW server, SMTP, etc) in the DMZ.

HI,

If only people from your inside network are going to use websense, then I would say Inside network. Put it on the DMZ if other branches needs to be filtered by websense.

Hope it helped :)

You want the Websense on the same segment wherever you place it to minimize traffic.
