Using Shared Password

The shared password is the password that secures communication between Client Proxy and Web Gateway or Skyhigh Security WGCS. The shared password is sometimes called the shared secret.

Whether you are setting up Client Proxy in an on-premises, cloud-only, or hybrid deployment, one shared password secures communication across products and policies. Configuration details depend on the management platform.
