About JavaScript Object Notation Data

Data that is encoded in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format can be read, modified, and created on Web Gateway.

JavaScript Object Notation is a text-based data-interchange format. It can be read easily by JavaScript, but is not tied to using this language. The notation is used for communication with interactive websites, as well as with NoSQL and document-oriented databases, for example, MongoDB or Couch DB.

JSON-based programming interfaces exist for use in well-known social networks, such as Facebook or Twitter.

On Web Gateway, JSON data is used, for example, in scanning reports that are provided by McAfee Advanced Threat Defense (Advanced Threat Defense). Lists that are retrieved form external sources and processed on Web Gateway can also be in JSON data format.
