Future Of Proxy Server's

The proxy server as stand-alone product is an endangered species. Most of the products in the current marketplace that fit this description (e.g., Proxy-Pro, Trumpet FireSock, and eServ) are pitched at small network environments running older operating systems, like Windows 95 and 98.

In its place, we'll continue to see software firewalls expand their breadth to include the kind of content filtering, caching, and authentication that was traditionally the role of the proxy server.

The proxy has shape-shifted to prevent extinction, merging into suites that regulate the border between internal and external networks.
