What is a proxy server?
A proxy server is a computer that acts as a medium between a Web browser (such as Internet Explorer) and the Internet. Proxy servers improve Web performance by storing replicas of web pages that are frequently used.
When a browser requests a Web page that is stored in a proxy server collection (its cache), the Web page is provided by a proxy server, which is faster than going to the Web. Proxy servers can also improve security by filtering out some Web content and malicious software. The famous agent software has Microsoft's ISA 2006 and Ccproxy.
The proxy server is mostly used by organizations and networks in the company. Typically, people who connect to the Internet from home do not use proxy servers.
