Security+ Key Point
If you’re planning to take the Security+ exam, you might like to remember this key point.
A proxy server forwards requests for services from a client. It provides caching to improve performance and reduce Internet bandwidth usage. Transparent proxy servers accept and forward requests without modifying them. Nontransparent proxy servers use URL filters to restrict access to certain sites. Both types can log user activity.
This is one of the Remember This blocks from the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide. As a study habit, I encourage readers to repeat these key points to themselves as often as possible. The more you repeat the information, the more likely you are to remember it when you take the exam.
The CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide provides additional information needed to fully understand this key point.
Also, the full text of the top selling CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-501 Study Guide is available in the Full Security+ Course within an online course format.
