Several Middle Eastern Countries mandate that Service Providers use the SmartFilter database to prevent access to offensive sites. Some of them still use ProxySG. As the government requires that SmartFilter be used, these Service Providers cannot use SGOS 6.3.x because SmartFilter is no longer supported by Blue Coat. At this time the following countries require SmartFilter support

  • Saudi Arabia
  • Bahrain

Service Providers in these countries should not be upgraded to SGOS 6.3.x or higher.
