The proxy server is a hardened and monitored device that provides controlled means of access between two dissimilar security zones. In case, a person wants to access a resource that is located in a dissimilar security zone, there needs to be a device or a connector that provides a secure link or a tunnel to access the resource. A proxy server can be used as a single traffic audit point or a means to manage user accounts.
