Having its own proxy engine which is far better then ISA Bluecoat doesn't support Isa integration. Although you can replace the Isa with Bluecoat, if you need to use Isa you can employ both of the solutions by using forwarding proxy configuration.

Websense is still supporting Isa plug in (and in version 7.0 websense also utilizes Inktomi proxy engine like Bluecoat)

On the other hand, i heard of webwasher supporting Isa plugin that can be a good alternative.

To decrease complexity and ease of management i recommend using single product. Also i recommend you considering filtering HTTPS traffic option which is available in most of the enterprise prodcuts.

I am after some experience in web content filetring solutions that are
a ISA proxy snap in type application, as Surfcontrol was.

I know that Websense have purchased Surfcontrol, but I am wondering if
they offer a snap-in type solution? I am also wondering if Bluecoast
or Clearswift offer a ISA proxy snap-in solution?

Any info is appreciated.
