For packet stream analysis you can do on-the-fly for both ...
If you want, for example, to check for viruses in attachments, you HAVE
TO use a proxy because the complete attachment needs to be saved
somewhere, unzipped, mangled by the antivirus and possibly write a
X-Antivirus:Checked header in the email. I'm not aware of products that
can do this on-the-fly, but feel free to change my mind :)

How about (tongue-in-cheek, sort-of):
On-the-fly analysis on the things you know about...
and proxy rewrites for the things you don't?
