Best practice in pushing out Proxy settings

What is the best method in doing this?  Our Barracuda Web Security gateway is not inline (310vx).  I can easily push proxy settings via GPO to my windows machines.  I want to be able to auto configure/send proxy settings to all wireless devices as well (IOS, android, random laptops that are NOT domain joined - BYOD if you will).


I read WPAD is not a great idea and is vulnerable as it can be circumvented and traffic re-routed, etc.

I would like to be able to get all BYOD on the proxy as well without manual configuration.

What are you all using?

I cannot envision this working.  Content-filtering on ipads can only be forced via global http proxy and Androids are even worse.  You could do inline Barracuda or open DNS.

The vX (virtual appliance) does not support inline mode..can only do proxy or WCCP.
