File Proxy Client can be used for proxying file downloads. This client is particularly useful when you want to serve files, such as libraries or other resources, through your server-side GTM setup, potentially using your subdomain.
The primary purpose of File Proxy Client is to have better control over file hosting and to potentially improve trust and security by serving files from a domain you control. And this is important for maintaining consistent branding, improving load times through server proximity, or adhering to specific security policies.
When using sGTM for proxying file downloads, the server-side GTM container handles requests for certain files and serves them as if they were originating from your own domain. So if you wish to ensure that all external resources are loaded on your webpages and are from your own controlled domains - feel free to use this client.
