Hello Anna @ 
Thanks for the update:
A few follow up questions:
Full content https/ssl inspection
  1. What technique are you using for this? Man in the middle inspection?
  2. What standard/compliance regulation/guideline are you using for physical and logical security controls to audit and restrict webroot users from obtaining data and private information from decrypted data?
  3. How will my browser see as the certificate being presented for a website such as gmail or facebook?
  4. You mentioned the exfiltration of MS office documents - does that imply that you can set policies to prevent MS office leaving an organization via HTTPS/SSL? What about the reverse?
  5. Will users have the ability to set preferences of sites they wish NOT to have ssl inspection for (banking, etc.)?
Thanks in advance!
