Blue Coat Web Security Service

On-demand Web Security

Comprehensive protection against web-based threats for all users – regardless of location – is provided by leveraging Blue Coat’s proven security technology and WebPulse collaborative defence of over 75 million users, to offer a cloud-based web security service.

Detailed, customisable reporting  provides visibility into web traffic and granular web application and operation controls.  IT administrators have actionable intelligence to instantly create and apply new policies to all users, including roaming workers on external networks.

Just as important, the Blue Coat Web Security Service identifies and categorises new web content in real time with 99+% accuracy. And rest assured, knowing that the Blue Coat Cloud Service is backed by a guaranteed 99.999% uptime agreement.

Reduced Cost and Complexity

Brings significant cost savings by eliminating the need to purchase, deploy and maintain on-premise hardware or software. Intuitive tools make it easy to create, enforce, and monitor effective web use policy.

And because the service leverages a user-based subscription, you only pay only for what you need, and can seamlessly scale your web threat protection as required.

Real-Time, Dynamic Malware Protection

Delivers enterprise-grade malware protection using a combination of sophisticated, real-time web ecosystem analysis and inline malware scanning.

Blue Coat’s sophisticated web traffic behavioral analysis system inspects all parts of the web ecosystem to determine suspicious and malicious sites, and also examines malware-prone file types in detail. It even identifies “phone-home” or botnet traffic, enabling IT to quickly find and clean infected assets.

Powered by the WebPulse collaborative defence, which provides real-time inputs from 75 million users for unmatched intelligence on global web activity. This Global Intelligence Network is used to generate proactive malware defences that identify and block malware before a user is infected.

Accurate and Relevant Web Content Filtering

Includes Blue Coat’s comprehensive web filtering capabilities, which enable customers to achieve compliance by consistently enforcing their acceptable use policies.

These features also allow IT to accurately filter web traffic by assigning multiple categories to any given URL, based on ratings from the WebPulse Global Intelligence Network.

Because static ratings of known web threats cannot protect against highly agile sources of malware, the service provides dynamic rating algorithms that identify and categorise web content in real time, ensuring the most up-to-date URL filtering.

Granular Web Application Controls

Provides the industry’s most effective controls for managing Web 2.0 applications, including the ability to control the use of leading social media applications such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, LinkedIn and more. IT can apply policies based on a wide range of criteria, including user, group, applications, postings, and media transfer controls:

Allow access to social media sites such as Facebook, but block specific activities within the site, such as gaming or posting. Enforce SafeSearch and keyword search controls for all major engines, including media search engines.

Powerful, Intuitive Policy Management and Reporting

Incorporates industry-leading proxy and policy technologies, which have become the global standard for network security architectures. Administrators can quickly and easily enforce broad-based or detailed policies for network access and use – from small groups to hundreds of thousands of users – all in one simple configuration.

Through seamless integration with your existing authentication systems, Web Security Service administrators can instantly report on web activity by user, group or across the organisation. Organisations of any size can leverage the rich, enterprise-level reporting features of the Web Security Service, including dashboards, drill-down, and custom reports.

Enterprise-Grade Deployment Options

Architected to ensure flexibility and instant interoperability with existing network infrastructures. A simple configuration change to firewall, router, or proxy solution allows administrators to instantly protect and enforce Internet use policies for all users connected behind the device. An optional lightweight desktop agent ensures that roaming users are protected regardless of their location.

A Web Security Service for Any Size Business

Built on a secure, high-performance, multi-tenant architecture. Data centre deployment is geographically dispersed, with multi-network vendor locations and extensive redundancy. Individual components of the service are built on highly secure foundations.
