Cloud Based Web Defence Centre Established in Australia

Blue Coat Systems : 12 March, 2010  (Company News)
Blue Coat has increased its coverage of data centres with a new one in Australia to expand web threat awareness globally
Blue Coat Systems has expanded its Blue Coat WebPulse collaborative cloud-based defence with the addition of a fifth data centre in Australia. The new data centre enhances the speed of dynamic ratings for regional customers while increasing Web awareness and protection against rapidly evolving Web-based threats for the more than 62 million worldwide WebPulse users.

The WebPulse service works in conjunction with Blue Coat WebFilter to provide a critical first line of defense for malicious threats and categorization of URLs. The Blue Coat WebPulse service utilizes industry-leading Web intelligence, in-depth threat analysis and advanced malware detection to identify malware, phishing, and other malicious content that utilize dynamic link chains across multiple Websites. Results are immediately available to all 62 million WebPulse users without requiring software downloads or other recurring update cycles. Additionally, new or enhanced defences can be added to the WebPulse service, immediately protecting all users and providing a scalable defense architecture that does not require new or incremental hardware or software deployments by the customer.

With the addition of the new data centre in Australia, WebPulse users automatically benefit from a stronger distributed global network that now includes five global data centres located in the US, Europe and Asia. The data centres are strategically located around the world to provide rapid and comprehensive coverage of and ratings for unknown URLs and Web content in over 50 languages with real-time ratings in 17 languages.

"WebPulse is at the foundation of the hybrid Blue Coat Secure Web Gateway solution and delivers on-demand security intelligence that protects users in any location at any time," said Carrie Oakes, vice president of product marketing at Blue Coat Systems. "Combining real-time inputs from users worldwide with cloud-based content analysis through WebPulse provides users with 24/7 protection from Web-based threats."

Blue Coat WebFilter customers are automatically protected by the WebPulse service. Additionally, Blue Coat ProxyClient software automatically connects to the WebPulse service to provide the latest intelligence on new Web content and threats to protect remote and mobile workers. Protection by the WebPulse service is also a built-in feature of Blue Coat K9 Web Protection for consumers.
