Blue Coat Bundles Secure Web Gateway

Blue Coat Systems : 10 June, 2010  (New Product)
Access to the Secure Web Gateway from Blue Coat Systems is now available to a wider customer base through bundled package agreements
Blue Coat Systems has bundled its Secure Web Gateway products to simplify the adoption of a comprehensive Web security solution and to lower the overall cost of that solution. Blue Coat created the bundles to enable smaller enterprises to put in place a robust Web security solution that has become a standard for leading enterprises around the world. Over 80 percent of the Fortune Global 500 are Blue Coat customers.

Given the substantial increase in malicious Web threats, companies need a layered defence to protect their Internet gateway connections, which combines in-line threat analysis, content controls, Web filtering, inspection of SSL-encrypted traffic, authentication and policy management along with on-demand cloud-based threat intelligence for new Web sites and dynamic links. The bundles include Blue Coat ProxySG and ProxyAV appliances, Blue Coat WebFilter, Blue Coat Reporter and Blue Coat ProxyClient products, Blue Coat SSL proxy, Kaspersky Labs Anti-Malware software and three years hardware and software support.

Since users often work in locations outside of a corporate office, ProxyClient software can extend the protection from malicious threats and phishing to individuals regardless of their location, while also enforcing acceptable Web usage policies and accelerating remote access to centrally stored files. Blue Coat Reporter software provides necessary analytical information and reports required for compliance.

"Companies need to defend themselves from the escalating level of criminally-driven Web exploits and malicious attacks with a combination of Internet gateway protection and on-demand large-scale community-based intelligence," said Carrie Oakes, vice president, product marketing and management, Blue Coat Systems. "Our bundled solutions for Web security bring a comprehensive defence to businesses, while eliminating the complexity of procuring them and lowering the cost."

The Web security bundles support companies of up to 1,500 users. There is an option for high availability (HA) dual gateways in an active-active deployment, or non-HA with a single gateway for deployment. Each bundle is orderable using a single product number and provides a discount of up to 40 percent off the list price of purchasing the items individually. Prices start at $11,300 US, for 100 users, the equivalent of $38 per user per year.
