Blue Coat secures web communications and accelerates business applications across today’s distributed enterprise. Its appliances and client-based solutions are used in branch offices, internet gateways, end points and data centres, and provide intelligent points of control to enable IT organisations to optimise security and performance.

Worldwide, Blue Coat has installed more than 25,000 appliances and is ranked number one by market analysts IDC in the secure content and application delivery market.

In today’s enterprise, where employees are distributed across various branch offices and are connected to the business by not only the corporate WAN but mobile internet, someone needs to make sure that the networks run at their best.

According to Blue Coat, this presents three main networking challenges for organisations. They must make the web safe for business, optimise the performance of critical business applications, and have visible, clear controls.

Blue Coat provides a family of intelligent appliances that work together with powerful software applications, powered by SGOS, its lightweight, purpose-built operating system. It recently unveiled its new Mach 5 acceleration technology to give even better performance and security for customers.
