ProxySG S200/S400/S500

Complete Web Security – with Superior Performance

All too often, secure web gateway products force you to make a tough trade-off: stronger security or faster application performance. The Blue Coat ProxySG S200, S400 and S500 families are the world’s leading secure web gateway solution because they solve this dilemma, delivering both comprehensive web security and WAN optimization. The entry level S200, mid-range S400, and flagship S500 are part of Blue Coat’s Security and Policy Enforcement Center, and provide scalable proxy platforms to secure your web communications and accelerate business applications. With robust capabilities including user authentication, web filtering, visibility of SSL-encrypted traffic, content caching, bandwidth management, stream-splitting, and more, ProxySG is the most versatile secure web gateway in the industry. That’s why it is the product of choice for more than 78% of the Fortune Global 500.

Complete Protection and Control

ProxySG provides comprehensive protection and control over web traffic. It enables the following functions: Strong user authentication, web filtering, deep inspection of content for data loss or threats, security checks to the Blue Coat Global Intelligence Network, inspection and validation of SSL traffic, content caching and traffic optimization, bandwidth management, streaming media splitting and caching, and method level controls per protocol. It also has the ability to filter, strip or replace web content. The Web Application Policy Engine provides granular visibility and control over web applications. ProxySG is the ultimate foundation for a secure web gateway with its content controls and policy flexibility. It can also provide the unique ability to deliver web security and acceleration in one solution to a branch office. This all enables branch users to have access directly to the internet with the same security as users in a main office.

Layered Defenses Security Framework

When deployed with Blue Coat WebFilter, ProxySG includes WebPulse, part of the Global Intelligence Network uniting over 75M users for web awareness and response to web content and threats. Together they provide the best of on-premise controls with the collective intelligence of a cloud service. ProxySG integrates seamlessly with the Blue Coat Cloud Service to offer a hybrid solution for mobile device and remote user protection and filtering. ProxySG also integrates with the Blue Coat Content Analysis System to enable the highest performing inline threat analysis, including SSL, with a choice of leading antimalware engines. And data loss prevention integration is securely enabled with S-ICAP or standard ICAP on ProxySG with certified DLP partners.

Unmatched Performance and Reliability

ProxySG innovations in new hardware platforms with multiple cores and the SGOS operating system with multi-threading provide up to 1Gbps throughput for high availability deployments and scale 5X beyond the previous generation. SGOS is a micro kernel built for web object processing. Secure and small in design, it rarely needs attention or patches, and it runs year after year at performance levels beyond the competition. Health checks and monitoring provide administrator awareness, and Blue Coat Director enables centralized device, license and policy management of ProxySG web gateways.

Scalability and Lower TCO

The Blue Coat security framework scales in many ways. The result is a lower TCO, and performance innovations require less hardware, rack space and power than alternative solutions. New defenses can be seamlessly added to the WebPulse cloud to scale the depth of protection. Expanding groups of remote users on the latest mobile devices can be protected with the Blue Coat Mobile Device Security service. Available reporting scales for visibility of all secure web gateway and remote users, with custom dashboards and reports on a single server optimized for up to 20 billion log lines.
