New devices, shadow IT usage and the evolution of the network create an expanding challenge in the battle against advanced threats. Blue Coat’s Malware Analysis Service provides a highly scalable, cloud-delivered behavioural analysis sandbox for the detection and analysis of unknown, advanced and targeted malware.

Blue Coat’s Superior Sandbox Architecture
Prevent – not just detect – Advanced Threats

Blue Coat’s unique architecture for battling advanced threats stems from the leading proxy-based Secure Web Gateway, and adds the most sophisticated file inspection and behavioural analysis techniques available today.

In 2014, Blue Coat acquired Norman Shark – the technology leader in sandboxing –  located in Oslo, Norway. Since then, we have worked to continue behavioural analysis innovation and INTEGRATE these best-in-class technologies into our products and cloud services.

Proxy-based Architecture

  • Filter web threats before delivery – up to 99% of potential malware
  • Decrypts risky SSL, extracts payload, sends to file inspection and behavioural sandbox
  • High availability, inline operation with active blocking PREVENTS advanced threat entry


Advanced File Inspection

  • Inspects and prevents delivery of the vast majority of malicious samples
  • Combines best-in-class Blue Coat and third-party analysis engines
  • Pre-filters behavioural analysis for better prevention and fewer incidents to process


Best-in-Class Sandboxing

  • Real time prevention works with proxy to delay delivery until completion of cycle
  • Detonates suspicious samples on targeted OS images 
  • Faster analysis, with lower CPU/memory requirements
