Global manufacturer prevents malware outbreaks and ensures consistent Internet access policies, with no compromises. Tenneco is a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of emission and ride control products. The $5.9 billion company operates more than 80 manufacturing facilities, on six continents, with 22,000 employees. Tenneco was looking to mitigate risks to their organization from malware originating from the Internet with a cost-efficient, secure Web gateway solution that would allow them to control Internet access and use, with simple user authentication and single sign-on.


Tenneco needed to optimize and manage their WAN in real-time, protect their operations against dynamic malware attacks, and enforce corporate Internet policies around Web content, users and applications, including access by remote and mobile users.


Tenneco deployed Blue Coat’s Secure Web Gateway solution, comprised of ProxySG appliances, ProxyClients and Reporter, to provide real-time protection against attacks for all users. The solution simplified the deployment of consistent Web access policies across their global operations and enabled IT to assign users to a specific group and give access rights to those different groups.
