Web Application Protection


Protecting Web Applications. Blue Coat’s web application protection capabilities leverage our extensive experience and technology to protect web traffic, and applies these to protecting web applications, whether in an on-site data centre or inside cloud-based environments.

  • Web Application Firewall -- Our Web Application Firewall is designed to sit in front of corporate applications, to protect against threats that may attempt to exploit weaknesses in the application environment. It delivers protection through both signature-based and signature-less attack detection engines, and supports a broad range of authentication technology, allowing it to integrate with application needs across environments. In addition, WAF provides the ability to inspect encrypted SSL traffic and optimise performance, to improve your web application experience. Our WAF integrates natively with our Global Intelligence Network, to leverage real-time threat intelligence.
  • Reverse Proxy -- The Secure Web Gateway can serve as an internet proxy for users when configured as a reverse proxy, protecting critical applications and networks as they connect to the internet This configuration provides a termination point, where deep inspection for malware and policy can be deployed against traffic, before critical applications and networks kick in. Our reverse proxy gives organisations the ability to govern traffic and payloads across a wide variety of parameters, from location and device to netiquette policies. This solution is therefore ideal for connecting network segments or applications to cloud infrastructure.
