Web Application Protection
Protecting Web Applications. Blue Coat’s web application protection capabilities leverage our extensive experience and technology for protecting web traffic and applies it to protecting web applications whether they reside in an on-premise datacenter or inside cloud-based datacenter environments.
- Web Application Firewall -- Our Web Application Firewall is designed to sit in front of corporate applications to protect against threats which may attempt to exploit weaknesses in the application environment. It delivers protection both through signature-based and signature-less attack detection engines and supports a broad range of authentication technology, allowing it to integrate to application needs across environments. In addition, the WAF provides the ability to inspect encrypted SSL traffic and to deliver performance optimization to improve web application performance. Our WAF integrates natively with our Global Intelligence Network to leverage real-time threat intelligence.
- Reverse Proxy -- The Secure Web Gateway can serve as a proxy for users to the Internet when configured as a reverse proxy, protecting critical applications and networks as they connect to the Internet. In this configuration, it provides a termination point where deep inspection for malware and policy can be deployed to the traffic before critical applications and networks engage with the traffic. Our reverse proxy allows organizations the ability to govern traffic and payloads on a wide variety of parameters from location, device to policy around accepted behavior. This makes it ideal for connecting network segments or applications to cloud infrastructure.
