Blue Coat Threat Lab

The WebPulse collaborative defense powers Blue Coat’s Web Security portfolio, delivering fast and effective Web 2.0 threat protection for 75 million users worldwide. To keep pace with the evolving threat landscape, Blue Coat Threat Labs continually adds new defenses to WebPulse that are immediately available to all 75 million users without updates or downloads.

In the future, Blue Coat Security Labs expects that nearly two-thirds of all new attacks will come from malnets. By identifying and tracking malnet infrastructures, the Blue Coat WebPulse collaborative defense can link new servers and domains to known malicious components and block them at the source, before they are used to launch attacks.
