Blue Coat’s web application protection capabilities protect web applications whether they reside in an on-premise datacenter or inside cloud-based datacenter environments.
- Web Application Firewall: The 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.
- 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. The 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.

- Excellent at preventing unwanted browsing and malicious sites
- Great reporting, useful to see potential issues and/or sites that may need to be reviewed for potential whitelisting.
- Perfect system for kiosk environments, limiting browsing to local on-network sites until the user authenticates
- The admin interface would be better off not using Java
- Setting up SSL properly can be a bit challenging
- Could really use a better source for training, like a library of how-to videos
For small offices, with minimal traffic this may be using a sledgehammer to put in a push pin. It will work great, but the devices is likely over engineered for small offices (<50 people). That being said, price-wise it's still a great solution when compared to competing products and being from Symantec, you know it's going to be around and support for the long term.
