I've had exactly 1 problem in 8 years, I contacted support via the customer portal, less than an hour later I found myself in a screen share with a support tech who not only fixed my configuration error, but also took the time to ask about my usage and offered some great tips on changes. It was just one support incident, but I was impressed by the speed of response to a non-critical issue as well as the depth of product knowledge the support engineer had.
Symantec WebFilter / Intelligence Services Scorecard Summary
What is Symantec WebFilter / Intelligence Services?
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.
