Infonetics Research Says Blue Coat Holds 30.5 Percent Share of Content Security Gateway Web Appliances Market

A recent market share report from Infonetics Research said that Blue Coat Systems, Inc., retained its leadership position in the Content Security Gateway (News - Alert) web/malware appliances space.

Blue Coat Systems, a company committed to delivering advanced web security technologies to help customers seamlessly protect their data irrespective of their location and network, currently leads with 30.5 percent market share.

Blue Coat's (News - Alert) innovative solutions allow businesses to embrace the shift to cloud-based applications and BYOD initiatives while our Negative Day Defense is the industry's only threat defense that can block web-based attacks before they launch,” chief marketing officer and senior vice president of Blue Coat Systems, Steve Daheb noted in a statement.

With mobile devices becoming a part of corporate culture, the task of protecting corporate networks is becoming increasingly tougher. The Blue Coat Unified Security solution can help companies extend their security perimeter to any user across devices on any network by delivering global threat protection and policy via Blue Coat  ProxySG appliances and the Blue Coat Cloud Service.

The Unified Security solution leverages the same threat protection and policy control infrastructure across both hardware appliances and cloud services.

Powered by the Blue Coat’s patented WebPulse collaborative defense, the Unified Security solution helps protect against increasingly sophisticated Web threats. WebPulse features a Negative Day Defense that tracks and analyzes malnet (malware network) infrastructures to block attacks at the source before they launch.

Providing the enterprises with unprecedented flexibility and reach in their security deployment, the Blue Coat Unified Security solution helps enterprises defend against the rapidly evolving threat landscape.

A year ago, Blue Coat Systems introduced enhancements to its Web security solutions that provide advanced application controls, more granular content ratings and actionable intelligence to deliver detailed visibility into and precise control over Web-based applications on the network.
