AT&T Leverages Blue Coat for Cloud Web Security Service for SMBs

AT&T launched a subscription-based Cloud Web Security service for businesses that provides real-time protection against viruses, malware, and compromised web sites.

AT&T Cloud Web Security, which is built on Blue Coat Systems’ Security Policy and Enforcement Center, does not require any on-site equipment. It enables customers to enforce consistent global security policies across wired, roaming, and mobile environments.

AT&T said its Cloud Web Security Services uses a combination of sophisticated, real-time analysis, malware scanning and shared threat intelligence from 75 million users to block suspicious and malicious web content. By blocking communications to command and control servers, the service also enables IT to quickly identify and quarantine infected systems.

“Six months ago, we told our customers we’d deliver better end-to-end protection, making major improvements to our network-based defense, cloud security, secure mobile business, and threat management solutions,” said Andy Daudelin, VP, Security Services, AT&T Business Solutions. “Since then, we announced significant enhancements in each of these areas, but we’re not stopping here. The launch of this new on-demand cloud security solution is an important milestone in our commitment to deliver improved security, analytics, and threat visibility to our customers.”

Blue Coat Acquires Netronome's SSL Inspector Line


Blue Coat has acquired Netronome's SSL appliance product line for an undisclosed sum.

The SSL appliances, which are based on Netronome’s NFP family of flow processors, provide visibility into encrypted SSL traffic. Driven by the adoption of cloud-based SaaS applications and the growing use of HTTPS for Web sites such as Google and Facebook, encrypted SSL packets can account for a significant percentage of the traffic on a corporate network.   Netronome’s SSL appliances deliver SSL decryption in networks ranging from 100 Mbps to 10 Gbps full duplex.

Blue Coat said the Netronome SSL appliance technology will be fully integrated with its existing Blue Coat products.  The appliances also provide up to four data feeds to a wide range of in-network security applications, such as intrusion prevention, intrusion detection, sandboxing and forensics, which can then analyze the data for threats or data breaches.

“The SSL appliances are the industry’s highest performance transparent proxy for SSL network communications, and provide unique visibility exposing inbound threats and outbound leaks,” said Howard Bubb, chief executive officer at Netronome. “The product is an ideal complement to Blue Coat’s comprehensive suite of cyber security products, and extends their leadership position in securing SSL communications.”
 
“Netronome’s SSL appliances are crucial for helping customers address a threat landscape made more complex by the growing amount of SSL traffic on the network,” said Greg Clark, CEO at Blue Coat Systems. “Netronome’s leading high performance flow processors are at the foundation of its SSL appliances and will play an important role in our product portfolio moving forward.”

Netronome said the deal enables it to focus on its flow processors and flow processing technology.
