WebThreat BLADE

Your workforce is spending more and more time on the web—and so are cybercriminals. Right now, 85 percent of successful attacks originate from web-based traffic and apps. Additionally, advanced targeted attacks are now commonly using social engineering techniques to deliver advanced malware techniques into your organization.

How will you protect your users from the full range of vulnerabilities so prevalent on the web today—without unnecessarily constraining their activities or their productivity? With the Blue Coat WebThreat BLADE.

Deployed on our Security Analytics Platform, this blade provides you with real-time, comprehensive protection against web-based threats, so you can empower your workforce to access and use the resources they choose, whenever they like, with total confidence. The Blue Coat WebThreat BLADE delivers:
