Blue Coat hits the road

Blue Coat launches regional roadshow to promote WAN optimization solutions

Blue Coat Systems is taking to the road, to promote its solutions for application acceleration and security.

The vendor is conducting a five date roadshow, taking in Kuwait, Qatar, Turkey, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

Nidal Taha, Blue Coat Systems Middle East regional director said that increasing number of users, richer content and applications and the growing number of security threats are all creating demand for WAN optimization solutions that include security and policy control with application and content acceleration.

"Performance and security have traditionally been at odds--but not anymore. The trade-off between security and performance forced companies to compromise security in exchange for network intelligence features and high performance, or vice versa. Blue Coat ProxySG appliances provide security and policy control and, at the same time, accelerate the delivery of content and applications. With ProxySG appliances, there are no trade-offs between performance and security," Taha said.
