Dubai Investments banks on Blue Coat WAN
Dubai Investments has contracted Blue Coat to supply it with WAN optimisation devices to make better use of existing bandwidth.
Dubai Investments has selected application delivery specialists Blue Coat Systems to supply it with devices to optimise its network infrastructure.
With the help of Blue Coat's ProxySG devices, Dubai Investments claims that it can now focus its bandwidth on mission-critical applications, while lowering response times for its remote users. The use of Wide Area Network (WAN) optimisation has also allowed the investment company to avoid a costly bandwidth upgrade.
The firm's remote offices can now segregate data, so that business-related applications such as ERP and e-mail can be channelled directly to HQ, while web traffic uses local broadband connections.
"Our business demanded a solution that would optimize and secure the flow of information across any of our distributed locations and for any remote user. The Blue Coat installation has considerably reduced our bandwidth consumption over the WAN and across our Internet connections enabling us to contain network costs while boosting employee productivity and expediting business processes," claimed Manohar K, IT advisor for Dubai Investments.
"We are proud to supply Dubai Investments with solutions that make available WAN optimization and Web security to all users in its organisation and to client companies, while reducing overall operational costs," added Nidal Taha, regional director for the Middle East and Turkey at Blue Coat Systems.
