Symantec - Blue Coat BlueFriday: Web Security services served from the cloud @ Exclusive Networks | Duffel | Vlaanderen | Belgium

Blue Coat BlueFriday

Workshop | Friday 10 March

Web Security services served from the cloud

With more the 50% of the Internet traffic being SSL/TLS encrypted, Secure Gateway services are a crucial component in protecting your roaming users and data when integrating cloud applications as part of the business processes.

Backhauling all traffic to Head Quarters might no longer be the most optimal way of connecting your users to cloud/SAAS applications. During this session we will talk about the Symantec/Bluecoat Secure Gateway services to protect your users while in the office or outside. We will compare on-premise solution with a full cloud solution and will look at a hybrid-approach for customers that need a combined solution or a stepped approach for taking Secure Gateway services to the cloud.

For our Symantec/Bluecoat partners we will also provide an update on the latest developments on the Bluecoat product portfolio.

Content

  • WSS Web Security Services:
    • Offering security for http/https traffic through the Symantec Cloud environment
    • SSL-interception services
    • Malware analysis solution in the cloud
    • Using cloud proxy to visualize shadowIT
    • Supporting O365
  • Centralised Reportig
  • WSS and SWG – Creating a universal policy between on-premise and cloud Secure Web Gateway
  • Product update: SWG 6.7 – Universal Policy and integration with SSL-VA offloading
