Blue Coat unveils new Advanced Threat Protection and Content Analysis System

Matthias Yeo, Chief Technology Officer – Asia Pacific, Blue Coat Systems.

Blue Coat recently unveiled a new Content Analysis System with malware analysis and a new Advanced Threat Protection solution that are intended to bridge the gap between the day-to-day security operations and the advanced security teams.

The Content Analysis System is said to have the ability to block down threats, detect, and analyze zero-day advanced malware. It enforces a new threat intelligence to continually secure the network. It also combines whitelisting and malware scanning for known threats with dynamic malware analysis of unknown threats at the gateway, supporting up to two leading anti-virus databases.

Together, these technologies deliver the following benefits for businesses: (1) Best-of-Breed Sandboxing, (2) Malware Analysis Orchestration, and (3) Threat Intelligence Feedback Loop.

Blue Coat’s Advanced Threat Protection, on the other hand, fortifies the network by blocking down threats, proactively detecting unknown and even the already-present malware, and then automating the best practices to contain and resolve them.

The new solution is said to easily combine local and global threat intelligence to turn unknown threats into known threats at each stage in the incident lifecycle, thereby increasing the overall effectiveness of the security infrastructure.

“As empowered businesses rapidly adopt new technologies across all functions, it has become increasingly important that security teams understand threats will get through their preventive defenses. They must align to address advanced threats with a lifecycle defense,” said Matthias Yeo, Chief Technology Officer – Asia Pacific, Blue Coat Systems.

“The Blue Coat Advanced Threat Protection solution aligns security teams on the right strategy, the right process and the right actions before, during and after any security problem. This empowers our customers to continue to adopt new technology while assuring the security of their business,” Yeo added.

The Blue Coat Advanced Threat Protection solution provides technologies to: (1) Detect and Protect, (2) analyze and Mitigate, and (3) Investigate and Remediate.

Blue Coat's Content Analysis System with malware analysis is a key component of the Blue Coat Advanced Threat Protection solution.
