Blue Coat announced Wednesday that China Bank of Communications selected Blue CoatProxySG appliances to secure its Internet access gateway.
The ProxySG appliances solved an ongoing problem the bank had faced with a saturated Internet gateway that would often be too overloaded for business-critical communications and apps, Blue Coat said in a statement.
'The Blue Coat appliances have brought control and performance to our Internet gateway, allowing our core business system to run more smoothly and rapidly,' said Gao Jun from China Bank of Communications.
Blue Coat said it appliances secure Internet access for the bank's 60,000 employees. The appliances can stop malicious content and enforce the bank's Internet usage standards, the vendor added.
At the same time, acceptable content and applications are accelerated due to the local caching and performance technologies the appliances provide, the vendor noted. Because of the controls and caching, the ProxySG appliances reduce the amount of bandwidth consumed, creating operational savings and ensuring that business-critical applications and communications have proper Internet access, Blue Coat said.
