Blue Coat moves into DLP market

Company rolls out appliances to stop data loss.

Blue Coat Systems has introduced its first line of security appliances designed for Data Loss Prevention (DLP.)

The company said that its new line would aim to stop data loss by combining both internal management tools with web and network security protections through a single appliance.

The network appliances will sport components such as data fingerprinting and file management along with tools to prevent web-based attacks and network traffic management tools.

In doing so, Blue Coat aims to provide enterprises with a secure DLP system that can be deployed in a much shorter amount of time than previous systems.

Additionally, the company is planning to integrate the DLP appliances with the Blue Coat ProxySG traffic monitoring device and the Secure Web Gateway security service. The company hopes that the combined services will appeal to organisations focused on simplicity and ease of deployment and management.

"The Blue Coat DLP appliances provide a no compromise approach to data loss protection that supports enterprise-class DLP functionality in an easy-to-deploy solution," said Blue Coat vice president of product marketing Carrie Oakes.

"By extending the Blue Coat Secure Web Gateway solution to include our new DLP appliances, we now provide our customers with layered, comprehensive security that prevents malicious content from entering the network and sensitive content from leaving the network."

The company said that it plans to deliver the DLP appliances on 30 June.
