The benefits

Essential protection for your web traffic

Bolster your security with protection that creates a powerful barrier between the web and your assets. Every time your employees access a web page or service, it’s vetted for inappropriate content, viruses and malware before it can be exposed to your systems.

Cut your exposure to risk
Browsing the internet is now seen as the biggest risk to businesses. So it makes sense to have an extra level of protection to limit your organisation’s exposure to potential harm.

Keep it flexible
You can have the system installed on your own premises and managed by us, or we can host the service for you. In both cases, you benefit from our global reach.

Stay in control
You can manage who visits which websites, and when, with a full audit trail. You’ll also get full reports of web traffic and threats.

The BT Blue Coat solution helps protect the council against online threats, helps protect residents when accessing our online services, and helps protect our staff and pupils when using the internet. It offers the security we demand and the flexibility to meet our changing business requirements.”
- Andrew Unsworth, Head of e-Government, The City of Edinburgh Council
