Blue Coat and Integralis have been partners for security solutions for the past seven years. Now, with the addition of its MACH5 technology to Blue Coat SG appliances, Blue Coat and Integralis can offer both Web security and application acceleration. The appliances work between users and content or applications, providing control for both security and acceleration, based on a full understanding of user-application interactions.

By distributing Blue Coat appliances at key points in an enterprise infrastructure — the data centre, the gateway and regional/branch offices — organisations can create robust system architecture to protect, control and accelerate Web communications.

Integralis is offering complete integration services for the Blue Coat solution.

“The rapid changes in market dynamics have revealed a need for the integration of security with content and application acceleration,” said Graham Jones, chief operating officer, Integralis AG. “We share the Blue Coat vision for combining Wide Area Network (WAN) optimisation with Web security and are offering complete integration services for the Blue Coat product. Working together, we can serve our customers’ demands and challenges by combining their SG appliances with our integration capabilities, managed services and expertise.”

Blue Coat and Integralis are also planning a jointly managed service initiative with Blue Coat’s SG appliances through Integralis’ Network Operations Center (NOC). The two companies are also planning joint sales and marketing activities.

“By expanding our partnership with Integralis, we can leverage their integration and managed services expertise to better serve customers with application delivery solutions,” said Ray Kafity, Blue Coat Middle East general manager. “Performance and security are inextricably linked, and that is something that Integralis fully understands. Together, we can meet the current and future needs of corporations and government organisations.”
