Sunnyvale, CA, United States, 2009/11/14 - Coat Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: BCSI), the technology leader in Application Delivery Networking, today announced that it has “scored strongest among leaders” in the newly issued November 2009 The Forrester Wave™: WAN Optimization, Q4 09.
According to the report, Blue Coat ”scored strongest” among the eight vendors evaluated in the WAN optimization market.
The report states that Blue Coat appliances are "one of the most user-friendly offerings in this space, with policy and configuration templates and wizards, device auto-discovery, automated device configuration, and an object-oriented or visual policy manager, along with a basic startup time of 66 seconds.” Forrester further states that by “leveraging its PacketShaper product, Blue Coat allows for identification of applications, enhancing the visibility of traffic due to its ability to classify more than 600 applications along with the ability to add classifications for custom applications, defined by the administrator — making Blue Coat a clear leader in application visibility in the WAN optimization market.”
"We believe achieving a leading position in the Forrester Wave™ report, WAN Optimization, Q4 2009 recognizes the unique approach Blue Coat has applied to WAN optimization by first starting with application visibility and then applying acceleration, security or control technologies as appropriate to the nature or business value of the application or content,” said Bethany Mayer, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing and Corporate Development for Blue Coat Systems. “WAN optimization is no longer about blind, indiscriminate acceleration but, rather, optimizing and securing the flow of information to any user, on any network, anywhere.”
