SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Blue Coat® Systems (Nasdaq: BCSI), the leader in secure content and application delivery, today announced that it has begun to ship its new Blue Coat RA appliances for secure remote access with integrated endpoint security. More comprehensive than a conventional SSL VPN product, Blue Coat RA appliances include capabilities for on-demand connectivity for both Web and non-Web applications; keylogger and frame grabber detection and suppression; active information control; host integrity checks; and browser security.
At the same time, Blue Coat announced that Steak n Shake Corporation, a restaurant chain with over 430 restaurants in 20 states, has selected Blue Coat RA to provide secure remote access for store managers to an internal online web application and to protect the data and session on managed and unmanaged clients. The comprehensive SSL VPN and endpoint security solution enables Steak n Shake to provide secure access from corporate-owned machines as well as unmanaged devices, such as a store managers home computer or an Internet kiosk, while protecting against inadvertent information leakage or malicious data theft.
We needed a remote access solution that would allow our store managers to use their own home computers to utilize our enterprise applications without the risk of sensitive corporate information leaking out onto desktops we dont own, said Sean Smith, Director of Strategic Technology Services for The Steak n Shake Corporation. Blue Coat RAs on-demand clientless technology enables us to provide the secure remote access that our store managers demand while minimizing the risk of information loss at the endpoint.
