DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – October 30, 2011 – Blue Coat Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: BCSI), a leading provider of Web security and WAN optimization solutions, today announced that its Blue Coat® Reporter now provides intelligence about the usage of Web video on corporate networks. Version 9.3 of Blue Coat Reporter features a new tabular view of video usage information, providing an at-a-glance view of how employees or others on the network are using Web video.

Blue Coat estimates that video currently comprises an average of 20-50 percent of the traffic on a corporate network, but it can rise to 90 percent or more. Industry experts expect the amount of video traffic on corporate networks to grow substantially over the next several years. Blue Coat solutions can dramatically reduce bandwidth used by video over the Wide Area Network (WAN) or Internet gateway through use of video caching for on-demand video and stream-splitting for live video.

The new version of Reporter helps companies understand video usage trends by providing:

Top ten ranking of Websites accessed by employees to watch video, including the amount of bandwidth video each site consumes for video content
Top ten ranking of employees using the greatest amount of bandwidth for watching Web video, including the amount of bandwidth they consumed
Top ten ranking of groups within the company using the greatest amount of Web video, including the amount of bandwidth for each group
Top ten ranking of the protocols or methods used to deliver Web video

“Blue Coat uniquely solves the challenges companies face in delivering Web video and internal video over their existing networks,” said Nigel Hawthorn, VP EMEA Marketing at Blue Coat Systems. “The new Reporter product provides important insight on how employees are using Web video and enables companies to understand and address trends and patterns of behavior. In addition, our next generation WAN optimization solutions reduce the impact of video by a substantial factor while boosting the performance of business-critical applications.”

Blue Coat Reporter 9.3 is available immediately. Customers with previous versions of Reporter can upgrade free of charge if they have a current support plan. New customers of ProxySG® or MACH5 appliances can get a free copy of Reporter for 750 users or less. Companies with greater than 750 users can purchase an edition for larger organizations.
