The growing adoption of mobile devices is blurring the boundaries of the corporate network. With the Blue Coat Unified Security solution, companies can extend their security perimeter to any user across devices on any network by delivering instant threat protection and policy via Blue Coat® ProxySG® appliances and the Blue Coat Cloud Service.
