Integration Delivers the First Automated Change Management Solution for Secure Web Gateway Solutions

February 28, 2012

Roswell, GA – AlgoSec, the market leader for Network Security Policy Management, today announced a key relationship with Blue Coat Systems, a leading provider of Web security and WAN optimization solutions. The AlgoSec Security Management Suite now seamlessly integrates with Blue Coat ProxySG Secure Web Gateway appliances (SWGs) to simplify and expedite the security policy change request workflow – from end-user request initiation, design and review to work order generation.

“Today’s network security policy is dynamic, as business needs evolve to meet new demands. Managing changes can be time-consuming and difficult,” said Nimmy Reichenberg, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, AlgoSec. “Through our integration work with Blue Coat Systems, AlgoSec eliminates this challenge by automating the change management workflow, enhancing security and improving business agility.”

The AlgoSec Security Management Suite automates network security policy management and provides IT with visibility and control of complex, multi-vendor networks. It combines AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer and AlgoSec FireFlow, which automatically analyze and optimize complex policies to improve operational efficiency and compliance, reduce risk, and streamline the security change workflow. In 2011, AlgoSec boasted YoY growth of 95%.

The integration with AlgoSec solutions enables Blue Coat Systems customers to automate the change request process by providing out-of-the-box, role-based workflows and proactive analysis of secure web gateway changes to ensure compliance with complete tracking and auditing of the workflow.

“Blue Coat ProxySG appliances provide a flexible policy engine that allows businesses to create and enforce granular content, application and access policies according to group or user-level requirements,” said Sasi Murthy, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, Blue Coat Systems. “Integration with AlgoSec solutions brings a new level of automation and auditing to the process of managing policy changes and workflow for ProxySG appliances.”

This solution will be demonstrated at RSA in AlgoSec’s booth #344.
