ProxyAVBlue Coat ProxyAV™ offers advanced malware detection at the gateway as part of the Application Delivery Network (ADN) infrastructure that provides complete application visibility, acceleration and security. ProxyAV appliances are designed for use with ProxySG Secure Web Gateway appliances to provide inline threat protection and malware scanning of Web content at the gateway, a part of Blue Coat's layered security defense. The unique, high-performance architecture of ProxyAV combined with leading antimalware engines efficiently secure Web traffic and protect users from Web-based malware. Together, ProxyAV and ProxySG provide superior performance and the lowest hardware footprint requirements, resulting in a more green and cost-effective solution. Protect your users and network from viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware and other forms of malicious content — even extending protection to users who are not running anti-virus software.

ProxyAV appliances work in tandem with Blue Coat ProxySG appliances and support industry-leading anti-malware engines. As an inline scanning device, the ProxyAV appliance analyzes all file downloads from user-authenticated Web 2.0 sites, webmail, file sharing and other methods of content delivery.

Blue Coat ProxyAV appliances support four modes of content analysis, which enables you to scan all web traffic and deliver greater protection against potential threats. All without compromising network performance. For further protection against inbound threats, ProxyAV appliances can scan files up to 2 GB in size and analyze up to 99 layers of compressed archives.

Together, ProxyAV and ProxySG provide:

  • Support for leading malware engines and frequent security updates
  • Superior performance and the lowest hardware footprint requirements
  • Protection from viruses, Trojans, worms, malware and other forms of malicious content
  • Security for users who are not running anti-virus software


Inline Threat Analysis

ProxyAV supports leading malware engines from Kaspersky, Sophos, Panda and McAfee with updates as frequently as every 5 minutes, providing better protection than desktop anti-virus solutions.

Unique to Blue Coat, deferred scanning keeps long load objects like Web radio and other media out of processing threads, optimizing Web gateway performance.

ProxyAV supports four modes of content analysis, including traditional object analysis, trickle first or last stream analysis, and deferred scan.

ProxyAV can be configured to analyze both inbound and outbound traffic and include options such as set time-out duration, drop file if errors in detection occur, and define trusted sites. Policy can be set for allow/deny lists, with extensions along with file size and content type restrictions. Alerts and log files can also be customized.

Performance and Scalability

ProxyAV is a purpose-built appliance designed for efficient malware analysis at the gateway. Load balancing and clustering technology achieve higher efficiency with less hardware than single box solutions.

ProxyAV communicates with ProxySG via ICAP(S), a high-performance and standards-based protocol.

The multi-core architecture of ProxyAV combined with load balancing and clustering technology boost performance to 1Gbps throughput for high-availability Web gateway deployments.

Scan Everything

ProxyAV provides best-in-class malware scanning with performance and security.

ProxyAV can scan files up to 2GB in size and analyze compressed archives up to 99 layers deep. ProxyAV integrates with multiple threat awareness clouds, including Blue Coat WebPulse and third-party clouds, providing multi-vendor cloud protection at the gateway.
