WAN Optimization for a superior user experience!

Great performance shouldn't be limited to certain applications, or certain users, or certain times of the day. That is why Blue Coat MACH5 S500 goes beyond traditional WAN optimization solutions and dramatically improves the performance of virtually all applications and workflows – from file transfers to backups, email, databases, video, and cloud applications. A cornerstone product of the Blue Coat Performance Center, MACH5 S500 combines optimization features such as protocol acceleration, compression, and caching to deliver high performance across IPv4 or IPv6 environments. And it deploys at the network core or the branch to assure that every user, everywhere experiences the superior performance they expect.

As the foundation of Blue Coat’s Application Delivery Network (ADN), Blue Coat ProxySG appliances accelerate and secure business applications for users across the distributed enterprise. The Blue Coat ProxySG Acceleration Edition is a powerful yet flexible WAN Optimization solution for improving application performance. Deployed at both remote branches and in the network core, ProxySG appliances form a transparent, secure and fast application delivery infrastructure to improve user productivity, reduce bandwidth expense and enable key IT initiatives.

ProxySG appliances licensed for Acceleration Edition deliver a full WAN Optimization feature set. With this, you can:

  • Enhance productivity across the distributed enterprise by accelerating internal, external and real-time application performance for branch and mobile users
  • Significantly reduce bandwidth with industry-leading compression, byte caching and object caching technologies

Blue Coat MACH5 goes a step beyond other WAN optimization solutions, which focus exclusively on data applications. With Blue Coat MACH5, you can leverage specialized optimization features for data, video, cloud and web applications — even in IPv4, IPv6 or mixed environments.

MACH5 appliances combine protocol acceleration, compression, object and byte caching and QoS to help accelerate key applications such as file access, email, web, storage replication and backup. For advanced applications, MACH5 integrates specialized live and on-demand video optimization for Adobe Flash, Windows Media, Silverlight, HTML5 and all video. MACH5 cloud-caching engines enable faster SaaS application access with no impact to the cloud infrastructure.

Boost speed while cutting costs.

Blue Coat MACH5 combines acceleration technologies such as protocol optimization, object and byte caching, compression and traffic shaping to accelerate application delivery to remote locations.

Get up to 300x faster access to files, email, backup, disaster recovery, and data apps in consolidated IT environments. Cut bandwidth consumption by 50-90%.

Blazing Fast VideoBlazing Fast Video

Caching and rapid delivery of web videos.

We add advanced optimization for web, video and cloud applications that deliver the next generation of WAN optimization.

Multiply bandwidth up to 1000x with more scalable video delivery.

Speed Up the WAN and the LAN

Optimization for everyone everywhere.

Speed Up the WAN and the LANDeliver faster access to both internal web applications as well as Internet and cloud-delivered SaaS applications. By combining these technologies into a single solution, MACH5 provides all the tools you need to optimize your entire WAN and accelerate more application types with more technologies than any other optimization solution. Optimize access for branch offices and mobile users as well.



  • Protocol Optimization: Accelerate application performance by mitigating the penalties that latency imposes on inefficient protocols or applications originally architected for the LAN and running on the WAN
  • Object Caching: Dramatically accelerate web application and workflows that depend on centrallystored files by delivering remote content locally in the branch
  • Byte Caching: Reduce the effects of latency, and significantly reduce bandwidth consumption for repetitive data elements, even across disparate applications, transmitted over the WAN
  • Compression: Reduce the effect of latency, and reduce bandwidth consumption for any compressible data transiting the WAN
  • Bandwidth Management: Ensure productivity by prioritizing enterprisecritical data flows over bulk-data or recreational traffic
  • Video Optimization: Stream splitting, video pre-population and video caching can save up to 99.99% of bandwidth
  • Mobile User Optimization: Productivity enhancement for mobile and home users with Blue Coat ProxyClient
