Volvo Puts on Blue Coat

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - Blue Coat Systems (Nasdaq: BCSI), the leader in secure content and application delivery, today announced that Volvo Financial Services has selected Blue Coat® ProxySG™ appliances to provide WAN optimization for its branch and regional offices. The appliances accelerate business-critical applications, provide Web security to stop malicious and unwanted traffic and enable policy control and reduction of bandwidth consumption for the "gray area" applications that are between business-critical and bad. The appliances can even manage video and SSL-encrypted traffic from internal and externally-hosted applications.

Volvo Financial Services has 1,000 employees in multiple locations to provide financial services for customers and dealers of Volvo's truck brands: Volvo, Mack and Renault Trucks. The first implementation is between its offices in Aurora, Ontario, Canada and Greensboro, North Carolina.

"The Blue Coat ProxySG appliances provide a new way of thinking about WAN optimization," said Shannon Muncy, network services manager, Volvo Financial Services. "We can have visibility and control of what goes over the WAN and can accelerate a full range of business applications."
