Blue Coat Systems, Inc., the worldwide leader in Web security and WAN optimization, introduces its Blue Coat Mobile Device Security (MDS) service, which is a network-based service for local enterprises to extend their IT security perimeters to mobile devices anywhere, anytime and on any network.

It is a BYOD security solution.

Jon Andresen, Blue Coat’s APAC Vice President says, “Mobile devices are changing the way businesses work, however users are almost completely unprotected against Web-based threats and potential data loss. Blue Coat's MDS service assures business that their network, as well as users are fully protected even in lieu of the BYOD trend."

Key features:
  • Advanced Defenses: Powered by WebPulse, MDS service is the industry’s only Negative Day Defense that is able to protect against threats faced by users on all devices
  • Granular Application and Operation Controls: Unlike mobile device-level solutions that only block entire mobile applications, the MDS service provides application and operational controls across mobile browsers as well. Companies can set flexible IT policies that prevent data loss, ensure consistent enforcement to closes the application security gap
  • Contextual Policies: Different policies can be applied based on user, device, location and content via the MDS service framework. This flexibility allows businesses to accommodate both personal and business usage without compromising on security.
