Gammon Construction has deployed Blue Coat ProxySG and ProxyAV appliances to accelerate business applications and secure web communications across the WAN and distributed internet gateway connection points for the company.
Blue Coat’s products have been implemented at Gammon’s Hong Kong headquarters and its regional offices in mainland China, Singapore and Macau.
Gammon stated that with the new Blue Coat appliances, response time for content delivery has improved up to 40%. The appliances also incorporate Blue Coat WebFilter, a web filtering solution that runs on Blue Coat ProxySG appliances and enforces acceptable use policies, protects against spyware and phishing and helps manage employee productivity. In addition, Blue Coat ProxyAV combined with Blue Coat ProxySG provides virus scanning, against web-borne viruses and threats.
Horace Chu, senior manager of information management services at Gammon, said: We faced increased demands for faster application response time in our branch offices and across our internet connections and, at the same time needed to stop internet threats such as viruses, malware and spyware.
Matt Young, vice president, sales of APAC, Blue Coat Systems, said: The selection of Blue Coat appliances by Gammon Construction reflects our proven capabilities for combining acceleration with web security and control.
