Replace Blue Coat ProxySG with Microsoft Threat Management Gateway (TMG)


royal coast banner (1)blue coatFighting Web-based malware has become a 24/7 battle. The continuous theft of information, security breaches and data loss incidents initiated by this type of malware are forcing organizations to ramp up their defenses. Web security gateways are seen as a network’s best layer of defense against this type of threat. Many provide real-time analysis of web pages and scripts, point-of-click protection and integrated data loss prevention. Marketing hype however can make it difficult to understand how they actually work and decide which features you really need.

Web security gateways, which provide integrated URL filtering, anti-malware protection and application controls, are becoming a popular choice, but how does a company choose which product is the best fit for their needs?

Replace Microsoft Threat Management Gateway with ProxySG

For organizations that rely on TMG for web proxy services, Blue Coat’s market-leading ProxySG is the ideal replacement. Like TMG, it can be deployed as a reverse-proxy in front of web applications, or as a forward-proxy to protect users browsing the web. In both deployments, it meets and exceeds TMG proxy capabilities in every category – security, performance, reporting, Microsoft infrastructure integration, and more. More than 85% of Fortune 500 organizations choose ProxySG to protect web users and applications. In addition, ProxySG has consistently achieved market leadership recognition by top-tier analyst research, including being positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway 2013. If you are looking to replace your TMG proxy, there is no better choice than theBlue Coat ProxySG.
