Blue Coat Helps Organizations Migrate to More Secure IE Browser
The ProxySG appliances can help organizations migrate users to Internet Explorer 9.
Blue Coat Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: BCSI) has said that the Blue Coat ProxySG appliances can help organizations migrate users to Internet Explorer 9. As noted by the company in this news release on Market Wire, the controls of ProxySG appliances allow customers to implement a user agent policy that blocks employees using older Internet Explorer versions, such as 6 or 7, from accessing any Web site except the Internet Explorer download site until they upgrade to a more recent, secure version of the browser.
"In addition to enforcing the policy, ProxySG appliances can report on all user agents and versions on the company's network, providing IT managers with an inventory to identify user agents and versions that need to be updated as well as an assessment of their risk profile. For users that require updated browser versions, ProxySG appliances allow IT managers to create custom coaching pages that direct users to the Internet Explorer download site or an internal server that hosts the browser update."
