Overview:

ReporterBlue Coat Reporter gives you the ultimate visibility into your Blue Coat ProxySG installation, with detailed reporting on video and web application usage. Reporter quickly processes robust log data from Blue Coat ProxySG appliances and ProxyClient, as well as conveyed data from WebFilter and ProxyAV appliances, and creates intuitive reports for security specialists, department managers, HR managers and network administrators.

The highly customizable Reporter dashboard offers detailed views of user activity, web usage patterns, application access summaries, video usage, blocked sites, sites accessed by category, time of day, length of time and more. You can also evaluate security risks and block network infiltration through IM and P2P applications.  Reporter also offers the ability to anonymize any data field in any report and has support for international user names, URLs, and domain names.

  • Track potentially dangerous user activity

Scalable Performance

Security View

Management View
Managers need access to data related to the Web activity of their direct reports to manage productivity and achieve business objectives.

Anonymized View
Reporter also offers the ability to create reports with anonymized user data, when both privacy and data access is required.
