BlueCoat Director 510

The BlueCoat Director 510 appliance gives you the power, control and visibility to ensure the success of your ProxySG deployment. Thanks to Director’s single, easy-to-use web interface, you can configure and manage all your ProxySG appliances wherever they reside on your network. You can also deploy, monitor and enforce security and acceleration policies on hundreds of appliances deployed worldwide. All without leaving your seat.

Automated job scheduling helps conserve bandwidth by allowing maintenance and updates, such as software and license upgrades, to be scheduled during off-peak hours. You can also update policies and ensure they are consistently enforced across your entire ProxySG deployment. And, with centralized management, you save time and reduce the security risk of needing to access the appliances themselves.

Get detailed reports on job status, key health statistics and performance per region. And, with real-time monitoring and alert filtering you can determine which issues require immediate action, where they are located and more. You can also schedule reports during off-peak hours and deliver them as PDF files through email.

With Blue Coat Director, you can do all this and more:

  • Simplify maintenance and policy management
  • Monitor the performance of your ProxySG deployment
  • Securely manage appliances through any web browser
  • Provision new devices in five minutes or less

Client System Requirements

Client System Requirements Java Runtime Environment, Windows 2000 or XP


Centralized, network-wide policy-based management

With Blue Coat Director, IT administrators can develop ProxySG policy locally and distribute globally, creating a flexible policy hierarchy that includes a global master policy, local/regional policies and even customized policies to ensure compliance. Rich features including remote access to the management console, available HA configuration and automated backup and archiving ease management of large and/or globally distributed ProxySG deployments.

Quick start-up

The web start application dynamically retrieves the Java library for a seamless login. Automatic grouping by OS and model types saves time and effort and simplifies ongoing maintenance.

5-minute provisioning

Rapidly configure and deploy new devices using flexible configuration templates to ensure policy consistency and appliance availability.

Simplified maintenance

Automated job scheduling allows for maintenance and updates to policies and backup scheduling. Software and license upgrades can also be scheduled during off-peak hours, conserving bandwidth and mission-critical business applications. The advanced search feature quickly finds the right information, and the ability to create special groups allows for customized policy where needed.


Logs changes to policy across appliances and prevents on-box access ensuring compliance and policy enforcement. AdminAuditor makes it easier to achieve policy consistency across ProxySG deployments as well as policy rollback.

Powerful reporting and monitoring tools

Get detailed reports on job status, key health statistics and performance per region. Real-time monitoring and alert filtering by severity, metric, state, status and time helps IT administrators make knowledgeable decisions quicker. Reports can be scheduled during off-peak hours and sent as PDF attachments in email.

Enhanced visual policy manager

Using the new table-driven visual policy manager interface or the traditional CLI enhances flexibility, allowing administrators to easily replicate and export policies to devices, as both interfaces offer full policy controls. Additionally, administrators can securely manage remotely using a web browser.

Content Management

Content Delivery Network Architecture provides the ability to distribute content across the enterprise network using the Job Scheduler, eliminating the need to backhaul traffic and conserving valuable network resources. Content can be distributed, prioritized and scheduled according to business needs. An optional XML API is provided for quick access to content distribution controls.

Delegated Administration

Provides delegated administration capabilities to URL and category based block and allow lists. Workgroup or Departmental administrators can now manage web policy for their own groups.
