Resolution
This guide is designed to provide insight and instruction on how to restrict content and control bandwidth using the Blue Coat ProxySG appliance. This guide assumes you already have a ProxySG with Blue Coat WebFilter and bandwidth management enabled running in your network. Minimum required SGOS version for chapter 2 is 6.2.3.x.
 
By using bandwidth management, category restrictions and Web 2.0 application controls you can restrict access to content that utilizes mission critical bandwidth, starving your company of crucial productivity.
