Servers occupy a place in computing similar to that occupied by minicomputers in the past, which they have largely replaced. The typical server is a computer system that operates continuously on a network and waits for requests for services from other computers on the network. Many servers are dedicated to this role, but some may also be used simultaneously for other purposes, particularly when the demands placed upon them as servers are modest.
Between the proliferation of mobile devices and the ever increasing amount of content on the web, DNS usage has seen a huge increase in recent years.

The use of SSL encryption for all enterprise Internet traffic is growing steadily. Applications that make use of SSL – such as SharePoint, Exchange, WebEx, Salesforce.com and Google Apps – are commonplace. Even email applications like Gmail, Yahoo, and Zimbra are being used in workplace environments as hosted email or BYOD apps.
It’s clear that organizations now need complete visibility into the SSL traffic coming across the WAN. They need the ability to preserve complete network and web histories from encrypted network and web traffic for compliance, regulatory and logging requirements. Blue Coat has solutions today to address the SSL dilemma.
