Unites over 75M users for greater awareness of new web threats and content
Sends newly detected web content to the WebPulse cloud service for analysis by real-time threat detection technologies, web rating machine analysis and human raters
Provides on-demand security intelligence, with no downloads required
Combines URL filtering and threat detection technologies
Analyzes over 2B web requests per week and is supported by operation and rating analysis centers around the globe

Step by step guide to creating a secure IPSec VPN Tunnel

Login to your Blue Coat ThreatPulse Security Portal at https://portal.threatpulse.com

Select Service from the far right corner of your browser screen.

From Network screen select Locations and then click on Add Location.

Give the network location a unique Location Name.

Select the Access Method as Firewall/VPN.

Enter the Gateway IP address that your network uses (Public IP address - Blue Coat ThreatPulse may automatically notice this for you).

Authentication Mode is PSK and enter a unique Authentication Key.  Do not copy and paste a key - so you need to ensure you know what Key you enter.

Enter the Estimated Number of users that will be traversing this IPSec VPN tunnel.

Enter your Country and Time Zone and Address Details (and Comments if you wish).

That's it! From the Blue Coat ThreatPulse screen you have entered all the information needed.

Now click here to login to your SonicWALL appliance and complete the process.
