Blue Coat WebFilter by Blue Coat Systems, is a Web filtering software commonly used by network administrators at educational institutions and corporate offices to restrict access to websites deemed unsuitable, taking excessive bandwidth or receiving a high flow of traffic. However, when using this software, websites with useful and harmless content may also become blocked by the filtering settings. Luckily, you can use proxy sites to bypass any Internet restrictions and access any website being blocked by the Blue Coat WebFilter software.
