Blue Coat W3C

When you configure Symantec (formerly Blue Coat) ProxySG to send log data to USM Anywhere, you can use the Bluecoat W3C plugin to translate the raw log data into normalized events for analysis.

Device Details
Vendor Symantec (formerly Blue Coat)

Integrating ProxySG

Before you configure the ProxySG integration, you must have the IP Address of the USM Anywhere Sensor.

Follow the KB article from Symantec, How do I write Access Log entries to a SYSLOG server?, to configure ProxySG to send log data to USM Anywhere. From ProxySG's perspective, the USM Anywhere Sensor acts as the syslog server. The TCP port number is 601. Make sure the log file format is W3C.
