I recently have passed the Blue Coat Certified ProxySG administrator course. The exam could have been better, what i suggest to bluecoat is:
- The questions should address the understanding of ProxySG functions.
- NO questions about other blue coat products.
- More efforts into the concepts and implementations of ProxySG.
- Reduce the exam time, 4 hours is a lot.
The topics covered in this exam are
-> Blue Coat Family of Products
-> Understanding Proxy Servers
-> ProxySG Deployment
-> ProxySG Licensing
-> ProxySG Initial Setup
-> ProxySG Management Console
-> Hypertext Transfer Protocol
-> Policy Management
-> Authentication Introduction
-> Authentication using LDAP
-> Creating Notifications
-> Creating Exceptions
-> Access Logging
-> WAN Optimization Features
-> Service and Support
To anyone who is thinking of taking the exam, i would suggest that you read materials at least one. Mark and highlight all the points that matter. The exam is open book, so finding the right information in the right time is important.
