On a GAAP basis, the Sunnyvale, Calif., company reported net income of US$8.4 million in the second quarter compared with net loss of US$0.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2009, and net income of US$4.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

Earlier this month Blue Coat added three more appliances to its lineup: The ProxySG 9000 series of three units are five times faster than other models, the company said. They also support a full Gigabit per second of throughput when deployed in high availability configurations. The ProxyAV 1400 and 2400 units are aimed at high performance inline malware scanning.
