How does this position Blue Coat in the changing cloud security market?

If you think about the industry in 24 months and in 36 months out and if you're an investor…what is the world going to be like 36 months from now? With the massive transformation that we are feeling in our customer base around the cloud adoption, there is a fundamental change happening that I'd like to comment on. When you go to Amazon AWS or you go to [Microsoft] Azure, you don't get to pick your firewall. The firewall and the load balancers are decided for you in their infrastructure. The defense in depth that is required to fight against cyber threats becomes a web dial tone conversation…The reason why we are seeing unprecedented demand for secure gateways is they are a massive part of the future. Proxies are the new black. If you think about that for a while, you will really get behind what we're doing. We own the web dial tone. We intend to own cloud. We are doing very well in that right now. With the power we're bringing to the market now, we expect to dominate…That is something where we won't see a lot of incumbency and a lot of white space with customers. We hope to ride some of that growth and we feel really good about that.
