Samir,

Yes - SWG can install with a Bluecoat (or with any other proxy, for that matter). 

It can actually install either before the proxy (between proxy and end users) or after the proxy (between proxy and firewall/internet), but we highly recommend that it is installed between the proxy and end users so SWG can see the source IP of the end user and/or authenticate that user's AD credentials. 

There are details on this in the SWG Implementation Guide.

SWG doesn't really 'Integrate' with the Bluecoat so much as it would coexist with it.  Neither box is configured to talk to each other.  Really the Bluecoat has no idea SWG is present and SWG just needs to know what IP address/proxy ports the Bluecoat uses.  SWG would sit as a transparent bridge between the Bluecoat and end user or between the Bluecoat and the internet.

If installed between Bluecoat and end user, policies can be applied via IP address or AD information (if configured).  There is no integration with SEP policy as of yet.
