Controlling Recreational Peer-to-Peer Traffic on Corporate Networks
Preserve Internet performance and control your costs
Recreational Internet applications such as BitTorrent, Skype and MySpace are growing in popularity. Unfortunately, these recreational applications are negatively impacting corporations by congesting networks, stealing network bandwidth and causing business applications to perform poorly. Applying application acceleration and quality of service at Layer 3 does nothing to alleviate this issue. Companies need a way to detect and control recreational peer-to-peer (P2P) Internet traffic that is slipping past corporate firewalls. The most effective WAN optimization solutions have the ability to detect and suppress recreational P2P to preserve application performance and control Internet communications costs.
