Prioritize network traffic and increase network QoS with CyBlock Bandwidth Management.

Friday, May 8th, 2015

In the current Internet-connected enterprise, constant and rapid changes require IT to have proactive control over the organization’s bandwidth. Many organizations now allow the use of tools such as DropBox, social media, and streaming, as well as BYOD use for, and during, business operations. The idea is to use these tools for business productivity. But then combine this with any personal use of these tools, or other services, and you have a bandwidth drain on the company network. For an IT administrator, this holds many more challenges in how to make sure priorities are set for bandwidth. With CyBlock’s Bandwidth Management feature, we can help you battle bandwidth hogs, improving your network QoS and keeping your mission-critical operations running smoothly!

Concerned About Bandwidth Usage During March Madness?

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

Bandwidth is a main concern for many businesses during this March Madness season.  Many must deal with employees using company resources to enter online office pools, blog about the top seeds, and watch live streaming games that take place throughout March and early April.

In fact, CBSsports.com is expecting even more viewers online this year. They expect the number of unique viewers for March Madness on Demand, to rise 50% to 7.2 million viewers.  With the massive number of sports Web sites and streaming games available, companies can expect to see a considerable drain on employee productivity and network bandwidth during the NCAA Tournament.

While you may or may not allow your employees to follow the games at work, you will want to ensure that it doesn’t interfere with your network.  Wavecrest Computing offers Internet filtering by category or site, white list filtering, real-time web monitoring and detailed Web-use reports on a particular category or site and bandwidth usage.  Some reports you can use to monitor bandwidth or access to sports sites are:

  • Site Analysis Bandwidth Report
