1. Application intelligence

There is a rapidly increasing, high volume of application traffic on today’s networks that can overburden existing WAN solutions. Application-intelligent firewalls visualise and filter non-productive and dangerous applications while forwarding business critical applications.

2. Blocking undesirable applications

Employee use of time-wasting and dangerous applications poses additional challenges for IT. Application Intelligence and Control provides the tools for the administrator to identify and block potentially unproductive application traffic such as YouTube and BitTorrent.

3. Bandwidth-managing applications

Critical business applications need bandwidth prioritisation, while social media and video streaming applications may need to be bandwidth-throttled.

4. Data de-duplication

Data de-duplication via byte and file caching reduces bandwidth consumption and lowers latency by orders of magnitude, delivering faster response times and a better experience for users.

5. Protocol optimisation

Protocol optimisation delivers snappy, LAN-like application performance for users accessing shared resources over the WAN.

6. Data compression

Today’s sophisticated applications generate a growing volume of network traffic. Data compression across the WAN increases performance and reduces latency.
