Cymphonix Prioritizes Bandwidth for Web Content and Application Traffic
When small and medium-sized businesses or K-12s want to manage how their Internet bandwidth is being used, they turn to Cymphonix. On average, 50% of any Internet connection is used for browsing–some critical and necessary, and some not. The other 50% of any Internet connection is used for Internet applications. Voice over IP (VoIP) and database backups are essential. However, other applications may be non-critical, like peer-to-peer, streaming media and music downloads. Cymphonix’s Network Composer is an inline network appliance that provides a secure web gateway to manage both browsing and IP application activity.
Brent Nixon, President of Cymphonix, shares an overview of the company and discusses some of the key issues IT managers are worried about, including the emergence of web apps that anticipate near unlimited bandwidth. Rather than pay for more bandwidth, Cymphonix lets IT managers see the top bandwidth users, top sites visited, and real-time data activity and manage and filter traffic through static and dynamic port filtering.
