We tested a PacketShaper 900 on a small test network showing how it can discover, classify and prioritize application traffic. We address four different questions that IT managers have about understanding how bandwidth-consuming applications interact over their networks, and how individual applications can be controlled for particular use cases.
A single-sign on, two-factor authentication portal that is easy to setup and deploy for both internal and external Web and other resources.
