This paper will discuss strategies for controlling a broad range of recreational Internet traffic such
as instant messaging, P2P file downloads and social networking activities that can significantly
slow business applications and impact employee productivity. By implementing a solution to
effectively detect, classify and control recreational traffic, including encrypted P2P traffic designed
to slip past corporate firewalls, organisations can improve employee productivity, accelerate
application response times, reclaim bandwidth for business-critical applications and defer costly
bandwidth upgrades. Read this whitepaper.
