Web 2.0 introduced the need to protect traffic outside standard Port 80 and 443. New applications such as torrents, annonymizers, and chat applications such as Yahoo and Google Chat use nonstandard ports for communication. Securing these ports ensures network compliance and reduces threat exposure, while enforcing the organization’s acceptable use policies (AUP).
iboss SWG Web Filters contain the powerful iboss SWG Enterprise Forensic Reporter to provide best-of-breed network reporting, forensic search abilities, and drill down detail of all network traffic*. iboss SWG Forensic Reporters provide dynamic real-time threat dashboards to pinpoint threats, bandwidth usage, and user activity. With its Bandwidth Plotter, administrators can track bandwidth consumption through a bandwidth plotter, heat map charts, and search functions to track individual connections. The proprietary Global Geotagging Map over IP provides live visual insight on where network traffic is originating from across the globe
iboss Bandwidth Management delivers control and visibility of network traffic. Flexible policies can be applied to throttle non-critical traffic during peak hours while ensuring that network-critical access is retained. With its real-time bandwidth logs and comprehensive data reports, IT can identify the area of bandwidth usage. Advanced controls allow policies to be set by predefined categories, domain, IP, or TCP/UDP and then applied to different groups providing simple management.
