Network Performance & Optimization
Whether it is a move to cloud-based applications such as Office 365 and SalesForce.com, or BYOD and social media, today’s businesses are faced with an insatiable appetite for network and application performance. But how do you achieve great performance and user experience in a secure and productive network environment while keeping your operating and bandwidth costs in-check?
Businesses are turning to Blue Coat Performance solutions to get visibility into applications and performance, manage network usage, decide how best to allocate bandwidth, and optimize performance via caching.
Our customers are using Performance technologies to:
- Optimize performance and user experience of cloud applications Cloud-based computing brings great flexibility and high efficiency. By identifying, prioritizing and accelerating cloud application traffic on the network, Performance technologies can help you boost application performance and improve user experience.
- Understand bandwidth usage Performance solutions give you visibility into network efficiency and how network bandwidth is being used so you can make informed decisions on how to allocate and/or purchase bandwidth in this application-driven era.
- Control performance based on business priorities Apps use a huge amount of your network’s bandwidth, but they’re not always used for business. With Performance solutions, you can slow down recreational apps during business hours, and speed up business apps such as SAP, Salesforce.com, and VoIP or videoconferencing.
- Optimize performance without increasing bandwidth costs Buying more bandwidth isn’t necessarily the best way to speed up apps. With Performance solutions, you can take advantage of caching, stream-splitting, and other technologies to boost the performance of media-rich apps while saving money on bandwidth cost.
