Internet access saturation has become a significant issue in recent years, with the rise of rich-media web sites, streaming services, social media, peer to peer traffic and much more. This makes it harder for organizations to operate normally and to maximize their investment in Internet connectivity.

Using world-class technology, Elfiq Networks has developed the Elfiq App Optimizer, designed to give organizations full control over their existing and future bandwidth, guaranteeing key applications such as Citrix XenDesktop or Skype get priority treatment and undesirables such as peer-to-peer file transfers or games are limited or no longer permitted. 

The Elfiq App Optimizer is an add-on module for the award-winning Elfiq Link Balancer product family which provides application-layer deep packet inspection (Layer-7), classification and control including Mobile, Social Networking, P2P, Instant Messaging, File  sharing, Enterprise and Web 2.0 applications.

 

The Elfiq App Optimizer is able to proactively manage over 750 applications in the following categories:

  • Collaboration
  • Database
  • File sharing
  • File transfer
  • Games
  • Mail
  • Messaging
  • Network monitoring
  • Networking
  • Peer to peer
  • Proxy
  • Remote access
  • Social networking
  • Streaming media
