Internet Bandwidth Usage Reports

Streaming videos from Netflix can consume up to 7GB of data per hour. Users that misuse the internet in their workplace aren’t only harming their own productivity, they also strain the available bandwidth and increase network latency.

Reduce Latency

Slow internet speeds caused by bandwidth abuse reduce the effectiveness of your workforce through dropped VoIP/video conferencing connections, longer wait times to access critical resources, and internet connection loss from excessive overload on network hardware.

Save Money

Bandwidth consumption history reports allow you to strategically plan investments in upgrades to networking hardware. With bandwidth consumption insights you have the data you need to determine if upgrades are truly necessary.

Detect Malware

Monitor for bandwidth spikes that are caused by dangerous torrenting websites and malware that turns endpoint devices into botnets or rigs for unauthorized cryptocurrency mining (‘cryptojacking’).
