Uncover the Real Bandwidth Drain

Hover over the image below to see Fastvue’s Site Clean feature in action.

Most websites use Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to serve and stream heavy content such as video, audio and images. These often have strange URLs and are difficult to identity.

Fastvue Reporter’s Site Clean engine resolves these CDN sites into the real website that the content comes from, allowing you to make better firewall policy decisions.

  • Receive real-time alerts on large file downloads

  • Identify bandwidth hogging users, applications and sites.

  • Real-time bandwidth dashboard for constant monitoring

“According to my firewall’s on-box reports, was by far the top site draining our bandwidth. Not knowing what it was, I decided to block it, only to discover it broke half the Internet! Fastvue Reporter now gives me the insight I need to block specific problem sites, not the entire CDN!”

Martin Johns

Managing employee online productivity is NOT an IT job

“The best part for me is that once I setup the reports and who they go to, I am out of the loop totally. The department manager can parse through the report, run more detailed reports, and take action without involving me at all as a net admin”

Andrew Reynolds (Frasca)

Fastvue Reporter SSL VPN Report

“Fastvue Reporter has allowed me to do queries/searches for specific data/occurrences based on users, IP’s, times, etc. that without Fastvue Reporter is extremely difficult to get results for through the base logging/reporting system. What normally would have taken half an hour to find in the firewall’s web protection / web usage report can now be done in a few minutes with much more detail.”

Nicholas Toupin, Hopedale Public Schools

“We can now manage our staff internet access without guessing. We can also provide monthly reports to Managers and also send browsing reports to HR for inappropriate use (this has already occurred!). It is also giving us good insight to our bandwidth usage. Fastvue Reporter makes reporting against Internet usage very easy and friendly to use. Non-technical staff/managers can now view reports and get a meaningful and clear picture of what is happening.”
