WEBINAR: Learn how to monitor BYOD on your network effectively

Forrester’s latest report on mobile adoption in the enterprise found that 66% of employees now use two or more devices every day, including desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets. A smaller, but notable 12% percent said they now use tablets at work. That’s still far fewer than the 50% who report only using a desktop, or the 82% who use a desktop alone or alongside other devices.

WEBINAR: Find out what users are doing on your Network

Users interact with the network in many different ways during an average day. They visit websites, send and receive email, download files from the Internet, upload photos and videos, perform online backups, and more. They can also — usually unwittingly — expose the network and themselves to intrusions, malware, viruses, phishing attacks, and other security risks.

Good visibility into user activity on your network can help you to troubleshoot problems when they arise; in many cases, it can help you to anticipate problems and prevent them from arising.

Join NetFort  on December 6th at 15:00 GMT for a webinar presented by Head of Technical Services at NetFort, Darragh Delaney that will give you valuable insight into exactly what users could be doing on your network.

During the webinar, NetFort will show you how to monitor different areas of the network including:

  • Sources of user data
  • Network traffic on the LAN and WAN
  • Internet activity
  • File shares
  • Mobile devices

Is your network being abused by employees using Spotify?

 

Spotify reached a milestone of 20 million monthly active users in May, according to music industry blogger and former
Jupiter Research analyst Mark Mulligan, who has been tracking Spotify usage with the help of Facebook’s publicly available app data.

Mulligan estimated that 17 percent of Spotify’s active users are paying for the service, which would mean that the company has around 3.4 million paying subscribers.   Mulligan estimates that Spotify could gain up to eight million paying subscribers within the next 12 months.

Spotify AB, the service is available in AustraliaAustriaBelgiumDenmarkFaroe IslandsFinlandFranceGermany, the NetherlandsNew ZealandNorway,SpainSwedenSwitzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The system is currently accessible using Microsoft WindowsMac OS XLinuxTelia Digital-tviOSAndroidBlackBerryWindows MobileWindows PhoneS60 (Symbian)webOSSqueezeboxBoxeeSonosWD TV, and MeeGo.[8][9][10][11][12][13]

In parallel with this growth, there has been an increase in concern on the impact Spotify traffic is having on organisations networks.  On top of these concerns,  there are those also around the bring your own device (BYOD) culture that is present and growing in the workplace and the use of Spotify on the increasing range of devices available just adds to the pressures on the IT department.

Spotify provides free audio streams at 160 kb/sec and high-quality streams to subscribers at 320 kb/sec. This means that a single user listening to the free service for one hour would download over 70 MB of data, while a user listening to the premium service all day would download over 1 GB.

You can easily check for Spotify activity on your network with NetFort LANGuardian, software that captures and analyses the traffic flowing through your network switch, stores it in a database, and displays the details in a web browser.

Take a look at the video below by Darragh Delaney, head of Technical Services at NetFort, giving you a demo of how LANGuardian is able to detect Spotify on your Network.

NetFort Free Webinar: Why has my Internet connection slowed down?

A new report of 1500 UK small businesses, produced from the results of a survey  released by Freelancer.co.uk, the world’s largest online outsourcing marketplace reveals that 57% say that the poor quality of their internet access adversely affects their ability to run their businesses effectively.  The survey puts small businesses at odds with Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who reiterated in a speech at the Google Campus building that broadband speed is more important than coverage.

NetFort, a provider of a range of software products that monitor activity on virtual and physical networks, invite you to join them for a webinar which aims to help you understand why your internet connection may have slowed down.

Slow Internet access can be a right pain both at the workplace and at home. Nowadays, we demand fast access to websites and cloud services. Gone is the day of 9600 baud modems and in its place we have high speed links allowing instant access to information. However, slow Internet connection is still a complaint I hear today. Today it was my neighbor with a one-computer network, and last week it was a hospital with thousands of connected systems.

The webinar session will look at some of the main reasons why your Internet connection might have slowed down.

  • Local network is overloaded
  • Slow DNS responses
  • Unknown downloading
  • Bandwidth vampires
  • ISP throttling
  • The website or service being accessed has slowed down
  • Malware or scareware on end users computers
  • Bad connection
