Problem Description

Events like March Madness could have a high / negative impact on customers networks due to increased bandwidth usage for live and on demand video streaming usage.

 

Resolution

This guide is designed to provide insight and instruction on how to restrict content and control bandwidth using the Blue Coat ProxySG appliance. This guide assumes you already have a ProxySG with Blue Coat WebFilter and bandwidth management enabled running in your network. Minimum required SGOS version for chapter 2 is 6.2.3.x.

By using bandwidth management, category restrictions and Web 2.0 application controls you can restrict access to content that utilizes mission critical bandwidth, starving your company of crucial productivity.

The example policies have been tested using ncaa.com (March Madness 2012)
