The Elfiq AppOptimizer will not only reclaim bandwidth capacity lost to less critical applications but will also help with security and compliance.

Elfiq Networks, manufacturer of the most innovative link balancer solutions on the market today, has announced the availability of AppOptimizer. This new technology enables organizations to proactively manage their bandwidth at the application layer, providing a greater return on investment for deployed bandwidth and services.

“Elfiq Networks is proud to deliver this exciting technology to our award-winning Link Balancer product line,” said Jean Pascal Hebert, Vice President of Business Development at Elfiq Networks. “The Elfiq AppOptimizer will not only reclaim bandwidth capacity lost to less critical applications but will also help with security and compliance.”

The Elfiq AppOptimizer brings visibility to the application layer of WAN-based network traffic. With this capability, organizations can classify and shape traffic based on priorities and policies. Key applications such as Skype, Salesforce.com, Citrix Xen Desktop and messaging will be prioritized, while less critical ones such as BitTorrent or Netflix traffic may be throttled or dropped.

Organizations can maximize their investment in their ISP services and obtain more performance without increasing their subscribed services, significantly enhancing return on investment. In some business sectors, certain traffic types are either undesirable or may cause compliance issues. With the Elfiq AppOptimizer, this situation can be avoided altogether.

“We’re very impressed by this new addition to Elfiq’s product line,” said Jean Julien, VP at Victrix, Inc., an Elfiq Elite Alliance Partner. “Our customers have been looking for a cost-effective solution to managing bandwidth, and the AppOptimizer is exactly what they are looking for. We already have many customers evaluating this technology, and their feedback is very positive.”

The Elfiq AppOptimizer will be available as an add-on module to Elfiq’s Link Balancer product line in summer 2012 and will give organizations the combined benefits of business continuity, bandwidth management and performance optimization.

Elfiq Networks is rapidly becoming the leader in bandwidth management and ISP link balancing by developing a global network of value-added reseller partners. Elfiq has been implemented by organizations in over 130 countries worldwide.

Elfiq Networks’ link balancers enable organizations to utilize multiple concurrent ISP circuits to prevent Internet connectivity downtime and improve overall access performance. With more Internet-based applications and services being used in organizations every day, proper access to the Internet has become a critical asset for normal business operations, where loss of connectivity or ISP link saturation will result in lost revenues.
