New Qosmos Classification Techniques Mean Traffic Optimization, Policy Enforcement, And User Experience Are Largely Unaffected By Encryption
Summary: Qosmos latest software can accurately classify encrypted traffic such as Google, Facebook, BitTorrent and Skype while preserving the privacy of communication content. Qosmos accuracy is strengthened by extended coverage of protocol signatures – now reaching 2,600.
Paris, France – July 13, 2016: Qosmos®, the market leader in embedded IP traffic classification and network intelligence technology, today announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g. Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g. BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content.
