Browsers protected by Menlo Security will now prioritize the active browser window and deprioritize the inactive ones.
As any office worker knows, browser tabs have a way of multiplying during the work day. Sure - it begins innocently enough flipping back between two news articles.
However, after a while, the tabs will have increased six-fold as the user inevitably gets distracted between YouTube, Spotify, and Salesforce. When done on a large scale, all those inactive tabs can eat up valuable network resources.
Menlo Security now helps network admins conserve network resources by enabling you to throttle streaming content on users’ inactive pages. Now, all those Youtube videos running in the background are simply paused when not on the top screen.
The effect on the user is minimal as the change occurs only on content that is behind the top, active window being used. The result provides bandwidth savings with virtually no impact to the end-user.
