Solana Networks is proud to introduce the latest enhancement to our leading product, TrafficWiz. This release introduces pioneering capabilities in encrypted network traffic classification, setting a new standard in network traffic visibility.

In this update, TrafficWiz now excels in classifying encrypted Over-the-Top (OTT) Apps, including Instant Messaging (IM) applications. It can accurately identify the specific services being carried by various OTT apps, such as WhatsApp audio, WhatsApp video, and WhatsApp file transfers, among others. This addresses a critical industry challenge, as traditional DPI methods often struggle to differentiate traffic types within OTT applications effectively.

Additionally, TrafficWiz's standout feature is its ability to identify 'unknown' traffic. This groundbreaking capability significantly enhances accuracy while minimizing false positives, providing users with greater confidence in their network traffic analysis.

This means unparalleled visibility into network traffic, even in an era marked by increasing encryption. TrafficWiz empowers users to understand network activities, monitor user behavior, and bolster network security effectively.

Across various industries, this release holds promise. Law enforcement agencies can utilize TrafficWiz to classify encrypted IM traffic accurately, facilitating lawful intercept operations with precision. Communication Service Providers (CSPs) can enhance network monitoring and Quality of Service (QoS) management, ensuring a seamless user experience. SD-WAN providers stand to gain from TrafficWiz's heightened visibility, enabling them to optimize network performance with confidence.

Solana Networks's commitment to innovation is exemplified by the latest release of TrafficWiz, a next-generation traffic visibility solution that addresses the evolving needs of network administrators and security professionals.
