Enterprise: Web Traffic Using HTTP(s)

Enhancing Web Application Performance

Web applications have become richer over time, with more interactive data, larger embedded images, and file attachments. This, combined with programming inefficiencies and the fact that many client/server applications require download of substantial code to the client browser, makes it increasingly difficult to deliver web applications across a WAN. Silver Peak appliances accelerate and secure Web-based enterprise applications and portals through:


  • Web applications have become richer over time, including more interactive data with larger embedded images and file attachments. In addition, many client/server applications have a substantial amount of code that must be downloaded to the client browser before operation. All of these attributes make it increasingly difficult to deliver web applications across a WAN.
  • Encrypting SharePoint traffic, or for that matter any client-server traffic is even more important today than before; users work beyond the security of corporate walls while more security threats originate from within them. But encryption algorithms also cause problems by rendering application traffic largely immune to deduplication algorithms. Companies can end up with a secure application that responds like a slug over long distances.
