Audio streaming affecting bandwidth
Posted on 2013-11-14
Hello All and thanks for taking the time to read my question post.
I am trying to implement a new security policy for our data network that prohibits our computer users from streaming of audio and video while at work and using their company owned desktops and laptops.
My debate and argument is that this activity (streaming audio and video) uses bandwidth and also opens our network up to risks of trojans, malware etc slipping into our network through these open streaming ports. The argument back to me is that there are only 6 users in our office so it should not affect our bandwidth.
Is there something else I should be using to make my case solid. I realy want to implement this new policy but.
Also, we have users that VPN in that use even more bandwidth data traffic.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
