Can traffic shaping improve the security of my network?

  • Hello there, just wondering, except bandwidth management, can traffic shaping be used to improve security? If yes in what ways?

  • Shaping can be used to ensure that internal users aren't using all the bandwidth with none left for internal users or externally-available services.  That's about all I can think of.

  • Shaping/limiting only deals with bandwidth management. It may improve the stability of your network.
