"The cat-and-mouse game continues."
TorrentFreak is reporting that a German-based computer company--Ipoque--has developed a bandwidth management device to eliminate unwanted, encrypted Bittorrent (BT) protocols. There are no details provided on how their new system works, but Ipoque is known for providing bandwidth managing solutions for schools and Internet Service Providers (ISPs).
Ipoque is also featured to have a “whitelist” that can allow legal BT sites and trackers as an exception to the system while blocking all other encrypted BT traffic. Their new hardware maybe the solution that some companies are searching for since many organizations--such as Rogers ISP (see below)--are looking to throttle encrypted BT tranfers.
