The trend towards delivering web content via HTTPS has reduced the effectiveness of existing caches for many users around the world. CACHEBOX supports HTTPS caching fully. CACHEBOX’s HTTPS caching can save bandwidth in networks with a large amount of HTTPS traffic by caching content from:
- Popular sites like YouTube and Facebook.
- Specific education online resources from publishers like Pearson Education, Kahn Academy and Smarty Ants.
Caching HTTPS – alongside caching HTTP – results in significant additional bandwidth savings. For schools, this makes online educational content like Pearson’s SuccessMaker and SmartyAnts usable in the classroom. CACHEBOX’s HTTPS caching functionality is very easy to use and has resulted in significant bandwidth savings in hundreds of schools around the world.
