The trend towards delivering web content via HTTPS has made it difficult for many caching solutions, reducing their effectiveness for many schools and education authorities around the world.
CACHEBOX fully supports HTTPS caching. Thanks to its specialised HTTPS caching capabilities, schools with a large amount of HTTPS traffic can cache content from:
- Popular sites like YouTube and Facebook.
- Specific online educational resources from publishers like Pearson Education, Khan Academy and Smarty Ants.
Caching HTTPS – alongside caching HTTP – results in significant additional bandwidth savings. That makes online educational content, like Pearson’s SuccessMaker and SmartyAnts, much more usable in the classroom thanks to caching’s local storage and fast local delivery.
CACHEBOX’s HTTPS caching functionality is very easy to use. Hundreds of schools around the world have already enjoyed significant bandwidth savings.
HTTPS makes up for a large proportion of school network traffic – and it’s increasing, as Education Content Providers and Learning Management Systems (LMS’s) move to secure protocol delivery.
CACHEBOX makes HTTPS caching significantly easier to manage in these environments, even where the network setup seems complex (e.g. if your school has an existing content filter in place that is already performing HTTPS interception).
- Can cache HTTPS content for specific Education Content
- Lets you simply tag priority content for storage in the cache – and, intelligently, refreshes just the content that has been updated – all during off-peak times.
This makes CACHEBOX ideal for school environments which rely on specific education content and / or LMSs.
CACHEBOX and HTTPS Interception:
CACHEBOX can intercept HTTPS traffic both by domain/website and source/device. Its HTTPS caching features make it easy to apply different interception policies to different parts of the network.
