When it comes to holiday shopping, consumers don’t hesitate to take advantage of online sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Last year, PCWorld reported on the craziness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday with its release of “Black Friday-Cyber Monday Debrief:2010 Beat 2009”, noting that 2010 beat 2009 with an estimated $1 billion spent Monday online. PCWorld also reports that online shopping grew by 44 percent on Black Friday in 2010 and many wonder what is in store for 2011 in terms of growth. With more and more people taking advantage of Cyber Monday, many bandwidth and security concerns face businesses with employees frantically searching the web for deals. Of course, our go-to tip is to “Monitor the networks” with the WhatsUp Gold plug-in, Flow Monitor, that allows you to track and resolve bandwidth issues and network traffic or congestion problems.
