Jefferies utilizes Riverbed Technology to identify network dependencies, lowering risk of downtime and data loss.
Jefferies & Company is a major global securities and investment banking group operating in more than 25 cities around the world. Founded in 1962, the company provides investment banking, trading services, and asset management to a diverse range of clients.
In the midst of a complex data center migration, Jeffries needed to understand the dependencies in its existing IT architecture. As a global operation, the firm could not risk network downtime or data loss that might result from arbitrarily disconnecting servers and other equipment.
To get a clear picture of its network data flow, Jefferies selected Riverbed Cascade. With easy-to-understand advanced reporting features, Cascade enabled the company to identify vital network interdependences quickly and effectively.
