SteelHead for WAN Optimization

The #1 WAN optimization solution that delivers applications and data at the fastest speeds across the optimal networks at the lowest cost.

Formerly Known As: Steelhead

Riverbed SteelHead is the industry’s #1 WAN optimization solution that accelerates the delivery of applications to the branch and from the cloud, and allows IT to prioritize delivery of mission-critical applications over the fastest networks. The ONLY leader in the “Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers” for seven years in a row, SteelHead pioneered WAN optimization in 2004 with unique innovations for application and data streamlining across the WAN and Internet to deliver the best end-user experience regardless of location, network, or device while dramatically reducing network bandwidth.

With SteelHead, SaaS apps can be delivered up to 33x faster while using 97% less bandwidth. As a result, SteelHead has become critical to Microsoft Office 365 deployments with over one million users being accelerated to date.

What is WAN optimization?

Distance, delay, and inefficiencies—these can dramatically slow your access to data and applications over the Internet or a wide area network (WAN). By attacking the causes of slow performance, WAN optimization accelerates applications and data transfer so connected people can be more productive. It increases performance while enhancing IT control and visibility across datacenters and branch offices, in the cloud, and on the go.
