While the Internet of Things promises many compelling outcomes, IT needs to be wary of issues surrounding legacy infrastructure, new security risks, and increased complexity that jeopardize initiatives. Specifically:
Riverbed provides a software-defined platform that simplifies the process of planning and managing IT architectures required to support IoT. Our solutions address concerns surrounding poor network connectivity and performance, trade-offs between data availability and security, and increased cyber threats that plague IoT initiatives.
IT leaders must displace traditional, device-centric networks to keep pace with business needs while ensuring consistent, reliable connectivity across IoT deployments.
Newer technologies such as software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) meet the challenge by making networks more intelligent, while mirroring the elasticity and efficiency of the cloud. Riverbed combines its SD-WAN technology with WAN optimization, network visibility, and cloud-enabled Wi-Fi, forming a cloud networking solution that is purpose-built to address the connectivity requirements of IoT deployments.
Organizations need the flexibility to host IoT apps and data based on business objectives—not technical limitations.
Riverbed gives you the ability to instantly deploy and centrally manage edge services, apps, and data associated with IoT initiatives to any location—all on a minimal IT footprint. Just as important, our technology ensures data is available for real-time processing and analysis at the edge, without compromising its accessibility at other business locations.
Companies need to host IoT data at the edge without compromising security, and they also need to bolster their network perimeters without sacrificing agility. Riverbed helps organizations strike the balance between these often-competing objectives.
Our solutions help you reduce risks and unwanted access by centralizing and securing all IoT data while maintaining tighter control over your network and all connected devices.
