Did you miss Riverbed at Zscaler’s Zenith Live in London? If so, here is a recap that gives details explaining how Riverbed and Zscaler truly enable digital transformation for the cloud-first enterprise and a seamless experience for users worldwide. What’s even better? SGS joined us onstage to demonstrate their success with Riverbed and Zscaler and how together, we deliver next generation network and security architecture, optimised for cloud-first initiatives.

Let’s start by exploring what we are telling the world together

It is no secret that Riverbed and Zscaler partner to deliver an unparalleled, integrated cloud-first solution that seamlessly expands SD-WAN benefits from on-premises to SaaS. Zscaler provides network security where it’s most efficient—the cloud, and the Riverbed Digital Performance Platform helps transform the way customers run the powerful network and cloud-based apps that connect people, businesses, and experiences in our digital world.

Cloud-enabled security, coupled with an SD-WAN solution that spans from LAN, to WAN, to cloud revolutionises digital transformation initiatives. This model enables organizations to create and manage consistent security and performance policies, regardless of where the user connects. There are no more compromises for employees when they travel to branch locations, and because you are breaking out traffic locally, you can provide fast and secure access to the internet and cloud apps, which means a better digital experience for all of your users.

SD-WAN + security = a powerful transformation story

SGS shared their story onstage at Zenith Live this year to explore how Riverbed and Zscaler enabled their ambitious move to the cloud. The success of their network and security transformation, powered by Riverbed and Zscaler made for a fascinating and inspiring session.

SGS is a multinational company headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland which provides inspection, verification, testing and certification services. It has more than 95,000 employees and operates over 2,400 offices and laboratories worldwide.

The key reasons SGS selected Riverbed and Zscaler for their digital transformation:

  1. Moved from MPLS to internet with direct-to-internet access
    • Limit MPLS to select use cases and dramatically reduce costs
    • Leverage ubiquitous broadband to increase bandwidth in branches
  2. Built an agile network for the cloud and in the cloud
    • Consolidated cloud management of performance and security
    • Seamless migration of legacy workload into Azure
    • Fast change management and provisioning

In closing, Riverbed SD-WAN enables a transition from a legacy WAN, to a modern cloud network with low OPEX and high agility, whilst Zscaler enhances, simplifies, and transforms your security infrastructure for SD-WAN and local internet breakouts.

Zenith Live was a fantastic event, and the perfect platform to share our exciting story.
