With this significant release, Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution delivers the following enhancements:
Riverbed offers the only WAN Edge solution in the market that provides unified connectivity and policy-based orchestration spanning the entire distributed network – SD-WAN, SD-LAN, data centers and both public and private clouds, with easy-to-use, one-click automated connectivity into Microsoft Azure and AWS. Riverbed SD-WAN provides customers with the flexibility to steer traffic to any network or point of presence (PoP) of their choice. The solution also enables zero-touch provisioning, allowing an enterprise to set-up a global network and connect to the cloud in minutes. Simplified ongoing network management provides the ability to make network or business/application policy changes with just a few clicks. Additionally, Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution natively and seamlessly integrates with third party network security vendors, including the Zscaler cloud security platform to dramatically streamline networking and security, providing the level of agility required for the modern enterprise.
“In a recent spending intentions survey, ESG found that 68% of responding IT organizations reported having a more complex IT environment driven by many factors – higher numbers of remote and mobile users, increase in the number and types of applications accessed and the need to connect to both on-premises and public cloud data centers. This increased complexity makes it difficult for digitally-driven organizations to maintain their business agility, and they need to ensure that they are supporting business demands with a modern network infrastructure to enable secure application delivery,” said Alex Arcilla, Validation Analyst, at Enterprise Strategy Group. “The latest SD-WAN release from Riverbed seamlessly addresses these issues of network complexity, delivering both advanced SD-WAN and enterprise-class routing capabilities. This allows organizations to easily define and implement policies as well as automate connectivity across their entire network in order to maximize network agility from the data center to the edge to the cloud.”
