Using Riverbed ®, GSK experienced a 50 percent decrease in overall network traffic.


  • Improved network performance to accommodate new messaging platform

Headquartered in the United Kingdom, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is Europe's largest pharmaceutical manufacturer and the third largest company of its kind in the world. When GSK decided to move its internally hosted messaging infrastructure to an externally hosted Microsoft platform, improving the performance of its network and collaboration environment was a core requirement.

GSK turned to Riverbed to meet this critical demand. With Riverbed, GSK has not only been able to reduce traffic, but has also gained complete visibility into network performance across the enterprise.
