Digital transformation is challenging enterprises to rethink their networking infrastructure. Traditional approaches are no longer meeting business needs in the era of cloud and mobility. The way networks are built and managed take far too long, are error-prone, and can’t deliver the performance today’s employees and customers demand.
Riverbed can improve the way you deliver applications to move with greater speed and agility. Our solution simplifies the design, implementation, and administration of enterprise networks. It also enables you to remotely deploy and manage the network services needed to power any business location and deliver exceptional experiences to any user.
Riverbed digital networking consists of:
Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) – Unify connectivity across WANs, the Cloud, and local networks
Application Acceleration – Speed data transfers through network bottlenecks and lessen the impact of latency
Network performance management – Provide visibility throughout the network and infrastructure to proactively identify and fix issues before they effect the business
Raising the Bar on Enterprise SD-WAN
Get best-in-class routing, performance & security at scale
Deploy an SD-WAN solution that greatly simplifies management of the entire enterprise network including hybrid clouds, WANs, and local networks. Control thousands of devices from a central, cloud-based GUI console. Implement changes quickly and consistently across the network with automation.
Find the right balance between cost, reliability, and performance for a diverse mix of application traffic running over a hybrid WAN. SD-WAN makes this possible with application-aware, policy-based management and dynamic path steering.
Rapidly expand infrastructure
Keep up with changing business needs—more sites, endpoints, and bandwidth. Design network additions using shadow appliances before shipping equipment. Then use centrally-orchestrated workflows to set up new Wi-Fi access points and WAN gateways at remote locations without the need for onsite IT personnel.
Automatically apply operational rules aligned with global policies for security and performance management to new devices. Securely connect sites to AWS, Azure, and other enterprise sites with just a few clicks.
Deliver excellent performance
Simultaneously monitor the performance of networks, infrastructure, applications, and end-user devices. Then view the correlated data in a single console to find and fix problems before end users are impacted.
Improve the performance of critical applications by writing policies that give them priority across the entire network using quality-of-service and dynamic path steering. And overcome bandwidth constraints and latency with application acceleration that boosts the performance of any app—SaaS, IaaS and on-prem—to any user, anywhere.
GHD needed a simple, cost-effective solution to enable the rapid deployment of 50 new sites.
When global professional services company GHD merged with North American engineering consultancy Conestoga-Rovers and Associates (CRA), it added more than 3,000 employees in 100 offices, including 50 small sites. They needed a simple, cost-effective solution to enable the rapid deployment of those new sites onto the company’s network. Riverbed SteelConnect has helped GHD achieve this, fueling stronger collaboration amongst its project teams spread across the globe, business agility and cost savings of an anticipated USD 1 million a year.
We’ve been totally impressed with the performance we’ve been able to deliver using the Riverbed platform. It’s been a powerful enabler of our digital transformation strategy, empowering me and my team to deliver tangible outcomes for the business,” said Gharge. “In an industry where competition is stiff – and being at the forefront is critical – this is everything
