Simplify the Way You Deploy, Connect, and Manage IoT Infrastructure
Simplify the planning and management of IoT
While IoT promises many compelling outcomes, IT needs to be wary of issues surrounding legacy infrastructure, new security risks, and increased complexity that jeopardize initiatives. Specifically:
Legacy networks that become overloaded as IoT devices create additional data and traffic. Moreover, securing and managing networks becomes untenable when done router-by-router and by using multiple management tools.
Limited visibility into device-to-system communications. IT struggles to map new networks that include IoT infrastructure while maintaining compliance as topologies continually grow.
Managing explosive data growth. IoT applications must be able to access and analyze data in real-time, yet that data must remain protected from exfiltration or loss.
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.

Three Issues That Will Jeopardize Your IoT Initiatives
Make IoT networks more intelligent with cloud networking
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.
Ensure agile and scalable edge computing
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.
Tighter data and network security
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.
