Founded in May of 2002, Riverbed develop products that improve application performance across wide area networks (WANs) – technique known as WAN optimisation. Riverbed products reduce latency and bandwidth constraints in delivering applications via WANs to multiple locations across long distances, as well as support network and application performance management.
Market leader Riverbed SteelHead has helped over 28,000 customers with WAN optimisation. In 2009, Riverbed became the first vendor to provide end-to-end visibility with Riverbed SteelCentral and it is still the only vendor of a product of this kind to this day.
In 2012 the company began providing hyper-converged infrastructure solutions designed specifically for remote offices through Riverbed Steelfusion. SteelConnect, another Riverbed product, allows enterprises to replace thousands of manually configured routers with virtual network designs based on less complex interfaces making use of SD-WAN
Riverbed’s SD-WAN (software-defined WAN) solution provides a powerful yet simple solution for designing, deploying and managing distributed networks for today’s cloud-connected enterprises.
