Riverbed to showcase how enterprises can unlock digital performance Potential at GITEX


Riverbed, The Digital Performance Company, is set to make yet another impactful appearance at GITEX Technology Week where it will showcase next-generation infrastructure solutions that enhance IT performance, driving business agility and digital performance for today’s hybrid enterprises.

The company is set to highlight the latest upgrades to its Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN), Application Acceleration (including the new SaaS Accelerator) and Network Performance Management (NPM) solutions which together form its Digital Networking portfolio.

Earlier this year, Riverbed unveiled its new brand identity centred around ‘Advancing the Human Experience in the Digital World’. Highlighting how the official theme for this year’s GITEX – Synergising the Mind and Technology Economy – closely parallels this vision, Mena Migally, Senior Director, Middle East, at Riverbed, said, “While technology is undoubtably the fundamental enabler of business today, organizations must remember that behind every digital experience is a human experience. Organizations must therefore maximize digital performance to enable more compelling human experiences – for employees, customers, partners, patients or citizens.”

“Riverbed isn’t just a technology provider, but rather an enabler of digital transformation for the modern enterprise. At GITEX, we look forward to engaging with attendees and demonstrating how the solutions we provide can maximize digital performance, eliminate ‘IT slowness’ and thus enable superior digital experiences – for customers as well as employees,” added Migally.

With over 1,000+ deployments, Riverbed SD-WAN is quickly replacing traditional Wide Area Networks (WANs) as more enterprises realize the need to rethink their ever-increasingly complex network environment for today’s cloud-centric and digital world. Riverbed offers the industry’s most complete and powerful SD-WAN portfolio, which addresses the needs of mid-market organizations and scales to the requirements of the world’s largest enterprises. Having recently signed a global original equipment manufacturing (OEM) agreement with Versa Networks, Riverbed is offering new enterprise SD-WAN solutions that deliver high scalability, along with a full stack of enterprise and carrier-grade routing and advanced network security capabilities.

Another focal aspect of Riverbed’s participation at the show is SaaS Acceleration.  Within the next two years, 73% of companies are expected to run almost entirely on Solution-as-a-Service (SaaS). The new Riverbed SaaS Accelerator is the first and only software solution to accelerate SaaS performance by up to 10 times, for apps such as Office 365, Salesforce, Box and ServiceNowSaaS Accelerator is also a SaaS solution, enabling customers to turn up the service within minutes so they can benefit immediately from improved performance.

To compliment these showcases, Riverbed will also highlight its NPM solution which integrates Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) polling, flow, packet capture and other capabilities to provide a comprehensive enterprise-wide view of performance in hybrid IT environments.

Riverbed’s stand will once again feature prominently at GITEX, with its location on the show’s central concourse (Concourse 2 Stand: CC2-6). Similarly, to previous editions of the show, the company will demonstrate its strong commitment to the channel through its presence at the stands of a few regional distribution partners.
