OptimizationRiverbed has helped over 28,000 customers solve the world’s toughest application delivery challenges since they launched the first WAN optimization appliance in 2004, Riverbed® SteelHead™, which is still the market leader a dozen years later.

Unified Visibility. In 2009, they were an innovator in end-to-end visibility, with Riverbed® SteelCentral™, and have continued to innovate in end user, network and application performance analysis.

Software-defined Edge. In 2012, Riverbed was the first vendor to deliver the software-define the edge with Riverbed® SteelFusion™, the only hyper-converged infrastructure solution designed specifically for remote office and branch office (ROBO) environments and requirements.

Application-defined SD-WAN. In 2016, Riverbed was the first vendor to bring an application-defined approach to SD-WAN with Riverbed® SteelConnect™. The unique solution is already beginning to disrupt the legacy hardware-based network routing market with a unified software-defined connectivity environment that spans and integrates all enterprise networks, from cloud networks to hybrid WANs to remote LANs. SteelConnect allows enterprises to replace thousands of manually configured routers with virtual network designs based on plain-language business policies, instant, single-click provisioning into the cloud, zero-touch provisioning across the edge (i.e. an enterprise’s entire distributed landscape of remote facilities and branch offices), and easy orchestration of SLAs, QoS, and network changes.

Delivering high performance over long distances has been Riverbed’s focus since its inception in 2002.
