“Riverbed is proud to be named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics for the fifth consecutive year and a Challenger again in the Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites,” said Mike Sargent, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Riverbed’s SteelCentral business unit. “We believe Riverbed maintained these positions due to our continued innovation, and the integration of a rich set of capabilities that make our NPMD and APM solutions truly unique in the marketplace. From our point of view, only Riverbed SteelCentral offers companies the comprehensive and deep visibility required to manage the digital experience on an end-to-end basis, from the end user’s device, across networks, infrastructure, and into the code to assure a great user experience with business-critical applications.”

Blog: Is Consistency Important?

Over the past year, Riverbed reengineered its NPMD solution and launched its new packet-based AppResponse 11 solution. The Company also delivered significant performance improvements to its flow-based analytics, and integrated EUE (end user experience) Monitoring from SteelCentral Aternity into network troubleshooting workflows, providing a more complete view of the digital user experience. Finally, Riverbed integrated SteelCentral NPMD more fully with Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution SteelConnect – the first and only SD-WAN solution that provides unified connectivity and policy-based orchestration spanning the entire distributed network – hybrid WAN, branch LAN/WLAN, data centers, and the cloud. These coupled with strong go-to-market execution contributed to SteelCentral’s continued leadership position.

Additionally, over the past year, Riverbed SteelCentral continued to deliver innovative functionality to address the increasing challenges faced by companies in monitoring application performance. Riverbed added rich end user experience visibility through integrated endpoint monitoring, coupled with tight integration with application aware network monitoring – both of which deliver significant differentiation versus its competitors. Riverbed SteelCentral also delivers its sophisticated functionality in both SaaS and on-premises delivery modes with a common user interface. Companies found that use cases requiring access to granular transaction trace data, as opposed to sampled or averaged data, were served well by Riverbed’s fine-grained data support in monitoring business critical applications.
