Riverbed adds SaaS solutions that enhance performance and business outcomes
Company’s SaaS Accelerator and Client Accelerator solutions to help organisations rapidly implement remote workforce enablement platforms
Moueen Zahreddine, regional director MENA, Riverbed Technology discusses how Riverbed is enabling organisations tackle potential pitfalls as IT teams are rushed to implement remote working strategies
The current pandemic has put organisations under immense pressure to maintain business continuity while safeguarding the health and safety of their employees. For many, this has translated to the rapid roll-out of work-from-home policies and cloud has been instrumental in enabling this. However, to ensure optimum business operations, performance is more important than ever. Slow SaaS applications reduce workforce productivity and significantly impact organisations’ ability to execute in highly demanding times.
Riverbed is empowering IT teams to overcome such challenges with its Riverbed SaaS Accelerator and Riverbed Client Accelerator. Riverbed is offering complimentary 90-day Riverbed Client Accelerator trial licenses to all its existing customers worldwide.
By improving the performance of critical SaaS applications, organisations can not only address present challenges, but also set themselves up for long-term success with the ability to radically accelerate time to market, increase competitiveness and drive revenue growth.
“Given that our technology has the ability to greatly aid the success of these initiatives, we are keen to play our part in supporting customers. These solutions are purpose-built to facilitate fast, agile, secure delivery of SaaS applications to any user, anywhere, ensuring even the most far-flung and mobile employees stay productive and business continues. They can dramatically improve user experience and business outcomes by eliminating performance gaps and disruptions that interfere with an employee’s ability to stay connected, satisfied and productive,” Moueen Zahreddine, regional director, MENA, at Riverbed Technology.
In remote working scenarios, performance of applications can be impacted by several factors such as the reliability and bandwidth of employee’s home Internet connections, the need to utilize additional security related technologies such as VPNs, or even latency that could be introduced by having to backhaul all SaaS traffic through a central data centre.
Zahreddine adds that Riverbed SaaS Accelerator and Client Accelerator solutions address the key challenge organisations are presently facing – which is the need to rapidly implement their remote workforce enablement platforms.
“The Riverbed SaaS Accelerator and Client Accelerator can optimize at-home network connections to achieve up to 99% data reduction while delivering 10x faster, reliable performance of cloud, on-prem, and SaaS apps,” he added.
From a security standpoint, the SaaS Accelerator supports the backhauling of traffic to the data centre, enabling organisations to maintain their security posture while largely ameliorating any performance penalty incurred by backhauling SaaS traffic.
To take up the 90-day Riverbed Client Accelerator trial license offer, customers simply need to get in touch with their local Riverbed representative or visit the website page here.
