The Application Performance Company

Applications are now the center of the business world. We rely on them to reach customers, build products, automate back-end business processes, and perform almost every task critical to business.

Application performance and availability not only make users happy – they’re also the most visible indicators that IT is doing its job right. That’s why the world’s leading organizations rely on Riverbed for fast, reliable applications.

Our products and solutions including WAN optimization, performance management, application delivery, and storage acceleration enable IT to both manage and accelerate performance.
