Riverbed Cloud-Based Application Acceleration Solutions First to Boost Performance of Microsoft Collaboration and Video Applications

Riverbed announced today that it is adding new cloud-based offerings into its arsenal of Riverbed Application Acceleration Solutions, all specifically built to help significantly accelerate and provide a consistent user experience for leading Microsoft collaboration, productivity and video streaming applications.

As companies continue to provide broader flexibility for employees to work from anywhere, organizations can run Riverbed’s flexible SaaS offerings to optimize performance and productivity for leading SaaS apps across multiple office locations and for remote users regardless of location, bandwidth or latency.

“With the overwhelming industry shift to SaaS applications and expected growth in hybrid work environments long-term even after COVID-19, there is a surge in enterprises using collaboration suites such as Microsoft O365 and leveraging video communications with Microsoft Teams and Stream for global employee engagement and collaboration. While these tools help companies to quickly scale and connect workforces that may be working from anywhere, in or outside the office, the value enterprises are able to achieve from these SaaS investments can be limited by the networks that connect us,” said Dante Malagrino, Chief Development Officer at Riverbed. “Riverbed’s Application Acceleration Solutions are flexible to suit the varying needs of today’s enterprises, and can be deployed immediately to augment the most popular Microsoft application suites and relieve the IT pain and productivity slowdowns caused by network latency, data congestion and overall connectivity.” […]
