Riverbed SaaS Accelerator should accelerate performance SaaS apps

Riverbed has unveiled its new SaaS Accelerator. With this solution, the performance of SaaS apps such as Office 365, Salesforce and Box should be accelerated by up to ten times. The solution can also be combined with End User Experience Monitoring to monitor and accelerate performance of SaaS-based enterprise applications.

The SaaS Accelerator can improve the user experience and business results for organizations with a distributed workforce, whose users are often far from the SaaS servers. The solution avoids performance differences and disruptions that disrupt an employee’s ability to remain connected, satisfied and productive.

The SaaS Accelerator can be set up as a cloud solution within minutes. Riverbed SD-WAN customers also get one-click provisioning thanks to the SD-WAN management console. Existing SteelHead devices and SteelHead Mobile customers can use their current investment when implementing SaaS Accelerator. The result is a comprehensive solution that covers everything from the end user’s device via the network to the SaaS application.

Businesses also get a security profile that requires all SaaS traffic to be backed up through a data center that is able to maintain the approach. Factors that hamper productivity for mobile and remote workers are reduced.


In addition to its SaaS Accelerator, Riverbed also announced improvements to its SD-WAN solutions and DEM offering.

The SD-WAN solutions, SteelConnect and SteelHead SD, get increased agility, security and efficiency with improvements in multi-cloud network automation, improved service chaining for on-premises and cloud-based security services. This version of SD-WAN also includes an integration with Zscaler, which provides a one-click integration to its security platform.

In addition, the DEM offer has been updated. The DEM offer is a solution to measure and manage the digital experience of end-users. The new release includes the introduction of an automatic recovery function, which should help to proactively identify and solve common problems before they affect the user experience or are escalated to support them.
