CBE Group Selects Riverbed

Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: RVBD), the technology and market leader in
wide-area data services (WDS), today announced that The CBE Group
Inc. has selected and successfully deployed Riverbed's Steelhead(R)
appliances across its sites in the Midwestern United States to
accelerate user access to their customized MS SQL-based accounting
application across multiple sites.

The CBE Group, Inc. (CBE) is a privately owned accounts receivable
management company that has been in the credit information and
accounts receivable management business since 1933, serving
organizations throughout the United States including healthcare
organizations; financial services companies; guaranteed student loan
agencies; colleges and universities; satellite, cable, and
telecommunication companies; utilities and governmental agencies. CBE
is dedicated to helping clients achieve their goals with proven
solutions, industry best practices and an unwavering commitment to
client service.

CBE was initially looking to do an expensive bandwidth upgrade
between call centers located across Iowa because user access to its
MS SQL-based accounting application had become slow. After
investigating several options, it became clear that adding more
bandwidth would not be sufficient to speed access to their in-house
accounting application.

"After doing our own research on wide-area data services solutions,
we narrowed the field to Riverbed(R), Juniper and Cisco," said
Wolfgang Weiss Jr., manager of IT Infrastructure, CBE Group, Inc. "In
a head-to-head evaluation in our labs, Riverbed was the clear winner,
based on performance and ease of installation and management. The
Riverbed Steelhead solution delivered 87 percent data reduction
across the WAN and 8x acceleration of our accounting application,
which was very well received by our remote workers."
