Riverbed Announces Console

SAN FRANCISCO -- Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the technology and market leader in wide-area data services (WDS), today introduced its Central Management Console (CMC) v5.0. The Riverbed(R) CMC simplifies the process of deploying, configuring, and managing Steelhead(R) appliances, while providing visibility into the underlying performance of applications running across the WAN. The enhancements to the CMC provide network administrators with hierarchical structuring of Steelhead appliances, new policy-based configuration, role-based administration and centralized security management.

"In today's distributed enterprise, networks play a vital role in delivering business-critical applications and services to end-users regardless of their location. Consequently, IT managers are under increased pressure to deliver these applications at the highest service level possible," said Tracy Corbo, Senior Analyst, Network and Service Management at IDC. "Application acceleration is only part of the story; in order for companies to realize the full benefits from their WAN application delivery they need enhanced monitoring and visibility into network traffic from a single management console."
