SAN FRANCISCO -- Riverbed Technology (Nasdaq: RVBD), the technology and market leader in wide-area data services (WDS), today announced the upcoming release of enhanced versions of its Riverbed Optimization System (RiOS), Steelhead Mobile and Riverbed Services Platform (RSP), which together will provide enterprises with the most comprehensive solution for application acceleration and cost savings across the data center, branch office, and mobile worker. With these releases, Riverbed enables enterprises to further consolidate IT infrastructure, enhance worker productivity and accelerate data protection, helping CIOs support a more efficient workforce and IT environment while reducing operational and financial investment.

Riverbed® continues to innovate in areas that directly impact bottom lines. To help customers make the most of their existing infrastructure, Riverbed has focused beyond its core product offerings with enhancements to its Riverbed Services Platform (RSP), the industry’s first integrated platform for third-party software modules, built on enterprise-class virtualization technology from VMware. Riverbed also introduces a set of industry firsts for WAN optimization, accelerating Lotus Notes and MAPI encrypted traffic at the application layer, as well as MAPI 2007 and Oracle Forms for mobile workers. Each of these enhancements is a direct result of the ongoing, in-depth relationships Riverbed has with key partners, including VMware and Microsoft. In addition, Riverbed broadens its solutions to provide faster, more cost-effective replication and backup among data centers.

“Riverbed focuses on providing tools to our customers that help them save money immediately, while meeting the strategic requirements of their businesses. Our development priorities come directly from ongoing dialogue with customers to better understand their needs as they are forced to do more with less,” said John Martin, vice president of product management at Riverbed. “We anticipate that customers will continue to look to Riverbed to deliver industry firsts such as the RSP, which help drive infrastructure costs down, enhance the productivity of the workforce, and enable business to be more resilient in times of change.”
