Riverbed and Zscaler First to Deliver Unified Cloud Networking and Security Solution

Seamless integration of Riverbed SteelConnect SD-WAN and Zscaler cloud security platform


Riverbed Technology announced a joint solution with Zscaler, a leader in cloud security, to enable organizations to securely transform to the cloud.

The seamless integration of Riverbed’s cloud networking and software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) solution, SteelConnect, with the Zscaler cloud security platform, enables enterprises to accelerate the adoption of cloud and incorporate Internet broadband-based transport in branch and remote office business locations without compromising network security.

This unified solution provides a powerful combination that delivers greater business agility, better user experience and lower costs – all while ensuring advanced protection for networks and end-users. In New York City, both companies will participate in Riverbed Disrupt– an event focused on accelerating cloud adoption and digital transformation – where executives will present and demonstrate the joint solution to an exclusive group of industry leaders and CIOs.

Enterprises are rapidly moving to the cloud to capitalize on the benefits of digital transformation. However, legacy network infrastructure and security approaches are becoming increasingly irrelevant in a cloud and mobile-first world. In addition, legacy hardware approaches are complex, labor intensive to manage, and difficult to maintain, while security approaches that backhaul all Internet-bound traffic into data centers compromise performance and end-user experience.

To address these challenges, businesses are transitioning from legacy hardware to a new software-defined and cloud-centric networking approach in order to achieve greater IT agility, a faster pace of innovation and lower costs, as businesses increasingly succeed or fail based on their IT outcomes.
