Riverbed, a provider of SD-WAN, application acceleration and digital experience management solutions, announced it has signed an OEM agreement with Versa Networks, a provider of SD-WAN technology, to deliver enterprise-class secure SD-WAN solutions to customers.
The agreement strengthens Riverbed’s presence in the SD-WAN market, and expands the company’s reach and ability to address larger and more complex enterprise SD-WAN deployments, the company said.
Riverbed will offer an expanded portfolio of SD-WAN solutions alongside Riverbed SteelConnect, which will now include a new enterprise offering leveraging Versa Network’s Secure Cloud IP software platform.
The new SD-WAN solution will deliver high scalability, a full stack of enterprise and carrier-grade routing and advanced network security capabilities, which complement Riverbed’s SD-WAN, application acceleration and digital experience management solutions, the company claims.
The solution now provides a complete family of offerings to meet the needs of all organizations – from the mid-market to the world’s largest enterprises.
“The agreement with Versa Networks allows Riverbed to provide our customers with a broader set of choices and address the modern networking needs of organizations of all types and sizes – large, medium and small, cloud-first, hybrid and traditional – across the globe,” said Paul Mountford, CEO at Riverbed.
Since the initial 2016 launch of Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution SteelConnect, Riverbed has grown its SD-WAN customer base to 1,000+ organizations all over the world.
Riverbed will continue to offer SteelConnect SD-WAN, and will leverage Versa Network’s technology for larger scale enterprise deployments, the company said.
