As enterprises evolve to adopt SD-WAN, the first question they encounter is how to smoothly migrate to the new architecture. Faisal Khan explains how SD-WAN should not just solve the connectivity issue but also make the networks simpler.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was Riverbed’s network security posture. At a recent Tech Field Day presentation, the company gave an overview of how they are addressing the increasingly complex world of security, and used the metaphor of the Roman Empire to frame their response. History buff Rich Stroffolino was fascinated by that framing, and breaks down the implication in this piece.

Riverbed is a well known name in the WAN optimization market, and increasingly in the SD-WAN space as well. The company recently acquired Xirrus.

Given the success Riverbed has had integrating Ocedo assets into their SteelHead line, I think the company is capable of moving into a new market.
