Riverbed Positioned as Champion in Info-Tech Research Group's
Application Delivery Controller Vendor Landscape Report 
Stingray Traffic Manager Software Receives Top Honor for Its
Excellent Value and Seamless Deployment Into Physical, Virtual, or
Cloud Environments 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 --  Riverbed Technology
(NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced its
Riverbed(R) Stingray(TM) product family has been positioned as
Champion in Info-Tech Research Group's 2012 Vendor Landscape:
Application Delivery Controllers (ADC). The Stingray product family
is recognized for its flexibility and ease of deployment into any
physical, virtual, or cloud environment due to its software and
virtual form factors. As a Champion in the report, Riverbed is
honored for offering customers excellent value, having a strong
market presence, and being an industry trendsetter. 
"With the industry transitioning to multi-cloud deployments,
sophisticated software-defined data centers (SDDC), and enhanced Web
performance, organizations need a cloud-aware software ADC that fits
seamlessly into these environments," said Apurva Dave, vice president
of Products and Marketing, Stingray Business Unit at Riverbed. "Our
performance solutions are developed from the ground up with the
flexibility to fit into the ever-changing IT architecture of the
future. Info-Tech Research Group recognizing us as a leader in the
ADC market signifies the value that Stingray Traffic Manager software
provides to enterprises by delivering the performance, flexibility,
and scalability to keep organizations competitive."  
The Riverbed Stingray product family includes the Stingray Traffic
Manager software ADC, Stingray Aptimizer Web content optimization
(WCO) that further speeds Web application response times, and
Stingray Web Application Firewall that provides advanced
application-level protection capabilities. Info-Tech highlighted
several key differentiators of the Stingray product family when
awarding it the Champion position, including the custom scripting
capability with Stingray TrafficScript that provides organizations
with granular control over their applications, advanced features such
as WCO, and the deep application-level security capabilities.  
"When we started our search for an advanced load balancing and
traffic management solution, we wanted to avoid investing in hardware
appliances. We had made such a concerted effort to eliminate hardware
from our infrastructure and move to a fully virtualized environment.
We definitely did not want traditional appliances to pull us backward
to a hardware-based environment. Riverbed was clearly the only vendor
that could leverage our fully virtual environment to be optimized 100
percent of the time," said William Moore, executive vice president
and chief technology officer, CareCore National. "Deploying the
Riverbed vADC solution has been extremely impactful to CareCore, and
from our investment we made significant cost savings and increases in
revenue. There is no question that the success of CareCore is
beholden to its Web services. Integrating Riverbed has provided us
with the reliability and accessibility that has been a lifeline to
our skyrocketing growth and success." 
Riverbed Drives Innovation, Puts Performance First with ADC
 In June
2012, Riverbed launched Stingray Traffic Manager 9.0, the industry's
only ADC with comprehensive WCO capability. Incorporating Stingray
Aptimizer software with Stingray Traffic Manager software accelerates
Web application response time for mobile devices and browsers. In
addition, the software improves business results from a large range
of Web-based activities, including public websites, intranet portals,
and cloud applications. Stingray Traffic Manager software delivers to
organizations an accelerated user experience, scalable cloud
utilization, and the reliability expected from today's Web and
cloud-based applications. 
"Stingray Traffic Manager software is the ideal ADC to support SDDCs
as it can be deployed easily in any private, public, and hybrid cloud
environment to accelerate high performing multi-tier applications,"
added Dave. "Today, organizations require a next-generation ADC that
is as dynamic as the application, can apply application specific
optimizations and policies, and can deliver advanced layer 7 features
and services. Stingray Traffic Manager software also enables
customers to create, manage, and deliver critical online services
more quickly, flexibly, securely, and at a lower cost."
