Riverbed Performance Management Solution Recognized as a Value Leader by EMA 
Only Vendor Awarded Best Virtualization Support for Extending
Application-Aware Visibility Into Virtual Computing and Application
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/13 --  Riverbed
Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the application performance company, today
announced that it has been named a "Value Leader" by the Enterprise
Management Associates (EMA) Radar(TM) report for Application-Aware
Network Performance Management (ANPM) Q1 2013. The Riverbed
Performance Management solution achieved the highest aggregate score
in total ANPM functionality for its richly integrated, scalable and
proactive application and network performance monitoring, analysis
and troubleshooting solutions. 
The EMA Radar(TM) for Application-Aware Network Performance
Management Q1 2013 report focuses on assessing and analyzing the
landscape of ANPM solutions available to the marketplace today. The
report looks specifically at core capabilities that network
engineers, managers and operators need in order to recognize,
characterize, troubleshoot and communicate application performance as
they transit the network. 
EMA's report singled out Riverbed with "Best Virtualization Support"
recognition for its solution's support of virtual computing and
virtualized application environments. Cited as "leading edge" by EMA,
a key differentiator for the Riverbed solution is the ability to
maintain visibility despite highly virtualized environments.
According to the report, competing ANPM offerings require both
additional features and significant configuration to provide the same
level of visibility into virtualized compute environments and
architectures that Riverbed Performance Management solutions deliver
"The span of capabilities within the Riverbed Performance Management
solution is among the best in the ANPM sector," said Jim Frey, vice
president of research, EMA. "Riverbed has put itself at the leading
edge and offers one of the stronger analytics engines in the industry
with real-time views for advanced performance monitoring. It's
exciting to see the progress Riverbed has made as the company
continues to integrate and advance the performance management suite
with Cascade
 and OPNET solutions." 
"Maintaining availability to critical applications while delivering
peak network performance is a challenge our customers and channel
partners face on a daily basis. As the number of applications
increases and virtualization expands across the environment, the need
for an integrated, efficient and value-based solution becomes even
more urgent. The combination that Riverbed Performance Management
brings with the Cascade and OPNET product lines allows us to deliver
that single solution for monitoring, troubleshooting and actually
fixing the application and network performance problems," said Paul
Brady, senior vice president and general manager, Riverbed
Performance Management business unit at Riverbed. "We're thrilled to
be recognized by EMA for our innovation and leadership in the
Application-Aware Network Performance Management market and our
industry-leading virtualization support. This momentum will continue
to support both enterprise and the mid-market customers and expand
our channel partner success."
