Enterprise IT teams are tasked with ensuring business applications are readily available. But for work-from-home and remote employees, the unpredictability of network and application performance dramatically increases.

They face unique issues–poor network stability and saturated local connections due to simultaneous access of bandwidth-intensive collaboration apps like video streaming and large file sharing – all of which negatively impact workforce productivity.

Riverbed helps enterprises address the productivity challenges these workers encounter, maximizing application performance through massive data reduction and latency mitigation across networks. Workforces can stay productive anywhere, anytime with fast, consistent, and available applications they need to get work done.
