Application performance solutions provider Riverbed Technology has launched a joint solution with cloud security company Zscaler designed to enable organisations to securely transform to the cloud.

The two companies say the integration of Riverbed’s cloud networking and software-defined wide-area networking solution, SteelConnect, with the Zscaler cloud security platform, enables enterprises to accelerate the adoption of cloud and incorporate Internet broadband-based transport in branch and remote office business locations without compromising network security.

“Enterprises are in the midst of a major transition from legacy, hardware-based approaches to software-defined networking in order to keep pace with changing business needs in today’s cloud-first world. However, as today’s hybrid IT landscape becomes more distributed, managing and securing enterprise networks have introduced new challenges,” said Jerry Kennelly, chairman and chief executive of Riverbed Technology.

“With native, seamless integration of Zscaler security with Riverbed SteelConnect, businesses can now leverage the simplicity of policy-based network orchestration with the power and reach of cloud-based security across remote business locations.”

“The rise of cloud and mobile technologies has challenged enterprises to evolve perimeter-centric networking and security approaches that no longer serve them,” says Jay Chaudhry, chief executive and founder of Zscaler.

“The seamless integration of Zscaler’s cloud security platform with Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution lets companies securely adopt a cloud-first strategy, simplifying branch operations while achieving unrivaled performance, agility, and control.”

According to Riverbed and Zscaler, enterprises are rapidly moving to the cloud to capitalise on the benefits of digital transformation.

“However, legacy network infrastructure and security approaches are becoming increasingly irrelevant in a cloud and mobile-first world. In addition, legacy hardware approaches are complex, labour intensive to manage, and difficult to maintain, while security approaches that backhaul all Internet-bound traffic into data centers compromise performance and end-user experience.

“To address these challenges, businesses are transitioning from legacy hardware to a new software-defined and cloud-centric networking approach in order to achieve greater IT agility, a faster pace of innovation and lower costs, as businesses increasingly succeed or fail based on their IT outcomes,” the companies say.
