Keynote Extends Reach with New Riverbed-Ready Technology Alliance Program
SAN MATEO, CA – Nov. 4, 2014 – Keynote, the global leader in mobile and web performance management analytics, today announced at Riverbed FORCE 2014 that it has joined the Riverbed®-Ready Technology Alliance program to bring new capabilities to Riverbed SteelCentral™ customers, expand the value and impact of Riverbed solutions in specific industries and markets, and help customers master the technical challenges of the hybrid enterprise. Integrating Keynote products with Riverbed SteelCentral solutions gives Keynote customers the ability to monitor applications inside and outside their firewall. Keynote can assure its customers that their Riverbed-Ready solutions are tested, verified, and supported.
Modern web application environments are increasingly complex due to an accelerated pace of change with cloud services, mobile devices, third party applications and network connections. Delivering superior performance and availability requires testing, monitoring, diagnosis, and control capabilities from the application origin all the way to the customer’s web browser or mobile device. By combining the Keynote load testing and monitoring solutions with Riverbed SteelCentral, IT operations teams can better prepare and manage the infrastructure, application, and network supporting their web and mobile initiatives.
The Riverbed-Ready program framework enables partners to extend the Riverbed Application Performance Platform, the most complete platform for analyzing, diagnosing, and resolving application, network, and end-user performance issues anywhere in the hybrid enterprise. Riverbed-Ready partners will focus in areas such as security, cloud and virtualization, business applications, network performance management, application performance management, networking, and storage. Partners can leverage Riverbed open APIs and additional development tools to help with customization, integration, and automation.
“Through the new Riverbed-Ready program, we work with Riverbed to deliver solutions that help customers deliver applications and data in ways that best serve the business while not compromising performance,” said Steve Gross, vice president of business development at Keynote. “Keynote and Riverbed are delivering solutions that help our customers’ hybrid enterprises perform at their peak.”
