SteelCentral, is focused on enabling the best digital experience for end
users by providing organizations with comprehensive performance
management and monitoring – from the network, to apps and digital
services, to the end user’s experience on their devices.
With the latest release of SteelCentral, Riverbed introduced a new,
comprehensive approach to monitor cloud performance that enables
enterprises to monitor the digital experience of every application, in
any cloud environment. Riverbed introduced the first cloud NPM solution
that can both look broadly across cloud network traffic and deeply

Riverbed continued to address the challenges of hybrid IT, with
cloud-resident monitoring using its advanced agent capabilities, as well
as data source integrations with packet brokers and cloud service
providers. Riverbed added alert management capabilities and updated the
path analytics of its infrastructure monitoring solution. It also
integrated monitoring with its market-leading SD-WAN solution to
validate software-defined policy. Following the acquisition of security
analytics vendor FlowTraq, Riverbed launched the NPM Advanced Security
Module (ASM) that investigates and mitigates security threats that
bypass traditional perimeter defenses.
