Riverbed announced the results of the ESG (Enterprise Strategy Group) technical evaluation that tested Riverbed Application Acceleration Services in environments that emulate a modern, distributed organization providing core collaboration services via SaaS to employees across multiple locations worldwide. The ESG report findings concluded, through hands-on testing and actual production use across 13 global locations, that Riverbed application acceleration solutions provide significant data reduction in file transfer and consistent acceleration of widely used SaaS applications such as Microsoft O365 and Salesforce. As more companies continue to provide broader flexibility for employees to work from anywhere, organizations can run Riverbed solutions unnoticed in the background to optimize performance and productivity for remote users, regardless of location, bandwidth or latency, often rivaling the experience achieved previously with in-office local access.

The ESG report validated how Riverbed’s solutions, SaaS Accelerator and Client Accelerator, significantly and consistently accelerate data transfers to and from SaaS applications from anywhere across the globe. The testing concluded that Riverbed significantly accelerated Microsoft O365 in every region tested. In many cases, the report noted file transfers that previously took minutes were reduced to seconds. This included reductions in file transfer times ranging from 79.2% in London to 89.3% in Dubai in the EMEA region; from 73.4% in New Delhi to 89.6% in Tokyo in APJ; and an average of 79% across the five U.S. cities tested: San Francisco, CA; Brisbane, CA; Nashua, NH; Brimfield, MA and Franklin, MA. Overall, ESG found that organizations deploying Riverbed technology at scale could greatly benefit from both enhanced productivity and improved user experience while saving valuable hours of time for every user. Additionally, ESG found data reduction was remarkably consistent across all sites, averaging nearly 81% globally.
An on-demand webinar featuring ESG discussing the results of the technical evaluation will be available on the Riverbed Work From Anywhere Solutions site beginning on July 9.
