Riverbed® Technology, the leader in application performance infrastructure, announced that it has been recognised as a “Leader” in Gartner’s 2015 “Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD)” for the second consecutive year. According to Gartner, the Leaders quadrant represents vendors that are pushing the NPMD market forward, including those with comprehensive portfolios and the ability to handle multiple application and technology types. Riverbed is also recognised as a “Leader” in Gartner’s March 27, 2014 “Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers.”
“We are very pleased to be recognised as a ‘Leader’ in the Gartner NPMD Magic Quadrant for the second straight year,” said Mike Sargent, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the SteelCentral business unit at Riverbed. “Riverbed’s network performance monitoring and diagnostics solutions are a vital component of holistic performance management, providing visibility into and control over end-user experience, application, and network performance across today’s hybrid enterprises. Riverbed SteelCentral solutions deliver unparalleled breadth of visibility into application and network performance for both on-premise and SaaS applications and include comprehensive analytics and deep, fast troubleshooting capabilities to ensure applications perform as needed for the business.”
According to Gartner, NPMD, a subset of the overall network performance monitoring market, has emerged as a unique market designed to address these very needs in today's increasingly complex environments. NPMD tools provide this required breadth and depth of visibility in both real-time and historical perspectives by uniquely analyzing data from SNMP polling, flow-based technology and packet-based technology. At an estimated $1.1 billion, the NPMD market is a fast-growing segment of the larger network management space ($1.9 billion in 2013), and overlaps slightly with aspects of the application performance monitoring (APM) space ($2.4 billion in 2013).
SteelCentral performance management solutions are part of the Riverbed Application Performance Platform™, which gives CIOs unparalleled visibility to deliver, control, and optimize all IT resources across the hybrid enterprise.
