Riverbed Technology agreed to acquire Aternity, a provider of End User Experience (EUE) and application performance monitoring solutions.
Aternity helps enterprises see the entire user experience for any application running on any device, providing a user-centric, application performance experience vantage point. Aternity said it currently monitors more than 1.7 million mobile, virtual and desktop workforce endpoints. The company is based in Westborough, MA.
“Aternity is another exciting and strategic acquisition for Riverbed. Their innovative end user experience monitoring offering perfectly complements and extends our SteelCentral solutions,” said Jerry M. Kennelly, Riverbed Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “With the increased use of mobile devices, virtual desktop environments and the cloud, the ability to manage end user experience has become more important and complex for IT organizations. With this acquisition, Riverbed and our partners are now uniquely positioned to provide CIOs and businesses with a complete view across networks, applications and end users, all in one solution.”
The acquisition also follows Riverbed’s acquisition of leading SD-WAN provider Ocedo in January 2016, which enabled Riverbed to get to market faster with application-defined SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) solution SteelConnect in April. Additionally, Riverbed offers a comprehensive Application Performance Platform that delivers end-to-end visibility, optimization and control.
