Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the leader in application performance infrastructure, today announced its position as a “Leader” in Gartner’s introductory 2014 “Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD).” This is the third Gartner Magic Quadrant in which Riverbed has been recognized as a leader, including the Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and WAN Optimization Controllers Magic Quadrants.
“As applications continue to become increasingly complex and distributed, it is absolutely essential to have a holistic operational view of application performance, from the end-user, through the network and infrastructure, and deep into the actual application components and code. Only Riverbed delivers this complete performance picture, and only Riverbed can also accelerate poorly performing applications,” said Paul Brady, General Manager of the Riverbed Performance Management business unit at Riverbed. “This new NPMD market and our leadership position validates Riverbed’s vision and the dramatic shift toward application-centric performance management occurring in IT.”According to Gartner, organizations are demanding insight beyond traditional availability tools to address the acute monitoring needs of network environments.
