Riverbed To Acquire Aternity To Bolster End-To-End Digital Visibility

Today, Riverbed Technology announced that it is acquiring privately-held Aternity. Aternity provides end-user experience (EUE) solutions as part of a broader application performance monitoring (APM) offering. The deal is expected to close in August 2016, and the financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The acquisition will extend the reach of Riverbed’s SteelCentral performance monitoring solutions into end-user devices, rounding out an end-to-end solution that is critical for enterprise digital efforts.

The Aternity solution leverages agents on end-user devices that monitor millions of mobile, virtual, and desktop endpoints across 160 enterprise customers. This technology analyzes end-user perception of availability, latency, execution, and overall quality. As a result, Aternity provides an understanding of enterprise end-users and their interactions in the context of business processes.

Riverbed SteelCentral already offers visibility into network traffic via telemetry from unified communications platforms, wide-area networks (WANs), and network devices. The solution also monitors application performance via application server telemetry and application code, as well as performance data from browsers.

Aternity will add end-user device telemetry to this mix, providing critical user data for situations where browser data is insufficient, for example, when users are interacting with mobile apps.
