Teneo uses Riverbed’s help for Visibility-as-a-Service

06 October 2017

Teneo and Riverbed have developed Visibility-as-a-Service (VaaS) which they claim sets new standards for application, network and end user performance insights and problem-solving. 

The new round the clock service is available as a worldwide offering, delivering a single view of business-critical application health.

Teneo reckons it speeds up regional or local troubleshooting needs, and overcomes ‘siloed’ or supplier performance reporting limitations, to any organisation’s individual requirements

Utilising key components of Riverbed’s SteelCentral portfolio, the new platform complements Teneo’s existing global networking services that include what’s said to be a unique application-defined SD-WAN capability supported by Riverbed SteelConnect.
