TEL AVIV, Israel & MENLO PARK, Calif. – January 12, 2009 – Crescendo Networks, Ltd., the recognized performance leader in Web application acceleration and optimization, today announced that the company has partnered with Riverbed Technology to deliver complete end-to-end application acceleration for customers looking to improve performance within their corporate network, as well as end user performance for external users. By combining Crescendo's AppBeat DC, which accelerates web applications for users accessing them outside of the corporate network, with Riverbed® Steelhead® appliances, which accelerate applications over the corporate wide area network (WAN), the two companies are able to provide faster application performance, availability and stability across the WAN to branch offices as well as to users outside the corporate network.

“Customers that deploy Riverbed Steelhead appliances with Crescendo’s AppBeat DC can extend the benefits that Riverbed provides for users within the corporate network to users outside of the corporate network by accelerating applications over the WAN for employees and users accessing web applications externally,” said Venugopal Pai, senior director of Alliances at Riverbed. “This allows enterprises to deliver optimal application performance for all users.”

Riverbed offers a complete WAN optimization solution that accelerates applications and data for remote offices, data centers, and mobile workers across WANs, accelerating access to applications and data up to 100 times faster. The speed delivered by Riverbed solutions allows organizations to be more nimble, flexible and competitive by enabling IT consolidation without sacrificing user performance, allowing higher productivity for remote offices, eliminating end user frustration caused by slow applications, dramatically shortening backup and replication times, reducing traffic on WANs, and even enabling significant improvements in mobile worker productivity.

“As an HR outsourcing leader that continues on a path of fast-paced national expansion, reliable and efficient application performance is absolutely essential,” said Rich Goddu, Director of Network and Systems at TriNet. “We use Riverbed Steelhead appliances combined with Crescendo Networks’ AppBeat solutions to deliver optimal application performance to both our internal team and end-user customers.”

AppBeat DC provides high availability, scalability, acceleration and optimization for Web applications. Unlike competing solutions, AppBeat DC leverages the industry’s only purpose-built platform, uniquely designed for maximum performance and feature concurrency. By offloading servers from process-intensive tasks and optimizing the delivery of the application to users, AppBeat DC significantly improves overall application performance, security and availability while reducing datacenter costs.

“Crescendo is so pleased to be working with a partner like Riverbed,” added Adoram Ga’ash, CEO of Crescendo Networks. “Our products provide customers with the most resilient and stable application performance, thus providing their end-users with the best experience possible.”
