IT Security Specialist Help AG Gives Visibility to Enterprise Customers with Riverbed Network Performance Management Solution

Help AG, the IT security specialists, has signed a reseller agreement with Riverbed Technology, the IT performance company. As a reseller in the Riverbed® Partner Network (RPN), Help AG will be able to resell the entire Riverbed product portfolio and plans to focus heavily on delivering the Riverbed Cascade® network performance management (NPM) solution to enterprise customers. With Riverbed Cascade, Help AG has a new offering to help enterprises better understand their network traffic that also compliments its core consultancy services of security tests and systems health checks.

Riverbed Cascade provides customers with enterprise-wide application performance analysis, discovery and dependency mapping as well as proactive alerts on network and application performance bottlenecks. Cascade collects network traffic data and provides an application-level view of all network resources and locations, giving network administrators the business context they need to monitor critical IT services and provide executive-level reporting. With Cascade, enterprises are able to easily troubleshoot performance issues, dramatically reducing downtime for business-critical applications.

The agreement concentrates on the UAE and Qatar markets. The reseller partnership with Help AG is part of the Riverbed channel strategy to collaborate with partners in each of its country markets that can implement NPM and other performance solutions that help enterprise customers exceed IT goals.

Help AG was founded in Germany and deals mainly on IT security services and solutions. It entered the Middle East market in 2005 and has since become one of the most respected IT security specialists in the region. The independent, non-vendor-specific company currently employs approximately 28 consultants, and selects only best-of-breed products to complement their security offerings.

More than 13,000 organizations worldwide, across a wide range of markets, depend on Riverbed to understand, optimize and consolidate their IT infrastructure. Riverbed delivers hardware, software and virtualized solutions that overcome performance issues caused by distance, distributed computing, and ever increasing amounts of data.

Virtualization, consolidation and cloud computing promise huge cost savings and improved efficiencies, but as users move farther from their data, slow applications and file transfers can stall these strategic initiatives. Riverbed delivers to the remote office and mobile workers the same "local area network (LAN)-like" performance, no matter where the private data center or public cloud may be. Riverbed continues building on its success in the WAN optimization, application-aware NPM and data protection markets with new and innovative solutions for accelerating cloud storage and access to applications and data deployed in public, private and hybrid clouds.
