For many government agencies, the need for effective network monitoring has become more important than ever. From advancing network reliability for enhancing cybersecurity to developing a real-time understanding of the IT network environment, high-performance networks are vital to mission success.

Last year Riverbed advanced this concept one step further. With its acquisition of Aternity, government agencies can monitor the performance of applications on physical and mobile end-user devices.

Added to Riverbed’s SteelCentral portfolio, this solution provides the end-to-end visibility enterprises need to ensure that digital transformation initiatives like cloud, mobile, and virtualization pay off from the point of consumption, which is the user’s device.

“With the increased use of mobile devices, virtual desktop environments and the cloud, the ability to manage end user experience has become more important and complex for IT organizations,” said Jerry M. Kennelly, Riverbed Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, in this press release.  “With this acquisition, Riverbed and our partners are now uniquely positioned to provide CIOs and businesses with a complete view across networks, applications and end users, all in one solution.”

In April, Affigent hosted a webinar that highlighted how Aternity can improve workforce productivity and customer service, diagnose and trouble shoot end-user experience issues, and compare end-user experience to baseline metrics.

In addition, Aternity has been adopted by key agencies within the Civilian, DoD, and Intelligence Community sectors, including OSD/WHS, U.S. Army ITA, Joint Services Provider Pentagon, USAF, DIA, NGA, ODNI and Veterans Affairs.

To understand what is happening on the endpoint and the related applications, performance is often judged by how the end user is impacted, which can negatively impact productivity and mission success. This is why solutions like Aternity are critical to helping government remain effective in the near and long term.
