McAfee, Riverbed extend partnership to provide Web 2.0 capabilities

To deliver accelerated data and application access to users while protecting critical information

By CBR Staff Writer

McAfee and Riverbed Technology, an IT performance firm, have expanded their partnership to provide Web 2.0 security capabilities on the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP), and deliver security along with wide area network (WAN) optimisation offerings for distributed enterprises.

The McAfee Web Gateway offering provides security for all Web 2.0 traffic, while Riverbed Steelhead appliance enables proactive Web 2.0 protection from headquarters to branch offices.

The company said that the RSP is a virtualised, extensible data services platform integrated with the Steelhead appliance hardware that allows customers to deploy multiple services, and enables customers to deploy virtualised applications, such as McAfee Web Gateway Security, directly on the RSP.

The new joint offering complements the existing McAfee Firewall Enterprise software, which is currently available on the RSP.

In addition, by leveraging the offerings from McAfee and Riverbed in a single appliance, enterprises can deliver accelerated data and application access to users while protecting critical information and infrastructure from security threats.

McAfee senior vice president of worldwide strategic alliances David Scholtz said that by adding McAfee Web Gateway to the Riverbed and McAfee Enterprise Firewall offering, customers now have the most comprehensive security offering in a WAN optimisation platform available.
