With this agreement, Aptec will distribute Riverbed products to resellers in selected countries in the Middle East.
The Riverbed family of wide area network (WAN) optimisation solutions liberates businesses from common IT constraints by increasing application performance, enabling consolidation, and providing enterprise-wide network and application visibility – all while eliminating the need to increase bandwidth, storage or servers.
“As applications and technologies become more bandwidth intensive, IT decision makers are seeking ways to improve application performance over the WAN rather than investing in additional bandwidth capacity.
Riverbed can make a big difference for organisations and, after looking at the potential, we have decided to distribute Riverbed in the region. We will ensure that we have the right mix of trained partners to address the market demand,” said Bahaa Salah, MD at Aptec Distribution.
Aptec will be conducting focused road shows and seminars in the UAE and GCC countries in coming months to educate and train resellers on Riverbed products and technologies.
Aptec Holdings, a technology distributor in the Middle East, Pakistan, Turkey and Africa, has announced that it has signed an authorised distribution agreement with Riverbed Technology, a WAN optimisation company.
