Riverbed Reports 48% Bookings Growth in the META Region


With the company enabling organizations in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region to successfully digitally transform and navigate the challenges of the post-pandemic world, Riverbed recently announced that it has experienced 48% year-on-year growth in bookings in 2021. This momentum follows the company’s ability to empower its customers to adapt to hybrid work and networks, multi-cloud environments, and modern application architectures.

Riverbed claimed that the META region has been a major growth market for the firm and where it has established itself as a key technology partner to leading enterprises, specifically in the banking, energy, oil & gas, and public sectors. Signaling the company’s deep commitment to its customers in the region, Dan Smoot, CEO at Riverbed, commenced his milestone global brand launch tour by visiting the full teams in Saudi Arabia and the UAE where he met with key customers and partners.

Dan Smoot, Riverbed president, and CEO explained stating: “Some of the most ambitious digital transformation projects in the world are being undertaken by Middle East organizations as they align with government initiatives that look to grow the digital and knowledge-based economy. As an enabler of delivering seamless digital experiences, Riverbed has been a long-standing partner to these pioneers and innovators.”

Dan further added: “In meeting with these organizations, I have gained some unique perspectives into their digital aspirations which in turn helps fuel our innovation as a technology provider. As Riverbed itself embarks on the next phase of its evolution, we are further strengthening our value proposition to customers through our industry-leading Acceleration and Unified Observability portfolios.”

Riverbed sources added that In April this year, it had launched its new brand identity, underpinned by the unveiling of its Unified Observability portfolio – Alluvio by Riverbed. This, jointly with Riverbed’s industry-leading Acceleration portfolio, empowers the firm in aiding its clients to illuminate and then accelerating every digital interaction, empowering the experience for users everywhere.

Riverbed claimed that with cloud computing experiencing significant growth in popularity and adoption in the META region since the onset of the pandemic, this month the company has begun a Beta for its cloud-native, SaaS-delivered Alluvio unified observability solution.

“Riverbed this year celebrates its 20-year anniversary and with our experienced leadership team, we’re driving strong market momentum through the technology innovations we continue to bring to market. We’re grateful to our customers who have enabled us to achieve these milestones and we are excited to embark on this next phase together,” concludes Smoot.
