This designation will mean that SteelConnect provides a simple, easy and intuitive Office 365 configuration UX, with default settings directly and automatically facilitating Office 365 connectivity principles. Per the program requirements, the Riverbed SD-WAN offering also:

- Provides features that are based on Microsoft supported and recommended Microsoft APIs

“Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution, SteelConnect, provides Microsoft applications customers a choice that meets our stringent requirements, and Riverbed is working with Microsoft on validation through the Networking Partner Program,” said Seth Patton, GM at Microsoft. “Riverbed SteelConnect is ideal for enterprises transforming their business applications to the cloud since it enables direct and local Internet connectivity per our networking principles and delivers a high-quality user experience with a cloud-first approach to security.”

■ SteelCentral AppResponse Cloud for Azure: AppResponse Cloud now provides visibility into performance, cost, and security issues in the cloud by monitoring and troubleshooting Azure cloud applications and networks.
