Riverbed WAN optimization solutions provide law firms with geographically dispersed offices the ability to efficiently share documents and information in a collaborative environment. As the legal profession generates a tremendous amount of digital data in the form of contracts, court filings, exhibits, briefs, and traditional office activity such as email, law firms cannot afford to have a slow or congested network impacting key engagements.

    streamlining can lead to increased productivity.
--  Consolidate data management -- Riverbed can centralize data stores
    while offering LAN-like access to users in private cloud or
    consolidated environments, disaster recovery locations, branch offices
    and remote sites, all while reducing bandwidth utilization.
    Consolidation results in a simplified IT infrastructure and can lead to
    a reduction in overall IT costs and improved throughput.
