Riverbed Technology and Juniper Networks Combat Public Cloud Security Concerns

The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on Riverbed Technology & Juniper Networks

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 2, 2011) - Companies are increasingly looking to cloud computing environments in order to accelerate value in business financials and reduce costs. Cloud computing is highly appealing to today's organizations, not only because of its projected cost savings but also because of the cloud's flexibility. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Networking & Communications Devices Industry and provides equity research on Riverbed Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: RVBD) and Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR). Access to the full company reports can be found at:

Management Today reports that 37 percent of firms surveyed say they will transfer in excess of 60 percent of their applications to a private cloud environment in the future. While large corporations and businesses are rapidly bringing their applications to the private cloud, co-existing with a public cloud has not been appealing to these organizations. The report finds that a mere 6 percent of those surveyed intend on moving to the full public cloud, based on security concerns.

Riverbed Technology argues that its "Whitewater" public cloud storage gateway for data protection "overcomes these (security) concerns and makes public cloud storage a compelling option for backup and archiving." Earlier this summer Riverbed upgraded its Whitewater Appliances with two new small- to medium-sized business (SMB) models and a midrange device.

Earlier this year Juniper Networks put to use its acquisition of Altor Networks with the integration of its vGW Virtual Gateway and its SRX Series Services Gateways. Juniper claims it provides a consistent, virtualization-aware solution for private and public cloud deployments.
