Riverbed Technology announced the acquisition of CACE Technologies, the corporate sponsor of Wireshark, a popular network protocol analyzer. This acquisition adds state-of-the-art network traffic recording, analysis and inspection to Riverbed’s Cascade network and application visibility solution. As reported on Help Net Security, this combination makes Riverbed the only vendor with an end-to-end IT performance solution that allows customers to understand application performance over networks, optimize the performance of those applications and then consolidate their IT into private or public clouds.
“‘Riverbed understands the strong, independent and community-driven nature of Wireshark. We are dedicated to keeping Wireshark open and will continue with a strong commitment to the community as it continues to guide and develop the product just as it has in the past,’ said Jerry Kennelly, CEO at Riverbed.”
