Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Riverbed Steelhead.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
They should include a network switch in a future release.
Application response time and network performance could be improved. Allot, an Israel-based organization, is offering DDoS attack prevention, not mitigation but prevention; threat response. If Riverbed would offer DDoS or IPS-type stuff, that would be great. Because we are deploying Riverbed in inline mode, we can easily take advantage of these kinds of features.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
