“Fortesys today has become synonymous with being a leading distributor and solutions partner for total IT Networking Solutions – ranging from structured cabling, data network (wired and wireless), network management, network security, storage area network (SAN) and voice communications – throughout Malaysia and Southeast Asia,” said Tee.

“Our mission is to provide the most cost-effective and complete network solutions to meet all our customers’ business needs, and this partnership with Riverbed is yet another milestone after having worked so hard to realise it past few months.”

Incorporated in Malaysia in 2008, Fortesys Sdn Bhd is today one of Malaysia’s leading distributors and solutions partners for total end-to-end IT Networking Solutions, from Structured Cabling, Data Network (Wired & Wireless), Network Management, Network Security, Storage Area Network (SAN) and Voice Communication.

Riverbed, meanwhile, is known for solutions that enable organisations to visualise, optimise, remediate and accelerate the performance of any network for any application, while supporting business objectives to mitigate cybersecurity risk and enhance the digital experience for all end-users.

“We offer two best-in-class product lines: visibility and unified observability – including NPM, APM and EUEM – that delivers actionable insights; and acceleration solutions, including application acceleration (SaaS, client and cloud acceleration), WAN optimisation, and enterprise-grade SD-WAN,” said Riverbed regional sales director Kevin Wong, adding that the company today has more than thirty thousand customers worldwide, including 95% of Fortune 100 companies.

“Our success stems from innovation that enables organisations to maximise visibility and performance across networks, applications and end-user devices, so they can fully capitalise on their cloud and digital investments regardless of how complex or distributed the IT environment is,” he added.

Under the partnership, Fortesys will be distributing the whole suite of Riverbed’s end-to-end solutions based on the Riverbed Network and Application Performance Platform.

“Comprising best-in-class solutions, our platform ensures networks and applications operate at peak performance, hence empowering users to optimise performances of any network for any application,” said Wong.

The Riverbed platform’s ability to maximise performance and visibility encompasses application acceleration, network performance management, software-defined wireless wide area network (WAN) and WAN optimisation.

On market demand, Tee said that demand for networking solutions have been rising rapidly in Malaysia, and set to accelerate even more due to the impending 5G network in the foreseeable future.

Fortesys has built up a strong reputation for enabling customers to streamline their IT operations with their its solutions, while transforming infrastructure to be ‘intelligent’ by leveraging on artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies.

“We are proud to be providing top-notch services and endeavour to integrate strategy and adding high value to our valued customers,” said Tee.
