SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jun 17, 2008 -- Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the technology and market leader in wide-area data services (WDS), today announced that at Burton Group Catalyst Conference 2008, its customer, Gensler, will discuss why it made the strategic decision to leverage WDS across its organization and how Riverbed® has allowed the company to optimize its global workforce. Catalyst 2008, taking place June 23 - 27 in San Diego, Calif., is an event for enterprise technologists and executives working to drive change within their organizations.
