Last Modified:

Riverbed Technology, Inc. announced that Aternity would be an independent division focused on Digital Experience Management (DEM) in July 2019. As of January 2020, Aternity began operating as an independent company in order to drive greater focus on the significant DEM market.

Aternity is excited to welcome Riverbed's customers to its Support community. The following FAQ should assist you in answering key questions related to support resources, site access, documentation, and software downloads that will be received from Riverbed. We look forward to working with you.


What are the main differences between Aternity Support and Riverbed Support?
There are a lot more similarities than differences in the way Aternity and Riverbed deliver support for their customers. Both organizations are driven to provide the highest level of customer satisfaction possible and actively listen to customer feedback to make changes where necessary.

How do I get support for my Aternity Products?
As of May 18, 2020, Riverbed commercial customers seeking assistance for SteelCentral Aternity or AppInternals products will need to open support cases on the Aternity Support Community portal. Aternity Support migrated case history for active accounts to the new Support portal. Customers may need to re-register profiles on the Aternity Portal for proper account assignment and activation.  
For our Public sector and Federal customers, please continue to use Riverbed’s support site. The Aternity Support team will continue to service case requests on the Riverbed portal. We anticipate migration of this customer group to the Aternity Support community near mid-year, 2021.    
Will Aternity honor my Riverbed support contract?
Existing Riverbed support contracts will be honored by Aternity. The following is a brief summary:
Aternity Software Support
24x7x365 access to website, phone and email support
Software support, including maintenance releases and software upgrades.
How do I obtain an Aternity Support website account? 
On May 18, 2020 existing Riverbed customers with a Riverbed support website account will receive an email containing a link for access to the Aternity Support website. The email will include a request to reset your password to gain access to all Aternity Support tools.
If you are unable to locate the email or did not receive one, you may register for an Aternity Support website account. This link will guide you through a process to obtain Aternity Support Community credentials. You will need to input a “new” Aternity Product Identifier (PI) for registration. The Aternity PI asset code differs from the Riverbed assigned code and will not work for Aternity Portal registration. If you do not know your Product Identifier, please contact Aternity Support for assistance and provide the Riverbed PI code for cross-reference account assignment.
