Riverbed expects third-quarter adjusted earnings of 0.30 to $0.32 a share, on adjusted revenue of $285 to $291 million.

Chief Executive Jerry M. Kennelly said growth will accelerate in the second half of the year as the company gains traction with efforts to extend beyond its "core WAN optimization business."

In after hours trading, shares recently rose two percent to $18.30.
