Cisco grabs ThousandEyes for network-intelligence technology
Cisco said it intends to acquire network intelligence software provider ThousandEyes for an undisclosed amount.
Founded in 2010, the 400-employee ThousandEyes firm offers a cloud-based software package that analyzes performance of local and wide-area networks and the internet. Utilizing its world-wide insights into service networks the company also tracks ISP, cloud and collaboration application performance via a family of intelligent cloud, enterprise and endpoint agents.
“ThousandEyes’ technology warns us when a user’s experience is less than ideal and can pinpoint where those failures were caused. With thousands of agents deployed throughout the Internet, ThousandEyes’ platform has an unprecedented understanding of the Internet and grows more intelligent with every deployment,” wrote Todd Nightingale, senior vice president and general manager with Cisco in a blog post about the acquisition.
