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.

“The ThousandEyes acquisition will enable deeper and broader visibility to pin-point deficiencies and improve the network and application performance across all networks your business relies on by enabling end-to-end visibility when accessing cloud applications,” Nightingale stated. “Internet Intelligence won’t just improve networking reliability, but end-to-end application experience.”

Cisco said it envisions embedding ThousandEyes technology in a variety of its products including its AppDynamics application performance, SD-WAN, WebEx and Meraki families to enhance visibility across the enterprise, internet and the cloud.

With the acquisition, common tooling and sharing datasets for application and network health will help remove silos, giving IT teams at Cisco shops real-time visibility into application performance degradation issues, he stated.
