(The Hosting News) – Catchpoint Systems, Inc., a new provider of Web performance monitoring solutions for Internet-dependent businesses, today announced significant customer and product milestones for the first year since the launch of its offerings. Catchpoint added 30 new clients in the last quarter including Business Insider, Collective, CSN Stores, Meebo, OpenDNS , the Rubicon Project, Viddler, and [ x+1]. In addition, 24/7 Real Media, one of Catchpoint’s founding customers, recently moved all external performance monitoring from a mix of providers solely to Catchpoint. Catchpoint also expanded global coverage and continued to develop and advance its solutions, delivering first-of-their-kind product features to customers every month.
“We couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve accomplished in the first year since our product launched. We saw and seized on a huge opportunity in the traditional performance monitoring market to not only create a superior solution from the ground up, but also offer unprecedented client support and frequent product releases to meet our clients’ increasingly complex Web monitoring needs,” said Mehdi Daoudi, Catchpoint Chief Executive and Founder. “Based on the positive feedback, our solid client relationships, and our penetration into the ad delivery, publishing, ecommerce, and infrastructure markets, it’s clear we’re succeeding.”
In response to the industry’s need for more robust Web Performance Optimization (WPO) solutions, Catchpoint recently released the following product features:
Real-Time Push APIs: A first in the industry, Real-Time Push APIs enable data to be sent directly from the monitoring agent the moment the test completes it run. Data arrives in real time and can be integrated into customers’ monitoring dashboards so they can quickly and easily identify and resolve problems.
Integrated Page Speed Score: Catchpoint’s website performance monitoring solution calculates and records the Google Page Speed score on every test run. With this feature, clients have a historical view of the Page Speed score which helps them determine what impacted their score over time and find solutions to make their sites faster.
Dynamic Host Replacement: Users now have the ability to dynamically test domain sharding, new applications or service releases, DNS providers, and CDNs with no coding efforts. The Catchpoint tool allows them to perform “what if” scenarios in real time without having to waste valuable time and resources to program or simulate situations.
“Catchpoint’s founders have been in the forefront of external Internet monitoring for almost a decade, so we were confident that their solution would meet our rigorous demands. After experiencing first-hand their unparalleled commitment to customer service and rapid product innovation over the last year, we decided to move to their platform for external monitoring,” said Christopher Chatterton, Senior Vice President, Global Technical Operations, 24/7 Real Media, Inc., a WPP Company. “Reliability, availability and speed are absolutely critical to our business. We leverage the external view monitoring to spot and resolve potential issues, ensuring the highest quality service for our customers across our Open AdStream® ad management and Global Web Alliance media network offerings.”
With the latest addition of nodes in Singapore and Spain, Catchpoint now monitors all major metropolises worldwide through best-in-class Tier 1 data centers and backbone ISPs. The system has also grown from running 50,000 performance tests daily to more than three million tests monitoring Web, DNS, FTP, TCP, and Selenium scripts.
