US web performance monitoring firm Catchpoint to foray into China and Russia
Web performance monitoring company Catchpoint Systems is getting ready to conquer Eastern Europe and Asia Pacific. The company will add more monitoring locations to its existing 206 backbone nodes, according to TechCrunch.
Chief executive officer (CEO) Mehdi Daoudi explained: "Our clients are driving our node roadmap and they are telling us that Asia Pacific and Russia are emerging markets."
The machines that monitor the quality of data on devices and browsers are called backbone nodes. These machines allow companies to track the performance of their apps and other products with the use of real-time analytics. Catchpoint plans to add 30 new backbones in the first quarter of 2014 using the capital it received fro its Series B financing, the report detailed.
Founded in 2008, Catchpoint is currently headquartered in New York City. To date, the company has raised a total capital of $10.8 million. It operates backbones for several prominent clients in the US including Sprint, ATT, T-Mobile, and Verizon, wrote TechCrunch.
