The Story of ThousandEyes
ThousandEyes started with a small grant and scavenging servers from recycle bins. Now, we're part of Cisco. Here's our story.
Our People Are Our 'Secret Sauce'
Mohit and Ricardo will be the first to tell you that central to ThousandEyes’ success today is the diverse and talented team they were lucky enough to build (and continue to build!) around them. A team that is obsessed with solving the most complex problems with simple solutions, and a team who always, unfalteringly, puts the customer first. People who are authentic, humble, and like to have fun.
We're a Trusted Partner
Today, 100+ of the Fortune 500 are ThousandEyes customers, as are 190+ of the Global 2000, 20 of the top 25 SaaS providers, 6 of the top 7 US banks, and hundreds more. Credit Suisse, one of the world’s largest investment banks, named ThousandEyes one of just five technologies it considered to be disruptive to traditional IT technology. These companies share the same challenge that ThousandEyes directly addresses: their business is hampered by a complete lack of visibility and control when it comes to ensuring the delivery of their application or service from the cloud to their end users.
... And Trusted Experts
In the years since its founding, ThousandEyes has amassed the industry’s largest data set based on an increasing number of globally distributed vantage points that continually measure performance and experience from users to applications, wherever they are. The company has become the recognized expert and leader in Internet research, Internet outage analyses, and has consistently advocated for better intelligence to see, understand, and improve digital experiences everywhere. Prior to its acquisition by Cisco in August of 2020, it was backed by world-class investors, including Sequoia Capital, Google Ventures and Salesforce Ventures. Now with Cisco, ThousandEyes is on an undeniable trajectory of growth solving a global problem that impacts nearly every enterprise on Earth.
