This is the fourth major accolade for ThousandEyes in 2014. Earlier this year:
  • Gartner named the company a 'Cool Vendor' in Application Performance Monitoring and IT Operations Analytics, 2014 for being innovative, impactful and intriguing
  • Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) named the company a Vendor to Watch for providing unique customer value by solving problems that have previously gone unaddressed

"The changing nature of enterprise networks has opened up a huge opportunity to redefine network monitoring. We're pairing a simple deployment model, a highly visual analytics engine and data collection tools that work across distributed networks. This latest recognition speaks strongly about where we believe ThousandEyes and the network monitoring market are headed," said Mohit Lad, co-founder and CEO of ThousandEyes.
