Catchpoint Systems operates the world’s largest performance monitoring infrastructure, with the highest number of monitoring nodes and the most expansive geographic coverage. These nodes measure and monitor the performance (speed, availability, and reliability) of clients’ digital properties around the clock, including websites, mobile sites, and applications.
Catchpoint Systems stands apart from the competition in several key ways. First, the wide geographic reach of its nodes infrastructure allows clients to get the most accurate view of performance for end users around the world. Second, Catchpoint combines performance data with rich analytics in real time, enabling IT teams to identify and fix hotspots within their own infrastructure and across the internet, often before performance problems occur. Catchpoint also monitors the performance of cloud infrastructures, and their tools integrate with popular enterprise IT incident and alert management systems.
“A strong EMEA presence is critical to Catchpoint’s overall business success,” says Mehdi Daoudi, co-founder and CEO, Catchpoint Systems, adding, “Kai Ahrendt has the talent and drive we need to lead and inspire our local employees, acquire new customers, support existing ones, and expand our overall EMEA footprint.”
