Why settle for a ThousandEyes? With Catchpoint, you see more

Catchpoint Internet Performance Monitoring (IPM) offers deeper, more global visibility than Cisco ThousandEyes or any ThousandEyes competitors with over 2700 independent, global vantage points.

Why are people leaving Cisco ThousandEyes?

Some of the biggest issues facing ThousandEyes users:

Limited visibility

Lacking Internet insights, limited geographic footprint, no real time BGP data

Lacking independence

ThousandEyes is not independent since it is hosted on AWS and owned by Cisco

Missing essential features

No scenario testing, no 'what-if' analyses, 30-90 day data retention

Uncertain future

How much will ThousandEyes innovate on IPM given its increasingly minor status within Cisco?
