Catchpoint Adds Internet Intelligence to its Digital Experience Monitoring Platform: Continuous Visibility into All Network Dependencies

Reducing Mean-Time-to-Detect End User Performance Problems; Powered by World’s Largest Geographic & ISP Monitoring Infrastructure

NEW YORK--Catchpoint™, the digital experience monitoring (DEM) leader, today introduced Internet Intelligence, a new monitoring capability providing organizations with deeper visibility into the health and pathways of the external and internal networks upon which their applications or digital services depend.

Internet Intelligence shows a network’s impact on the end user experience by continuously monitoring network health and network paths to private, public or hybrid clouds, CDNs, and other distributed IT architecture. This far-reaching visibility isolates degradations across broadband, transit, last mile and wireless ISP networks that could negatively impact end users. It also reduces mean-time-to-detect and offers the ability to adjust network peering to optimize delivery speeds.

The Catchpoint Node Network’s 800 IPv4 and IPv6 vantage points in 200 cities - the largest, most diverse monitoring infrastructure in its category - powers this capability and provides an unmatched level of intelligence on network performance. With its vast geographic footprint, continuous monitoring via broadband and transit ISPs, and with monitoring agents on the world’s leading dedicated internet providers such as Verizon, Comcast, Level3, China Telecom, and China Mobile, Catchpoint can pinpoint transit degradations to a specific ISP or peering point.

“It is critical to know how the internet at large is impacting your customers’ experience, and therefore, your business,” comments Mehdi Daoudi, CEO and co-founder of Catchpoint. “Any company with a large and diverse infrastructure footprint, or which relies on multiple clouds, CDNs, and DNS providers, understands the challenge of isolating network health when troubleshooting. By continuously testing from diverse networks and types, ISPs and geographies, we bring a new level of visibility and baselining to better understand reachability, availability and performance.”

Specific benefits for Catchpoint Internet Intelligence include:

Reachability and speed in cloud, multi-cloud environments: IT managers gain visibility into CDN, DNS, ISP, and other third-party performance issues.

Security breaches and route hijacking: Teams can quickly detect route changes, hijacks, leaks and broken paths, allowing them to localize and mitigate the incident.

Interconnection and Peering: Catchpoint allows you to benchmark network performance over time so teams can make better routing and steering decisions.

Visualize Network Pathways: Interactive visualizations allow you to drill down into AS and IP pathway performance metrics.

“Packet offers premium services for developers demanding the highest performing bare metal and automated infrastructure,” says Adam Rothschild, SVP, Network Architecture at Packet. “Catchpoint is solving three fundamental aspects for us: ensuring that our services are reachable from the top public cloud providers, from internet backbone and broadband locations, and across our own internal backbone. Catchpoint Internet Intelligence allows us to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations by giving us trustworthy data from remote locations around the globe, including in APAC. Detailed, granular telemetry and specific hop-by-hop details drastically reduce MTTD, and mean that isolating, triaging, and fixing problems happens faster and with less effort because we know that the data we get is accurate and actionable.”

Current Catchpoint customers have access to Internet Intelligence automatically. Companies interested in Catchpoint Internet Intelligence can learn more here:
