ThousandEyes Raises $35M to Expand Network Intelligence [PODCAST]

by Sean Michael Kerner

Mohit Lad, CEO of ThousandEyes, explains what his company is all about and why "old school" network monitoring tools aren't enough in the cloud era.

Understanding how applications traverse a network to help improve performance and security is not as easy in a modern IT environment as it was in the pre-cloud application era.

With visibility being a key challenge, ThousandEyes has built and deployed a platform that can provide a solution, and it's gaining traction both with customers and investors. This week the company announced it has raised a $35 million round of funding, bringing total funding to date up to $60 million. A key investor in the round is Google Ventures, the investment arm of Google, a company that certainly knows a thing or two about the cloud.

In a podcast interview with Enterprise Networking Planet, Mohit Lad, CEO of ThousandEyes, discusses the new funding and what the future holds for his company.
