Cisco has announced its intent to acquire Epsagon, a modern observability company with offices in New York and Tel Aviv.
Epsagon will play a key role in expanding and accelerating Cisco’s comprehensive Full-Stack Observability roadmap.
Cisco’s core SaaS solutions for full-stack observability include AppDynamics, ThousandEyes and Intersight. “Our Full-Stack Observability platform, comprised of these solutions, provides observability across the entire stack of applications, network infrastructure and security with real-time insights correlated across domains and integrated with business context powered by AI and machine learning,” the company said in a statement.
Increasing consumer demand for a seamless digital experience with each application interaction – whether shopping for groceries, ordering meals, buying a car, applying for a loan or getting work done – means businesses must ensure that every component of their application – third-party or otherwise – runs smoothly.
Businesses are adopting cloud-native technologies, microservices and containerized components on a large scale while leveraging an extensive web of traditional components, third-party services and application programming interfaces.
When the acquisition closes, the Epsagon team will join our Strategy, Incubation and Applications group.
