MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF.– UpGuard, the system of record for DevOps, today announced it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the “Cool Vendors in DevOps 2015” report by Gartner, Inc.*
UpGuard provides visibility into the configuration state of an organization's IT environments, enabling the continuous delivery of mission critical services. For enterprises where downtime is not an option, UpGuard's systemwide overwatch offers the assurance that misconfigurations and anomalies are caught before they affect the business. By satisfying this fundamental need of all IT organizations, UpGuard has attracted over 1,400 customers from financial services, ecommerce, and travel logistics.
"We believe being chosen as a Cool Vendor validates the approach we've taken to systems management and the hard work of our team," said cofounder and CoCEO Mike Baukes. "As DevOps gains traction, we are seeing more and more enterprises questioning the status quo offered by incumbent vendors, System wide visibility is critical in dealing with the complexity of modern IT systems."
In the past year UpGuard has raised $8.7M in Series A funding and added Vivek Mehra and Scott Petry to its board of directors. In 2015, UpGuard continues to improve on its platform for complete state visibility across all IT endpoints and core systems. Recent product improvements include the move to an agentless architecture and a full FIM offering to give users even more information about how their systems are changing.
