Cisco has announced the acquisition of network intelligence firm ThousandEyes, a deal estimated to be worth up to almost $1 billion, according to reports.
ThousandEyes was founded in 2010 and was valued at $670 million in 2019. ThousandEyes says it can also help companies identify potential weak points in their networks and make more informed decisions on infrastructure investments. And in a blog post, referring to Cisco's Talos threat intelligence group, he added that "more than anything, ThousandEyes is to the network what Talos is to security".
Cisco explains the step by saying that "the combination of Cisco's expertise in network and application performance and ThousandEyes' visibility into the Internet will provide customers with an end-to-end view into the digital delivery of applications and services". ThousandEyes, which Crunchbase characterized as an "emerging unicorn", has raised $110 million in financing to date.

As TechCrunch reports, the deal is "part of a broader move [by Cisco] to software and services as a complement to its core networking hardware business". "This will give customers end-to-end visibility when accessing cloud applications, and Internet Intelligence will improve networking reliability and the overall application experience", he said.
"Cisco buying ThousandEyes adds to its network intelligence portfolio", Lee Doyle, principal analyst at Doyle Research, told NetworkWorld. "Now with ThousandEyes, Cisco can bring that rich set of internet knowledge and combine it with the data it generates with its own equipment".
Cisco said that the purchase will close before the first quarter of its fiscal year 2021.
ThousandEyes CEO Mohit Lad will become General Manager, while fellow co-founder and CTO Ricardo Oliveira will remain in charge of the company's product vision and innovation strategy.
