Catchpoint Systems, a new provider of Web performance monitoring solutions for Internet-dependent businesses, announced significant product milestones for the first year since the launch of its offerings.

In response to the industry’s need for more robust Web Performance Optimization (WPO) solutions, Catchpoint recently released the following product features:

*Real-Time Push APIs: Real-Time Push APIs enable data to be sent directly from the monitoring agent the moment the test completes it run. Data arrives in real time and can be integrated into customers’ monitoring dashboards so they can quickly and easily identify and resolve problems.

*Integrated Page Speed Score: Catchpoint’s website performance monitoring solution calculates and records the Google Page Speed score on every test run. With this feature, clients have a historical view of the Page Speed score which helps them determine what impacted their score over time and find solutions to make their sites faster.

*Dynamic Host Replacement: Users now have the ability to dynamically test domain sharding, new applications or service releases, DNS providers, and CDNs with no coding efforts. The Catchpoint tool allows them to perform “what if” scenarios in real time without having to waste valuable time and resources to program or simulate situations.

Other monthly releases last quarter included support for Selenium Transaction Scripts, JavaScript/HTML5.0-based advanced charting capabilities, and customizable scheduled reports to distribute performance data to the organization.

With the latest addition of nodes in Singapore and Spain, Catchpoint now monitors all major metropolises worldwide through best-in-class Tier 1 data centers and backbone ISPs. The system has also grown from running 50,000 performance tests daily to more than three million tests monitoring Web, DNS, FTP, TCP, and Selenium scripts.
