CA Picks Up Watchmouse

Looking to bolster its IT monitoring portfolio, CA Technologies has agreed to acquire Web site monitoring company Watchmouse. Terms were not disclosed.

The remote user monitoring service is a subscription-based offering that monitors the performance and availability of Web sites, services and transaction-level applications from 62 monitoring stations worldwide in over 40 countries.

Watchmouse, based in Utrecht, Netherlands, replicates real-time transactions and creates scripts that help identify issues that include slow response times and issues that could cause performance problems.

"The idea is as applications start to become more and more cloud-delivered, it's hard to instrument from inside," said Lokesh Jindal, senior VP of strategy and business development at Nimsoft, a division of CA that provides IT management solutions for midsized enterprises.

Watchmouse will be offered as an adjunct offering to the company's Nimsoft Monitor solution, allowing customers to ascertain how their Web sites and applications are performing from around the world. The service helps provide root causes of slow performing Web sites.

Watchmouse will also be sold as an add-on to CA's higher-end Application Performance Management (APM) solution, targeted at large enterprises. Watchnouse will offer greater visibility into application performance, whether the app is running in a datacenter, in the cloud or from a managed services provider, CA said.
