Keynote Buys Envive’s MSP Division

Web application performance management service provider Keynote Systems today announced the acquisition of assets of the management service provider business of Envive Corp., a privately held company based in Mountain View, Calif.

Through the acquisition, San Mateo, Calif.-based Keynote gains the ability to offer on-demand, geographically distributed testing. Keynote is changing the name of Envive’s self-service subscription-based services to Test Perspective, available immediately. Current subscriptions to Envive’s services will continue uninterrupted.

In connection with the purchase of the assets of Envive’s MSP business, Keynote has assumed Envive’s ongoing obligations to its MSP customers, including Ann Taylor, Equifax, Nickelodeon and Walmart.

“Envive’s technology complements Keynote’s existing Transaction Perspective and KeyReadiness Load Testing,” said Umang Gupta, chairman and CEO of Keynote. “We believe many customers will purchase all three services: Transaction Perspective for ongoing measurements and trending, KeyReadiness for capacity modeling and planning and Test Perspective for real-time geographically distributed testing and diagnostics.”

Keynote’s Perspective family of services benchmarks and assures the performance of Web page downloads, transactions and audio and video streams. KeyReadiness is an outsourced Web site load testing service designed to reflect the unpredictable and dynamic nature of Web traffic.
