Soasta

Founded in 2008, SOASTA simulates high-volume web traffic to test site and mobile app performance. For the past two years, The Wall Street Journal has named them one of America’s top 50 hottest companies. Everyone wants to release the next hot app or bulletproof their website. But until now, it took a unique breed to thoroughly test them and to ensure they’ll perform at scale. SOASTA is driven by a radical idea: Make powerful testing accessible to anyone. Do it in the cloud. Make it visual and far less complex. Deliver immediate actionable intelligence in real time. And incorporate testing for gesture and touch interfaces.
