Bringing Runscope to the Enterprise with Help from General Catalyst and Dr. Steve Herrod

By John Sheehan on .

Looking back over the past year, it's been an incredible ride for us as a company. We assembled a great team, launched two products, continually improved them, expanded around the globe, built a stable of community projects, and forged some big partnerships. The result: tens of thousands of developers have used Runscope tools to debug, test, and monitor their API integrations, capturing more than 50,000,000 requests to over 10,000 unique APIs.

We're grateful for all of the feedback, feature requests and bug reports we've received from our amazing customers and the broader developer community. To everyone who has used Runscope, a heartfelt thanks from our entire team. We're honored to be a part of your toolbox.

Today we've got two big announcements about the future of Runscope.

Runscope Behind the Firewall

API adoption is at an all-time high within large companies. Internal services form the nervous system of our organizations, powering infrastructure to apps and everything in between regardless of platform or programming language. We've seen strong demand for our debugging and testing tools from developers working within these service-oriented environments.

Runscope Enterprise is a suite of new and existing tools specifically tailored to high-volume, internal API consumption. With a hybrid on-premises approach, you get unprecedented visibility into your internal service traffic using the same Runscope dashboard you're already familiar with.

Today we're opening up a preview of Runscope Enterprise to a select few companies. Over the coming months we'll be granting access to more companies as we address additional needs like single sign-on, data retention policies and more. Request access today to be notified when Runscope Enterprise is ready for you.

A New Partner: General Catalyst and Dr. Steve Herrod

To help fuel our expansion into the enterprise, we're excited to announce that we've raised a $6M Series A round of funding led by General Catalyst with participation from True Ventures and Lerer Ventures. General Catalyst Managing Director Dr. Steve Herrod has joined our Board of Directors.

Prior to joining General Catalyst, Steve spent 11 years at VMware, most recently as CTO and Sr. VP of R&D. His extensive experience working in enterprise software will be an incredible asset to us as we grow. Steve was the only VC partner we talked with who tried Runscope for himself, inspecting API calls made from a side project of his. It's important to us that we partner with investors who truly understand developers and the enterprise and we couldn't be happier to have Steve on board.

Join the Team

We've got a clear vision of what the next generation of developer tools for building modern applications should look like, but we're going to need a lot of help solving some really big, hard problems. We've got a number of job openings in engineering, design, outreach and more with great perks and benefits including proven work/life balance. Come help us build the future.

Whether this is the first time you've heard of us, or you're rediscovering Runscope, we invite you to give us a try. No obligations, no credit card required. If you have any questions at any time, our team is standing by.
