Sauce Labs Acquires TestObject

Sauce Labs has announced its acquisition of TestObject, a real device mobile app testing platform. The combined solution positions Sauce Labs as a vendor providing automated testing coverage across desktops, emulators, simulators, and real devices for web applications and mobile, web, hybrid and native apps.

“We were attracted to TestObject for its high speed and reliable real device testing for mobile applications, as well as the amazing engineering team behind it,” said Charles Ramsey, CEO of Sauce Labs. “This strategic acquisition accelerates our ability to provide the most comprehensive web and mobile testing solution in the market today. Our customers will benefit from a single platform for all their web and mobile automated testing needs.”

Sauce Labs says the combination of its technology and TestObject fulfills this criteria. Sauce Labs already offers the largest, cloud based automated testing platform on the market, running more than one million tests per day and more than 800 million tests run to date across desktop, emulators, simulators, and real devices. The TestObject acquisition brings additional real device coverage (200+ device types), a private cloud solution for enterprises that require the highest level of security, and high-speed manual testing on real devices. Combine that with Sauce Lab’s existing Real Device Cloud for automated mobile app testing in high concurrency, and Sauce Labs cements its position as the most comprehensive web and mobile testing platform.
