SmartBear Buys CrossBrowserTesting

SmartBear Software has acquired CrossBrowserTesting that provides an automated cloud testing platform. The acquisition enables CrossBrowserTesting to further accelerate and scale its rapidly growing Web and mobile cloud testing offering using SmartBear global resources.

CrossBrowserTesting has more than 200,000 users globally. With more than 5 million tests run so far, CrossBrowserTesting provides a highly secured, scalable and flexible cloud containing more than 1,500 real mobile devices and browsers in more than 65 operating systems, including iOS, Android and Windows. CrossBrowserTesting will continue to operate as a standalone business inside SmartBear.

CrossBrowserTesting adds a cloud testing platform to SmartBear’s award winning collection of products for developers, testers and IT operations professionals. The acquisition in particular will be a strong complement to SmartBear’s existing testing tool portfolio. Over time, the acquisition opens up a slew of new capabilities for SmartBear’s customers, as they will be able to overcome test environment management challenges, along with speeding up test creation and maintenance through existing SmartBear testing tools. Additionally, the support for Selenium and Appium in CrossBrowserTesting aligns perfectly with SmartBear’s vision of providing more value through open source tools. SmartBear’s support for Selenium project and its open source offering SoapUI are testament to that fact.
