Dyn acquires new technology in latest acquisition
MANCHESTER — Dyn, a global provider of Internet performance enhancements, has acquired ReadyStatus, a company whose software notifies customers of planned and unplanned interruptions in their Internet service.
Dyn plans to integrate ReadyStatus technology into existing Dyn services designed to redirect customer traffic if a company’s website goes down.
ReadyStatus is a Seattle-based start-up with only a handful of employees, according to Dyn spokesman Adam Coughlin. Dyn is not acquiring any real estate in the transaction, and none of the ReadyStatus personnel will be joining the Manchester-based tech company.
“At Dyn, we’re really all about Internet performance,” said Coughlin, “So this is a nice feature that allows websites to be able to communicate with their users, no matter what.”
The purchase price for the ReadyStatus technology was not disclosed.
