“As Bigleaf moves into this exciting stage of growth, I look forward to working with our expanding network of partners and end-users to create a faster, simpler, and more reliable experience for the countless organizations that depend on the internet to operate every day,” said Stout. “In today’s always-on world, our customers don’t have time to worry about internet performance and they certainly can’t afford for that performance to be sub-par. I am honored to work with the innovative and customer-first teams at Bigleaf to elevate the value that an optimized internet experience brings to our end-users.”

With a continued shift to online operations, IT organizations are managing more endpoints, networks and connected applications than ever before.
