In March 2018, Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, acquired Cape, a local startup in South Africa, with a big vision: to improve the way the Internet works. As Cape we built a small team of skilled engineers and designers in Cape Town and a Wi-Fi monitoring product which won us Best Startup of 2017 from Wi-Fi NOW, a global industry body. Now, as part of Aruba, we are growing our team in Santa Clara, CA, building new products, and scaling our systems to meet a 100X surge in demand during the next 18-24 months.
What do we do? Our product gives IT managers' insight into how their Wi-Fi, networks, and apps are performing 24/7 and how to fix any issues before users complain. Other monitoring tools are complex and intimidating, built by network engineers for network engineers; ours is beautiful and simple, and our customers love it. Our hardware agent is a delight to install and our dashboard and mobile software is easy and fun to use. Our product is used in offices, hotels, airports, stadiums, retail stores, and more-every business with Wi-Fi is a potential customer we can help.
We are obsessed with every detail of the product experience, and we even design and manufacture our own hardware in Cape Town.
