Dublin [Ireland], June 17 (ANI / BusinessWire India): BrowserStack today announced that it has secured $ 200 million in Series B funding at a valuation of $ 4 billion.

Leading brand and category before any developer
Companies today must launch software with speed and quality to remain competitive. To do this, businesses need to embrace DevOps, test more, and test quickly. However, for most businesses, testing remains the biggest bottleneck in the DevOps cycle.
BrowserStack products help developers create bug-free software for the 5 billion Internet users who access websites and mobile applications across millions of combinations of digital environments – devices, browsers, operating systems and versions. BrowserStack provides developers with instant access to a cloud platform that allows them to comprehensively test their websites and mobile applications, replacing the need for teams to own and manage in-house testing infrastructure. This means development teams can focus on building quality software quickly rather than maintaining an internal test infrastructure that is complex to build and impossible to scale.

Its customers include leaders such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Twitter, Tesco, IKEA, Spotify, Expedia and Trivago. As a developer-focused brand, BrowserStack has focused on product-driven growth and has been profitable since its inception.

You won’t find a solution by looking for a code snippet on the Internet, ”said Nakul Aggarwal, Co-Founder and CTO of BrowserStack. “We have made and will continue to make significant investments in hiring the best engineers who can innovate and solve complex problems for developers. “
