Our vision and mission

ITRS Group’s technology creates resilience and efficiency for our customers, while helping them manage operational risk. Through a combination of monitoring and other production tools that can support you through digital disruption, we aim to take the stress out of running your IT estate.

How it all started

Uptrends’ started with a handful of checkpoints and its popular Uptime Monitoring platform. From there, Uptrends grew organically at a respectable, sustainable pace. Uptime monitoring led to performance monitoring, web application monitoring, server monitoring, API monitoring, real user monitoring, and eight checkpoints became over 233 worldwide monitoring locations. In the spring of 2018, Uptrends moved the home office to the third and largest space yet with room to sustain more growth.

2020 brought more exciting changes to Uptrends with the acquisition of the company by ITRS Group. As part of ITRS Group, Uptrends takes advantage of scope and scale, has more knowledge on board, and gains access to a broader set of products.
