Cribl Recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor in Monitoring and Observability

Written by Clint Sharp

We launched Cribl a little over three years ago and shipped our first product, Stream. Our goal was simple: to help enterprises get more value from their logging and event data. At the time, Stream was a groundbreaking product in the nascent observability space. Today, it is the leading observability pipeline used by companies like FINRA, Rivian, NASA JPL, Shutterstock, and Cox Automotive. Since launch, we’ve experienced over 300% growth and recently closed our $200M Series C with a great list of venture partners.

Today, I’m thrilled to share with you another milestone for Cribl. Gartner, a company that delivers actionable, objective insight to executives and their teams, recognized Cribl as a Cool Vendor in Monitoring and Observability. I believe getting Industry recognition as an early-stage company is challenging, but this acknowledgment from Gartner further validates our vision and commitment to our product, partners, and customers.

Being named a Cool Vendor isn’t the work of one person or team. It’s the work of everyone at Cribl, from engineering, to sales, support, and marketing. In truth, our customers get the credit for this recognition. A core value at Cribl is customer obsession and this is reflected in how our customers talk about us and our products. We would not be here without our customers, and we wouldn’t have those customers without the fantastic team we’ve built at Cribl.

At Cribl, we believe observability changes everything. Stream is the linchpin for our customers in making that change possible. It changes how security teams detect and respond to threats. It also changes how IT manages and shares data across the organization to unlock new value and opportunities. Finally, it shifts the conversation from compromising on observability data to how to use it strategically across teams and functions.

If you’re done compromising, I encourage you to check out our products at sandbox.cribl.io and join our community. Lastly, if you want to work at a customer-obsessed company, we’re hiring across all functions.
