SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Dec. 15, 2015 - Sauce Labs, Inc., provider of the world’s largest cloud-based platform for automated testing of web and mobile applications, today announced that its customers have executed more than 400 million tests on its automated testing platform, a four-fold increase in just over 18 months.
