Copenhagen, Denmark – January 31, 2017
Outpost24, a leading provider of Vulnerability Management solutions for commercial and government organizations, today announced strong growth for 2016. Driven by increasing market demand and backed by an innovative solution portfolio, the company achieved year-on-year growth of 37% in core markets. This growth follows increased investment after the company’s change of ownership in August 2016, specifically addressing products, sales, and marketing.
Market conditions are converging to create demand for Outpost24 solutions. There is an increase in visible and damaging cyber attacks that cause many organizations to re-evaluate their cyber security strategy. Additionally, changes in the regulatory environment worldwide are motivating organizations to ensure essential security controls are in place and part of normal operations. This driver is especially apparent in the European Union where the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has a free running clock towards a 2018 implementation deadline to avoid potentially stiff penalties. And perhaps most significantly organizations of all sizes are evaluating their technology infrastructure, seeking new ways to be cost efficient by moving workloads to the cloud and introducing mobile apps to streamline business operation and increase customer engagement. These technologies are disrupting established security strategies and driving new investment.
“We're pleased with these results, which we view as an early sign of a winning strategy,” said Martin Henricson, CEO of Outpost24. “Time has shown that cyber criminals who know how to abuse the Internet have an advantage over those organizations focused on getting the most value from their technology investments. Our aim is enable those organizations to minimize or eliminate business disruption from cyber attacks by providing insights on where to focus their day-to-day efforts.”
