Innovation, Expansion and Channel Growth Highlight First Anniversary of ThreatTrack Security
Launch of ThreatSecure platform, office opening in D.C. area and growing partner community lead to successful, profitable first year for cybersecurity firm
CLEARWATER, Fla., April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — In its first year as an independent company, ThreatTrack Security has successfully expanded its operations and solutions portfolio to better serve the most pressing cybersecurity needs of enterprises and government agencies. The development and recent launch of ThreatSecure(TM)- the industry’s first solution to provide real-time detection and endpoint remediation of advanced malware threats – is the culmination of the company’s strategy to empower organizations of all sizes to protect themselves from the world’s most sophisticated malware.
“We set out a year ago to build a nimble and innovative cyber-defense firm to help organizations defend themselves from advanced malware attacks evading traditional security solutions,” said Julian Waits, Sr., president and CEO of ThreatTrack Security. “By putting a focus on product innovation, recruiting top executive leadership, expanding our operations and focusing on the growth of our partner community, we’ve already delivered cutting-edge solutions to the market and are positioning the company for long-term growth and success.”
In addition to developing new technologies that meet evolving cybersecurity needs, ThreatTrack Security continues to focus on strengthening VIPRE, the company’s well-established endpoint protection and antivirus solution. ThreatTrack Security grew its VIPRE business sales by 20% year-over-year. VIPRE antivirus technology now defends more than 10 million endpoints around the world, with the largest VIPRE customer protecting more than 70,000 endpoints.
ThreatTrack Security succeeded in many areas during its first year, including:
-- Launched ThreatSecure, an advanced malware protection platform and the industry's first solution to combine advanced threat detection with closed-loop remediation on the endpoint. Available first as email security appliance, ThreatSecure provides real-time detection and automated remediation of APTs, targeted attacks and Zero-day threats. -- Launched ThreatAnalyzer 5, the latest version of the industry's leading malware analysis sandbox featuring more than 30 enhancements, including improved behavioral analysis capabilities, simulated reboot countermeasures for sandbox-evading malware and a redesigned user interface for improved workflow. -- Introduced VIPRE Business Premium and VIPRE Antivirus Business versions 6.5, the industry's first endpoint protection suites with integrated support for Windows Server Hyper-V security management. -- Released VIPRE Email Security for Exchange 3.6, featuring multiple adaptive technologies to better protect users from spam and email-borne threats.
-- The Clearwater, Fla.-headquartered company also expanded to the Washington, D.C. area in August 2013 to attract additional cybersecurity development and sales talent, and better serve its federal government customers. Used by defense, law enforcement and civilian agencies, ThreatTrack Security solutions are a critical component of the U.S. cybersecurity infrastructure. The company now has offices in Florida, Virginia, the United Kingdom, Spain and the Philippines. -- Added dedicated Sales resources for the financial services and government markets, supporting customers in sectors most often targeted by cybercriminals.
-- Appointed Stewart Curley to the post of Chief Financial Officer -- Appointed Dipto Chakravarty to the post of Executive Vice President of Engineering and Products
-- Implemented a channel-centric go-to-market strategy, including a new partner program and realignment of the sales organization to better collaborate with and enable resellers. -- Grew sales revenue by nearly 40% through solution providers, and more than doubled sales through key distribution partners, creating a more efficient and profitable partner ecosystem. -- Began recruiting partners to add advanced malware defenses - including ThreatSecure and ThreatAnalyzer - to their solutions portfolios and enabling them to capitalize on the growing demand for more advanced cybersecurity. -- Added new OEM partnerships (including with Faronics and LabTech) to bring innovative cybersecurity solutions to their customers.
“As we move into our second year, the focus remains on innovation and building awareness about the need for layered security and automated remediation, which is the natural counterpart to malware detection in the battle to defend data and networks,” continued Waits. “We’re seeing tremendous adoption of our approach, and we’re just getting started.”
