Company achieves milestones in revenue, data-center deployments and channel sales growth; robust sales pipeline will drive even stronger growth in 2014
"2013 was an exceptional year for Bit9—and, most importantly, for our customers—as more companies deployed our industry-leading advanced threat protection platform on their endpoints, servers and fixed-function devices," said Patrick Morley, president and chief executive officer of Bit9. "Every organization is a potential target, and more companies are turning to Bit9 for real-time prevention and response because traditional security solutions are failing them. That's never been more evident than with the rise in successful attacks on point-of-sale systems."
Bit9 2013 results include:
- 66% revenue growth
- 93% increase in data-center sales
- 137% channel sales growth
"As advanced threats grow in number and severity, organizations need a new generation of endpoint and server security," Morley said. "Antivirus is simply not effective against the targeted and zero-day attacks that make headlines on almost a daily basis. Bit9's success in 2013 is proof that our approach to security, based on real-time prevention and response, is the best choice to protect enterprises against potentially devastating advanced threats."
Key Bit9 accomplishments in 2013 include:
- Established partnerships with leading network security companies FireEye and Palo Alto Networks; introduced Bit9 for FireEye and Bit9 for Palo Alto Networks to integrate endpoint/server and network security.
- Delivered industry firsts in advanced threat detection and forensics, including Advanced Threat Indicators (ATI), to identify threats that traditional security tools, such as antivirus, cannot.
- Published a research report on the significant security risk posed by Java, the endpoint technology most targeted by cyber attacks.
- Introduced Bit9 for Mac, the first enterprise-caliber security solution to stop advanced threats and zero-day attacks against Macs.
- Hosted the largest user conference in company history, with a four-fold increase in attendees and double the number of sessions.
