Dover, MA, August 14, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The future is bright as SkyRecon performs an assessment after the latest fund raising in March 2007.
SkyRecon® Systems (www.skyrecon.com), the premier provider of integrated, proactive endpoint security solutions, today announced 100% growth for the third consecutive year, an exceptional dynamic in a security market that had previously been dominated by three traditional antivirus vendors representing approximately 85% in combined market share.
Today, StormShield® protects over 250 clients’ endpoints in the US and EMEA, among them large accounts and prestigious names including Community National Bank, La Mondiale, FN Manufacturing, Bouygues, City of Luxembourg, GMF, Aviva, KBL, Natixis, and the French Department of Finance.
In addition, the sales pipeline has quadrupled since March 2007 and includes many marquee names across multiple industries. The SkyRecon Alliance Partner program now includes 30 VARs in Europe and 10 Solution Providers in the US.
The company enjoys strategic technological and business relationships with industry leaders such as Microsoft, Juniper, VMware, and SanDisk. SkyRecon’s StormShield Security Suite has just received the OESISOK certification, which ensures that every endpoint security layer of StormShield is interoperable with other market-leading security applications.
SkyRecon’s ongoing and recent vulnerability research, coupled with its innovative product delivery model, enable the security vendor to be proactive in responding to customer needs; with this, the security market has embraced SkyRecon’s technology by having it nominated as a finalist for the SC Awards magazine in the US (Best Mobile Device Security Solution category) and the Techworld.com Awards in the UK (Endpoint Security Product of the Year category). SkyRecon StormShield has also been named a top-10 CRN Emerging Tech Vendor by Everything Channel.
With its initial go-to-market of StormShield in 2004, SkyRecon positioned itself as a pioneer in the unified endpoint security market. By focusing on the most vulnerable component of the information system infrastructure - the endpoint - and by offering efficient solutions to protect both the system and data, SkyRecon was the first to open the road of which is now considered to be a market segment all unto itself.
“Client security is changing; point products are out, integrated suites are in,” said senior analyst Natalie Lambert of Forrester Research, Inc. in the report titled Inquiry Insights: Client Security, Q3 2008 published July 14, 2008.
StormShield Security Suite offers integrated system protection, data protection, and access control in a multi-layered, light-weight single security suite: device control, data encryption, application control, host-based intrusion prevention (HIPS), system firewall, wireless security, and network access control (NAC). More importantly, the lightweight extensible StormShield client framework provides for future enhancements to be included, allowing StormShield to quickly and easily adapt as the business, IT, and security landscapes continue to meld and change.
“Building on our strong experience, we continue to benefit from the maturity and ongoing consolidation of the endpoint security market and organizations becoming more aware of the need to effectively, yet simply, protect their corporate PCs,” says Ravy Truchot, President and CEO of SkyRecon Systems.
“Today, integrated endpoint solutions are on the minds of many, our ‘time to market’ is excellent, our solutions are meeting the challenge, our prospects extremely exciting, and we expect to experience 2 or more years of 100% growth,” says Truchot.
SkyRecon also launched TradeShield™, a complete services-enabled solution designed to protect financial collaborative platforms used on the trading floors around the world. This unique protection prevents laptop, desktop and server attacks, secures business data, and ensures the proper use of both the systems and data – ultimately helping to thwart data theft and rogue trades.
