SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LANDesk Software, a global leader in systems lifecycle management, endpoint security and IT service management, reaches its one-year anniversary as a stand-alone company with solid momentum across key focus areas for the company, including profitability, customer growth, industry recognition and its solutions portfolio.
Since becoming a stand-alone business in September of 2010, LANDesk has won more than 700 new customers and achieved a customer satisfaction rate of 93.5 percent. The company has been particularly successful in the education, healthcare and government markets. In fact, LANDesk recently accelerated its penetration into the federal government space with announced support for FIPS 140-2 and SCAP standards.
The company has achieved record profits this year and profits in the most recent quarter are up more than 30 percent. Within the past 12 months, LANDesk has won 10 awards from industry organizations such as Info Security Products Guide and CRN Magazine and was named the Network World Clear Choice winner for PC Lifecycle management. LANDesk has also been acknowledged for its technological leadership in industry analyst reports from Gartner, Forrester and EMA.
"LANDesk is reenergized as a stand-alone company with greater independence and flexibility, which is positively impacting our customers, partners and market momentum," said Steve Daly, CEO of LANDesk. "Despite challenging market conditions, we have over-achieved our financial targets with record growth in profitability and have been able to grow our business, broaden our customer base and expand our product portfolio. Our ability to deliver industry leading ROI coupled with our strong and improving financial position allows us to invest to extend our leadership position."
Investing in product improvements and research and development is one of the ways LANDesk will extend its leadership position. As part of the newest version of LANDesk® Management and Security Suites, the company announced LANDesk® Mobility Manager, which provides IT managers the capability to discover devices at the point where users access and consume corporate data and take action by removing data from a single device or from all users' devices. In addition, LANDesk made significant upgrades to its LANDesk® Service Desk and LANDesk® Asset Lifecycle Manager products in the past year.
This fall, LANDesk will again be hosting Interchange, its annual customer and partner conference in Las Vegas. At the event, LANDesk executives will outline the company's vision and strategy for 2012 and will make numerous product announcements, as the company continues to pursue profitable revenue growth and solidify its leadership position in delivering an integrated portfolio for simplifying the management of desktops, servers and mobile devices across the full spectrum of an organization's IT environment.
