IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Netwrix Corporation, the first vendor to introduce a visibility and governance platform for hybrid cloud security, today announced strong 2016 results: 69% growth in the enterprise sector and 40% growth in global revenue compared to 2015. Netwrix also reported substantial growth across North America, France, Asia Pacific and other regions, and market leadership expansion — all by winning customer loyalty, upgrading the Netwrix Auditor platform and gaining recognition from IT industry experts.
"2016 will be marked as a notorious year for the largest data breaches in history so far, from Yahoo and LinkedIn to FriendFinder Networks. Hardly anything will change in 2017: Hacking techniques will continue to evolve, forcing companies to be more vigilant and search for new ways to protect sensitive information. To address this market demand, Netwrix will continue to focus on providing visibility and user behavior analytics to organizations of all sizes to help them gain better control over activity across their complex IT environments," said Michael Fimin, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix.
- Netwrix reports 66% revenue increase in Q4 2016 compared to Q4 2015. The company has also achieved success in the enterprise sector: 69% YoY growth in enterprise sales and 40% growth across the globe.
- Netwrix demonstrated 60% increase in channel sales compared to 2015. Netwrix also showed 73% growth in Asia Pacific, 91% growth in Italy, 55% in the DACH region, 41% growth in the U.S. and unprecedented 455% growth in France.
- In April 2016, the company launched Netwrix Auditor 8.0 with support for hybrid cloud environments. In October 2016, it released Netwrix Auditor 8.5, which further extends visibility into hybrid cloud infrastructures and enables detection and investigation of abnormal user behavior.
"Netwrix Auditor has helped us on a number of occasions to proactively deal with potential security incidents, such as a sub-contractor's violation of permissions, and minimize user impact on our security," said John Adams, IT Director, Washington County Information Systems Department. "Netwrix Auditor's reports and the Interactive Search feature provide detailed information about issues and enable the team to resolve them faster, before they impact user productivity and stifle business activity. Now we can easily identify anomalies and coordinate with IT staff to understand whether they were planned or might be problematic."
