Security Innovation Closes 2017 with Record Revenue and Profits
Market Leader Well-Positioned for 2018 Success as Demand for Its Software Security Training and Assessment Services Continues to Soar.
February 5, 2018 - Security Innovation, the worldwide leader in software security training and assessment services, today announced that it achieved record-breaking milestones in revenue, profitability, customer engagement and users trained in 2017, putting the company on the path to continued success and growth in 2018.
The market drivers that contributed to the company’s success in 2017 include the fact that 90 percent of cyberattacks occur at the software level, creating an urgent need for developer training that increases their ability to write secure code. Additionally, since many scanning solutions miss critical vulnerabilities, the company’s assessment services – which use a combination of expert consultation and technology – uncover and mitigate vulnerabilities that left unresolved would lead to costly hacks, breaches and major damage to an organization’s reputation and sales.
“2017 brought increased customer demand for our software security training and assessment services, helping us reach record levels of revenue, customer engagements and market success. We reached these milestones by providing the industry’s most extensive security training curriculum and flexible software security assessment services,” said Ed Adams, president and CEO of Security Innovation. “Our scalable training platform enables customers to meet their short and long-term training needs for all team roles and our professional services teams are unrivaled in their ability to identify vulnerabilities and risks, and provide contextual remediation advice.”
