CARLSBAD, Calif. -- Breach Security, Inc., a leader in web application security, today announced breakout growth in 2007 with revenues climbing 500 percent year-over-year and 1,000 percent quarter-over-quarter.

The company attracted over 100 new customers worldwide and generated repeat business from 50 existing customers.

In 2007, Breach Security successfully reached critical financial milestones by attracting a unique portfolio of customers across every vertical—many leaders in their field. The company has established a firm foundation for both domestic and international growth and validated the value of its security products in the global marketplace.

Breach Security also announced that its vice president, worldwide channels, Mike Pierce, has been elevated to chief executive officer.
