NetWitness Reports Major Revenue Growth In 2009

Number of enterprises customers also rose

Herndon, VA " January 4, 2010 " NetWitness Corporation, the world leader in automated threat intelligence and real-time network forensics, reported exceptional performance for the 2009 fiscal year. The company achieved revenues in 2009 that were 220 percent of the previous year and significant increases in all key corporate performance measures, including six straight quarters of profitability. NetWitness' ability to deliver aggressive growth in turbulent economic times while maintaining profitability is a tribute to its ability to deliver compelling security value to a broad market.

NetWitness continues to demonstrate strong momentum across all industries where security focus exists and organizations understand advanced threats and the need for continuous network security monitoring. During 2009, enterprise deployments of NetWitness increased by 70 percent across U.S. Government agencies. The company also added new customers and sold follow-on deployments worldwide to the Global 1000 in the financial services, critical infrastructure, technology and manufacturing sectors. The number of NetWitness enterprise customers increased by more than 50 percent in 2009, a strong indicator for continued expansion and growth in 2010.

"Attacks are now targeted at specific resources and are designed to evade detection," said Mark Nicolett, VP Distinguished Analyst at Gartner, Inc. "The evidence of malicious activity is usually hiding in plain sight, and is undetected due to an inability to discern a pattern of abnormal activity or access from the normal activity patterns. Recognition and discovery of the weak signals of abnormal activity are now critical components of an organization's overall data protection and security strategy."

In 2009, NetWitness expanded its Herndon, Va. headquarters to accommodate the significant increase in sales, marketing, development, support, and engineering staff driven by customer adoption around the globe. NetWitness also opened its first international headquarters in the U.K. based on rapid customer growth within Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) with additional expansion supporting continental Europe, Latin America and the Asia Pacific geographies. In addition to North American channel growth, NetWitness also added security-focused partners across the U.K., Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America.

"Despite the challenging worldwide economic climate, NetWitness surpassed its growth and profitability objectives for 2009," said Dana Duffy, CFO, NetWitness Corporation. "Given our explosive growth, successful track record, and customer satisfaction, we are confident that our 2010 performance will continue to show aggressive revenue increases worldwide."
