Secure Passage Announces Record-Breaking Year

Company's sales revenue for fiscal year 2009 grew 80 percent
OVERLAND PARK, KS — Secure Passage announced a record-breaking year with strong growth in both Europe and the Americas. During one of the economy's most difficult years, the company's sales revenue for fiscal year 2009 grew 80 percent and its customer base increased 50 percent over 2008. More than 30 percent of revenue was from Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) that chose the company's flagship product, FireMon, to capitalize on the growing demand for managed firewall services. Secure Passage's record growth rate proves that despite the recessionary economy, enterprises and government agencies are purchasing effective firewall management solutions in order to protect against cyberthreats, achieve compliance and improve operational efficiency.

New customers added in 2009 include companies representing major U.S. and international organizations from the airline, automotive, financial, and technology industries. In addition, Secure Passage signed a single deal to manage more than 10,000 devices with one of the world's largest technology companies -- further validating the firewall management market's continued growth.

Furthering its commitment to innovation and industry standards, Secure Passage joined the PCI Security Standards Council in 2009 as a new Participating Organization; this role enables Secure Passage to stay at the forefront of regulations and provide feedback on standards.

"Even with the tough economy in 2009, we achieved our aggressive goals. This was due to excellent customer service and rapid delivery of innovative new products and releases that produce an immediate ROI for our customers," said Jody Brazil, co-founder and president of Secure Passage. "We had a record-breaking year filled with successes and are positioned for continued growth worldwide in 2010. The demand for our solutions will become even greater as overburdened security teams turn to our solutions to more efficiently manage their security operations."
