Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, today announced strong 2017 results, including 35% revenue growth in Q4 2017 and substantial revenue increase in multiple industries, such as finance, healthcare, and energy & utilities. Named one of the fastest-growing companies in North America, Netwrix reported considerable growth across Asia Pacific, France, Belgium and other regions, as well as substantial upgrades to the Netwrix Auditor platform and new partnerships.
2017 was remarkable for the global rise in ransomware, as well as several headline-making breaches that resulted in tremendous damage to sensitive data, such as Equifax case. Growing cyber threats and increasing complexity of IT environments are forcing organizations to revise their IT security practices and become more vigilant about what’s going on in their IT environments. We expect a rise in demand for products that enable companies to keep user activity under control and evaluate risks to their systems and data, so they can spot and fix security gaps before hackers take advantage of them.
