SIEM and Log Management Vendor Q1 Labs Announces Exceptional Business Success and Customer Acquisition Growth for 2009
Q1 Labs, a global provider of total security intelligence products, today announced it has doubled its customer base from 2008 to 2009. The company acquired 193 new customers in Q4’09 alone, bringing its total customer count to 971 customers. The company has also seen significant growth worldwide, acquiring over 200 new customers outside of North America.
Q1 Labs’ five year average revenue growth in excess of 70 percent has enabled the company to increase its headcount by 50 percent in 2009 while increasing profitability over 2008.
“2009 was, by far, our best year yet. Organizations, in particular large companies, fully appreciate the need for a total security intelligence solution, a requirement which is driving the demand for QRadar – the most intelligent, integrated and automated SIEM in the market,” said Shaun McConnon, CEO of Q1 Labs. “The security marketplace has clearly endorsed our next-generation product family and the security intelligence we provide. This is demonstrated through both our customer satisfaction results, which reached an all-time high in 2009, and our ever-increasing customer count. Our success in 2009 has positioned us well for an even more successful 2010, as we continue to take share from the competition, especially in large enterprises and state, local, and Federal agencies.”
The company also had a number of significant customer acquisitions in 2009: one customer providing a Q1 Labs’ enabled service rated at 400,000 events per second; a global carrier using QRadar to monitor one-third of the Internet; and a retailer taking feeds from over 50,000 devices. Together these opportunities demonstrate Q1 Labs’ ability to scale in support of the most demanding large enterprise or carrier requirements, and well beyond the capabilities of first generation SIEM products.
In addition to acquiring an unprecedented amount of customers both in North America and Europe, the company also expanded its channel footprint by certifying the security market’s best VARs and integrators, as well as growing its OEM business by over 100 percent.
