MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – March 6, 2019 – HyTrust picked up strong momentum in 2018, with over 100 percent year-over-year growth in sales and more than double the number of new customers than it added in 2017. The company’s robust performance across a range of industries points to an increased need for HyTrust solutions as enterprises grapple with sensitive workloads, compliance and data privacy in multi-cloud environments.
“2018 was a great year for HyTrust as evidenced by the trust put into us by our current and many new customers,” said HyTrust Chairman and CEO John De Santis. “It leaves us wonderfully positioned to help in our customers’ current and future strategies to build safe and compliant IT infrastructure solutions as more enterprise workloads move to increasingly complex multi-cloud environments.”
Key Highlights From 2018
- Total sales grew 106 percent.
- Customer growth went from 159 in 2017 to 342 by end of 2018.
- Significant growth seen in both data security and policy automation.
- Major new accounts and expansions in HyTrust’s current installed base across a range of industries including automotive, finance, government and legal.
