RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Webfargo Data Security, Inc., the Triangle's only locally owned provider specializing in proactive IT security services, announced today that 2012 was the best year in the company’s history. This growth comes on top of that experienced during the previous year, which also set records.
For over a decade, Webfargo has provided North Carolina’s leading companies with proactive security services, working behind the scenes to help secure networks while maintaining usability. Since its inception in 2001, Webfargo has seen steady growth across the board, with 2012 beating all previous years.
Webfargo’s biggest gains came in its Managed Services division. This was largely due to two factors: 1) continued momentum in the managed Cisco space, which became a focus in 2011; and 2) its innovative, new Managed Support Service. These gains resulted in a 35% increase in managed revenue. Webfargo’s suite of managed services and solid customer base positions the company well for 2013.
“Our clients responded to our new Managed Services offerings,” said Tyler Salisbury, Director of Sales. “They are happy to rid themselves of the headaches that come with day-to-day security management and put their security in the hands of experts.”
Another area of significant growth was Vulnerability Assessment Services, which increased more than fivefold over the previous year.
Webfargo’s success is due largely to organic growth. “We owe a lot to our clients, and the power of word of mouth,” said Tyler Salisbury. “We’ve provided high-end security services for over a decade, and we are proud to have built a reputation for top-tier expertise. Referrals from our clients are the biggest compliments we can receive.”
Webfargo expects the growth to continue in 2013, thanks in part to its managed security contracts and its long-term, stable client base. For more information about Webfargo, please visit www.webfargo.com.
