CHANTILLY, Va., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PhishMe Inc., creator of the industry-leading phishing mitigation and detection platform, today reported extraordinary corporate performance for the 2013 fiscal year. Bookings grew 130% over the previous year and the company achieved significant increases across all key corporate performance measures, including the largest fourth quarter in company history.
The threat landscape is driving adoption of solutions that complement security technology investments and address the human element of the security equation. Recent research conducted by CyberEdge Group states that malware and phishing related attacks are the greatest concerns (3.26 out of 5, respectively) among cyber threats. The study also concluded that low security awareness among employees is the greatest inhibitor to adequately defending against cyber threats according to responding organizations.
As a result, PhishMe continues to demonstrate outstanding growth across all major vertical sectors, including financial services, energy, manufacturing, and healthcare by focusing on changing user security behavior. During 2013, the number of PhishMe enterprise customers increased by more than 66% percent, aligning with other strong indicators for continued expansion and growth in 2014.
"We are delighted with our performance and the market demand to address human security vulnerabilities in the enterprise with a new approach to security awareness and training," said Rohyt Belani, CEO of PhishMe. "Given our explosive growth, successful track record, and customer satisfaction, we are confident that our worldwide revenue will continue growing aggressively in 2014."
