Credant’s third quarter 2012, compared to its performance in the same quarter in 2011, saw the following increases:

  • 49 percent growth in software bookings, and

Expanded Worldwide Partner Program Showing Results

Launched in 2012, Credant’s partner program allows OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), VARs (value added resellers), system integrators and security consulting firms to offer data protection solutions to customers and prospects. In addition to adding new partners in the US and EMEA, the Credant partner program has expanded to APAC and most recently Latin America. Credant continues to demonstrate a strong commitment to partner success, providing best-in-class data protection solutions to their customers.

Continued Product Advances in Data Protection

Protecting sensitive and confidential data is the core of Credant’s value proposition. The most recent Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection recognizes Credant as a visionary, based upon the firm's innovative functionality and broad platform support. Credant released Credant Enterprise Edition 7.3, protecting data stored on removable media and OPAL-compliant Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs), allowing enterprises to be confident their sensitive data is secure.

The company continues to extend its Data Protection Platform, offering organizations control of their information across devices, and is primed to release its cloud protection and mobile device security solutions in early Q4.

“Our history of delivering products and technologies that protect data across its lifecycle has positioned the company for record growth as companies struggle with quickly changing business and computing models,” said Bob Heard, CEO and founder, Credant Technologies. “Today’s data security market and the need to protect data wherever it is accessed or stored, validates Credant strategy and underlying technology.”
