2016 was a year of tremendous growth here at Menlo Security, and we are very proud to have expanded the community of end-users protected by Menlo’s Isolation Platform by over 50 times!
We grew our existing deployments while adding many new customers who are “all in” with Menlo isolating their web and email traffic from malware. These customer wins are great validation that we are solving a significant problem in the security community. We’d like to share a few quotes from some of our notable customers:
JPMorgan Chase & Co.
“We were impressed by Menlo Security’s innovative approach to protecting the firm from web-based threats. Its Isolation Platform has been integrated into our enterprise with zero impact to users, providing a seamless user experience for our employees.” ~ Rohan Amin, Global CISO, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
“Menlo Security holds the promise to eliminate the risk from targeted phishing attacks, especially those that attempt to steal user credentials.” ~ Gene Casady, Manager Threat Monitoring & Response Center, Macy's
“After evaluating several options, we selected Menlo Security because we believe their cutting-edge isolation technology provides a unique architectural approach to eliminating malware from web and email.” ~ Akihiro Okada, Corporate Executive Officer, Head of Security Management Service Business Unit, Fujitsu Ltd.
Internet Initiative Japan
"IIJ is adding a secure browser capability to the IIJ Secure Web Gateway Service offering based on Menlo Security’s patented ACR technology. The service reduces risk by running web content in an isolated environment.”
From the IIJ Press Release
In addition to the dramatic customer growth, we hit a milestone by signing up over 100 distribution, system integrator and reseller partners for our SafeToClick Global Channel Partner Program. We also more than doubled our employee count in 2016, investing heavily in delivering success and innovation to the hundreds of customers engaged with Menlo all around the world.
Our cloud operations team delivered a fantastic global cloud service uptime of 99.95% over the last twelve months, on par or better than the top global cloud providers.
All of this great news didn’t go unnoticed. We won over a dozen different awards including JPMorgan’s “2016 Innovator” award for special impact in their production environment, finalist for Most Innovative Company at the RSA 2016 show, chosen for the prestigious SINET 16, and selected as a Red Herring Global 100 Company.
While the product adoption, reseller expansion and customer growth have been fantastic, we couldn’t be growing at this rate without the support of our investors. JP Morgan Chase came on board last year as a strategic investor and joined an already impressive group of venture investors. With that in mind we would like to sincerely thank General Catalyst, JPMorgan Chase, Osage University Partners, Sutter Hill and Engineering Capital for helping fuel our growth as we take our solutions to market.
Happy New Year from the entire Menlo Team!
