Security and compliance vendor Tripwire has reported a 'record-setting' Q1 2019 for EMEA, with a bookings growth rate of 144% over the first quarter of 2018. Growth in the region is attributed to stronger partnerships.
“This marked the largest Q1 in Tripwire EMEA history,” said the firm. “Fuelled by increased interest in vulnerability management solutions as well as upticks in business from industrial, government and financial services sectors."
Neil Harvey VP of EMEA at Tripwire, stated: “It’s a critical time for cybersecurity in EMEA. With the introduction of new regulations like GDPR, increased geopolitical activity and constant news of data breaches, organisations have no choice but to pay more attention to security.
“At an increasing rate organisations are investing in getting the fundamentals of security right. Our customers know they need to strengthen their security posture, and not just meet bare-minimum regulatory requirements.
“Growth of our vulnerability management business is an indication that organisations are addressing one of the leading root causes of data breaches and cyber incidents.”
