2015: A successful year
The year is in its final stage and it is again time to review the last 12 months. We can already say that 2015 has been more successful than all previous years, which manifests itself in many areas and also brought a significant increase in sales. Many major national and international projects have been won and the number of customers has exceeded the 2,000 mark.
In addition to the CeBIT and the it-sa, we were for the first time represented at the RSA in San Francisco and for the second time at the GiSEC in Dubai.
The biggest success nevertheless was undoubtedly the launch of our new module INSIGHT, that we already introduced in a beta version at CeBIT in Hanover / Germany. The official launch followed with the new version 10.1, which also included many other interesting innovations apart from INSIGHT.
The response was tremendous and we can now say, that the approach to combine data protection and data analysis in one solution, meets the needs of IT security responsible in companies and public institutions a 100%. The possibility to obtain protection and analysis from a single source has led to many new project inquiries which let us look positivily into the new year already.
The product development is currently working on many new features and improvements, so that we can introduce a lot of new product technologies in 2016. Of course there will also be a lot of new evaluations available within INSIGHT. This way the data of our customers will be even safer and we should cause both attackers as well as competitors some headaches again.
The RSA in San Francisco in February 2016 will be the entry into the event year for us. CeBIT, GiSEC and numerous industry conferences will follow. Of course, the it-sa is also in the planning again. In the beginning of 2016 we will be launching a new website, which will contribute to the changing information needs in the internet.

EgoSecure mentioned in Gartner´s Magic Quadrant
In many international markets, particularly in the US, a mention in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is a MUST to be perceived by the decision makers. Through our successes and innovations in recent years, Gartner has now included us in its Magic Quadrant as well.
Endpoint with Egon
The quote “Facts, facts, facts!” has been used to advertise a well-known German magazine a few years ago. Do facts still have this status nowadays? Often speculations and assumptions are used rhetorically to stoke fear. Facts are hardly mentioned. Instead of thinking about the user and his benefits from a perfect protection, the profit is often in the focus in the IT security business.
As a small porcupine in the wild, I cannot speculate, I need facts about my attackers to protect myself. Otherwise I’ll turn into lunch very quickly.
My team at EgoSecure also focuses on facts. With the new module INSIGHT one must no longer protect himself from speculative threats but gets the facts to optimally protect himself.
You didn´t take a look yet? Well then go on! The version 10.2 of EgoSecure Data Protection is available for download.
And one thing is fact: the year draws to a close and Christmas is only a couple of days away. For that reason I and my team from EgoSecure wish you a nice and relaxing Christmas, a Happy New Year and an interesting start into the year 2016.
Egon and Your EgoSecure Team
