Sectigo, experts in digital certificates and automated Certificate Lifecycle Management (CLM), has announced record growth for 2021, including a more than 20 per cent increase in enterprise sales and an increase in net-new tier 1 logos.
Reasons for Sectigo’s growth included over 20 per cent growth in enterprise sales, former Gartner VP and identity cryptography and cybersecurity visionary, David Mahdi joining as Chief Strategy Officer and CISO Advisor in December, and acquiring website security protection and monitoring provider, SiteLock, in May.
Bill Holtz, CEO, Sectigo said, "we're thrilled with our 2021 results. It was a pivotal year for Sectigo as we disrupted industry norms to help our customers solve real-world challenges establishing digital trust for any digital identity, regardless of its origin. Our modern approach to identity-first security combined with our SiteLock portfolio, and the expansion of our leadership team, puts us in a category above our competitors that our customers, partners, and the market recognise."
Industry recognition has also equated to Sectigo’s growth in 2021. Accolades include being named one of The Software Report’s Top 25 Cybersecurity Companies of 2021, Tech Breakthrough’s Overall Encryption Solution Provider of the Year in the 2021 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards, and Gold Winner for New Security Software Product-Service of the Year.
David Mahdi added, “it is an exciting time to be at Sectigo with the rapid growth of its team, solutions, and addressable markets and its focus on interoperability and openness. Our top priority is to help our customers future-proof their organisations against today’s increasingly complex threats, and this starts with reducing IT infrastructure complexity to enable orchestration and automation across all identity management solutions, establishing a solid foundation of digital trust. That is what Sectigo is delivering to its customers, and we will continue to lead the way in this new year to ensure a secure digital future in 2022.”
