SAN JOSE, Calif. , Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Secure, Inc. reported another record year at the 2008 ASIS show (www.quantumsecure.com), highlighted by several key 2008 strategic growth initiatives and triple-digit, year-over-year sales growth.
Quantum Secure is the exclusive provider of enterprise software to manage and streamline security identities, compliance, events and operations across disparate physical security systems. Quantum Secure's primary 2008 milestones included the update of its flagship SAFE software portfolio, the continued development of high-quality partnerships and the strengthening of its leadership team.
The company noted the success of these focused strategies has contributed to Quantum Secure's recent customer wins, such as well-known enterprise organizations Adobe Systems, First Data Corporation, Juniper Networks and the Greater Toronto Airport Authority. Other customer wins include major international airports, large healthcare organizations and highly regulated government agencies.
Quantum Secure also recently launched the third generation of its leading SAFE suite of software. SAFE 3.0 reflects the company's expanding market reach in several key vertical markets, and includes new applications that provide specific industry-best practices for the unique security requirements of these highly regulated and highly complex industries. Other enhancements include an expanded SAFE Self-Service feature, a unique and easy-to-use administration function that lets authorized personnel log into a secure site to file access permissions and requests.
"A key driver of our growth has been the continued evolution of our focus," said Ajay Jain , Quantum Secure president and CEO. "Convergence is a given. We've successfully positioned ourselves as the clear leaders in that arena. Now, with SAFE 3.0, we are able to set ourselves apart further in bringing value to both our partners and our customers with critical industry-focused solutions."
Jain also noted Quantum Secure's growing roster of high-visibility systems integrators (SIs), value-added resellers (VARs) and channel partners as a major asset in the company's expanded commitment to deliver customized security compliance and identity management solutions.
Quantum Secure forged several new channel partnerships in 2008, including Johnson Controls, IBM, and Deloitte. With these new partner organizations, Quantum Secure's current partner list includes Oracle Corporation, Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, General Electric, CoreStreet, Lenel, Active Identity and the Open Security Exchange.
In September, the company reinforced its commitment to fostering strategic and VAR partnership growth with the hire of Bruce Gerbl as channel manager. The 20-year security systems and consulting veteran most recently served as global construction accounts manager with Johnson Controls, a key Quantum Secure VAR partner.
The company also recently expanded its executive team to include former VeriSign executive, Dan Yetso , as director of marketing, expanding its enterprise security focus. In addition to his success at VeriSign, Yetso founded QuikSix Marketing, a brand development consultancy serving a wide range of technology clients. Earlier in his career, Yetso spent several years serving as director of marketing communications for Fujitsu PC Corporation and then enterprise software start-up Extricity Software.
"With the additions of Dan and Bruce to our team, we are better equipped to meet the growing demand for integrated physical security and identity management," said Jain. "And with several new partners and clients, as well as a new, in-demand version of our software, we don't expect our momentum to slow any time soon."
