Specops 2019: Heading in a New Direction

Specops Software is in the midst of a security revolution caused by digitalization and the move to the cloud. As companies put their data into the highly accessible cloud – protecting that data becomes a paramount concern. Notorious hacks and leaks such as Sony Pictures, LinkedIn, Yahoo, and Verizon, have driven the need to secure personal and business-critical information while regulatory organizations such as National Institute of Standards and Technology in the US and General Data Protection Regulation in the EU are forcing companies to employ better security practices. Failure to follow regulations will result in fines and, ultimately, loss of business or bankruptcy.

Specops Software’s role in this revolution is within securing access to data. Today this is done with passwords and Specops Software excels at managing passwords end-to-end. From setting hard-to-crack passwords to securely resetting passwords – we cover every step of this practice. Specops Software sets the standard for best practice in how and where to store critical data, such as encrypted passwords. Companies that perform IT audits recommend our solutions and counted among our password customers are the largest hotel chain in the world, the US military, major banks and IT service providers.

A shift is happening, where securing access to data will not only depend on passwords, but on alternative forms of authentication such as biometrics and combinations of authentication factors to increase security without compromising usability. This is why Specops Software is expanding its product portfolio into password and authentication management that will combine cutting edge technology with traditional IT security – creating a hybrid solution for companies wanting to take advantage of the cloud without compromising security. Launching a new product portfolio within authentication will meet a market need, but it also serves to accelerate the growth of Specops Software by opening a revenue stream higher on the value chain.

Specops Software’s headquarter is in Stockholm, Sweden with subsidiaries in UK, US and Canada. Specops Software has more than 40 employees globally.

Specops Software is in a growth period. Revenue is increasing by more than 15% with annual contract value growing more than 25% year over year. Our largest market is currently the United States, which makes up to more than 50% of the company revenue.
