14 Apr 2010

Dublin-headquartered cloud security technology firm Vordel has reported an 85pc increase in first-quarter revenues – the most successful in the history of the company.

In Q1 2010, Vordel added 10 enterprise customers in new markets including retail, human resources and online gaming, as well as generating business in the banking and government sectors.

Some recent new customer signings include the Department of Homeland Security, US Department of Justice, FAA, ASR Nederland, BNP Paribas Fortis Bank, 3, Barclays Bank and an OEM partnership with Bull Group.

The company’s rapid growth demonstrates that Vordel has consolidated its position as the premier provider of high-performance, enterprise-level hardware and software products enabling enterprises to confidently deploy SOA and cloud-linked applications.

The company’s flagship product, the Vordel Gateway, is widely recognised as the fastest and most powerful SOA appliance on the market today.

The company also offers theVordel Cloud Service Broker product, enabling a migratory path for large enterprises seeking to leverage cloud computing in a secure and controlled manner. The company is running a pilot invitational program for Vordel Cloud Service Broker.

“The continued demand for Vordel’s SOA Governance products is driven by the enterprise’s demands for efficient management of web services with maximum uptime and security protection,” Vic Morris, Vordel’s CEO explained.

“As such, Vordel’s strategy is to continue building on its SOA heritage and simultaneously address the needs of enterprises who wish to securely connect to the cloud.

“Uptake of our Vordel Cloud Service Broker pilot program is proving very positive and we will be making further announcements related to enterprise cloud customers in the near future,” Morris said.

Vordel is currently expanding its in-market operations in the EMEA and US marketplaces and later this quarter will be releasing Vordel 6, the next generation of its SOA product suite.
