Gazzang Looks Toward 2014 Following Year of Record Growth

AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--

Gazzang, the big data security experts, today announced year-end results for 2013, posting revenue growth of more than 250 percent year over year. The company also more than doubled its global employee base in 2013.

"The demand for data encryption and key management in big data and cloud environments has never been greater," said Larry Warnock, CEO of Gazzang. "Our performance in the fourth quarter and for the full year is a result of our continued product innovation, commitment to customer service and ongoing investment in our partnerships. As enterprises migrate more sensitive business data and processes to the cloud, I expect to see increased demand for our high-performance, massively scalable data security solutions."

Year-end highlights for 2013 include:

  • Strong sales: Enterprise customer wins and expansions during the year included a global provider of healthcare products, office supplies and industrial equipment; an integrated managed health-care consortium; a multinational pharmaceutical company; a global provider of insurance, annuities and benefits programs; and one of the world's largest semiconductor companies.
  • Product innovation: Gazzang enhanced its product portfolio with Gazzang CloudEncrypt™, a solution purpose-built to secure data in-flight and at-rest within Amazon EMR. The company also expanded the use cases for its encryption and key management products, zNcrypt™ and zTrustee™ respectively. Gazzang also announced a security solution for GlusterFS-backed OpenStack public and private clouds, and became first security solution to be made available for the Rackspace managed and public Cloud Big Data platforms.
