Phenomenal Growth and Impact

Over the past year, we’ve achieved a 60% Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) and maintained an impressive yearly growth rate of 80%. This success is a testament to our innovative approach and the hard work of our talented team. One of our most significant accomplishments has been the evolution of our penetration testing services. Our Offensive SOC, a progressive and continuous penetration testing initiative, has been a game-changer. It’s delivering heavy impact, providing continuous value to our clients, and setting new industry standards.

We are incredibly proud to have received 33 glowing customer testimonials and several detailed case studies highlighting our effectiveness. Our customers are not just signing up for one-time services; many are committing to three-year contracts, reinforcing their trust in our continuous and proactive approach to cybersecurity.

Investing in Our Team

Our team’s growth and development have been pivotal to our success. Over the past year, our staff has attended numerous conferences, delivered dozens of talks, built and provided Capture the Flag competitions and participated in many training sessions to enhance their skills. This dedication has resulted in a multitude of new certifications, further strengthening our expertise and capabilities.

Strengthening Leadership

In our journey towards continuous improvement, we’ve also made strategic additions to our leadership team. Chris Dale is excited to share that he will be transitioning from the role as COO to focus more on research, penetration testing, product development, service enhancement, and expanding our offerings. This change will allow us to bring even more innovative solutions to our customers. We are very soon to announce our latest hire, stay tuned!

Expanding Our Services and with Partnerships

Our new incident response service is something which really stengthens our Active Focus offering. By combining our comprehensive overview of customers’ attack surfaces, risks, and vulnerabilities with our incident response support, we have created a powerful synergy. This unified approach has proven to be highly effective, maximizing the impact of our services. This addition is a significant step forward in our mission to provide expert talent, competency and services to our customers at the right time, at the right place. Furthermore, we have partnered with several key players in the industry, expanding our reach and bringing our innovative concepts to a broader range of customers.

Looking Ahead

As an offensive security provider, we are proud to have other cybersecurity companies actively using us as a partner. This collaborative spirit drives us forward, ensuring that we remain at the cutting edge of the industry.

We have a strong pipeline of incoming business, and we are more committed than ever to delivering top-tier security solutions. Our journey has just begun, and we are excited about what the future holds.

Thank you to our incredible team, our loyal customers, and our supportive partners for being part of this amazing journey. Here’s to many more years of growth, innovation, and success!
