As we kick off 2012 with several major product enhancements we'll be publicizing soon, I'd also like to take a minute to reflect on the record year Linoma Software had in 2011, with over 40% growth in new business.
Many factors contributed to our banner performance. For one, meeting compliance requirements for data privacy and security is a huge issue for most organizations, so we have been working hard to help meet these challenges.
We have made significant R&D investments over the past 12 months in our products, including major enhancements to our GoAnywhere managed file transfer solutions, as well as new features for our Crypto Complete™ encryption product.
We also gained many new customers outside of the United States as we have partnered with several new international resellers for our products, and seen increased sales performance from our established distributors. Data security is a worldwide challenge that has no borders.
Another factor in our growth has to do with the openness of our GoAnywhere products, which allows them to run on a variety of platforms including IBM i, Windows, Linux, Solaris and AIX. This gives our customers a choice on the operating system environment that best meets their needs.
We've enjoyed talking with many of you over the last year. If you are coming to any of the trade shows that we'll be exhibiting at this year, please stop by and say hello. Otherwise, give us a call or email if you have any questions or comments about our solutions.
We sincerely appreciate the support of our loyal customers and look forward to working with you this year. If you're not yet a customer, we hope to talk with you soon about how we can help you solve any data automation or security challenges in 2012.
We're ramping up our activity on various social networks, so we also hope you'll connect with us there.
Linoma wishes you a successful 2012!
