As we bid farewell to another eventful year, it’s time to reflect on the milestones, challenges, and triumphs that have shaped Conceal over the past twelve months. This year has been a testament to our commitment to advancing cybersecurity and protecting our clients from ever-evolving digital threats.
Expanding Our Product Range
Launch of New Features: This year saw the introduction of a series of groundbreaking features and products at Conceal. Notably, we achieved extensions for Firefox and Microsoft Edge, significantly broadening our browser security coverage. We also saw the launch of advanced tech alliances and integrations, enhancing user security and experience. Some of our most notable and impactful highlights include coverage for the Firefox browser, an innovative end-user information panel, a device-based installation process, and MSI installer package support.
AI Engine: We proudly upgraded to our AI engine, a leap forward in real-time web page analysis. This engine is designed to understand patterns in behavior, structure, and content, elevating ConcealBrowse’s analytic capabilities.
Upgrades to Existing Features: This year, in additional to releasing our SherpaAI engine, we enhanced the end-user experience with upgraded dashboard elements, search by device labels, and notable integrations into platforms like Connectwise, Datto, Splunk, Devo, and SentinelOne.
Growth and Expansion
New Partnerships: This year marked the forging of significant partnerships, contributing immensely to Conceal growth. Each partnership brought unique strengths to our platform. These partnerships include Thousand Guards, MorugaIT, Grove, Kompingo, Hyprfire, Brigantia, NobleTec, Binary Defense, SentryMark, White Rock Cybersecurity, CyberForce Security and Next Generation Security.
Expansion into New Markets: Our venture into new markets has been a resounding success, particularly in the MSP sector. We’ve seen a 450% quarter-over-quarter growth from CYQ2 to Q3, with similar trends projected for CYQ4. Key expansions included entering the Japanese market with SentryMark, significant growth in the UK/EU through partnerships with NGS, Kompingo, and Brigantia, and establishing our presence in New Zealand.
Conceal Community Initiatives: The launch of a free NFR Community for MSPs and offering 5 Free licenses for Enterprises has proven to be a successful strategy, continually attracting more users.
Navigating the Cybersecurity Landscape
This year, the cybersecurity world has been fraught with challenges, particularly the rise in ransomware and credential theft. Conceal has proactively adapted to these threats, ensuring robust protection for our clients.
Internal Growth and Development
Our internal structure saw significant changes, especially with the transition of BDRs to ISRs. This internal development has been pivotal in managing our rapid growth, particularly in the MSP sector.
Empowering Users and Organizations with ConcealBrowse
As Conceal celebrates a year of significant achievements and advancements in cybersecurity, we’re proud to share some remarkable success stories that highlight our impact:
Enhancing User Security Despite Training Limitations: A key testament to ConcealBrowse’s effectiveness comes from an appreciative user: “I like that ConcealBrowse is an antidote to the failure of people to follow their Security Awareness Training. They click on email links and search result links despite any training. Especially, I like that ConcealBrowse adds a critical layer of protection against the growing threat of ransomware.” This feedback underscores our solution’s ability to compensate for human error and provide a robust defense against emerging cyber threats.
Collaborative Success with VAR Partnerships: Our collaboration with Value-Added Resellers (VARs) has been particularly fruitful. One Account Executive/Marketing Events Coordinator shares, “The team at Conceal is very collaborative, flexible, and adaptable, fitting our customers’ needs across various verticals. They’ve gone out of their way for account mapping and solution overviews, leading to co-selling opportunities.” This partnership has been pivotal in scaling our solutions to businesses of all sizes, proving the adaptability and effectiveness of ConcealBrowse.
Transformative Impact on Toyota Tanzania: At Toyota Tanzania, IT Manager Abdulaziz Raudha hails ConcealBrowse as a game-changer: “Conceal’s Zero Trust approach and AI-driven technology offered a game-changing paradigm in cybersecurity… You can relax at home knowing you are secure.” The implementation of our solutions has significantly strengthened their cybersecurity posture, showcasing the power of AI in contemporary digital defense.
City of St. Peters – A Model for Municipal Cybersecurity: The City of St. Peters’ integration of ConcealBrowse into their IT infrastructure demonstrates our solution’s versatility and effectiveness in public sector environments. An IT administrator from the city lauds the product: “ConcealBrowse’s innovative approach to cybersecurity… has significantly enhanced our network security while maintaining user-friendliness and minimal administrative overhead.” This case exemplifies our commitment to providing solutions that are both powerful and user-friendly.
