Fuelled by 2020’s accelerated pace of industrial digitisation, the company’s market share hit 50% in key industrial
Nozomi Networks Inc.
, the leader in OT and IoT security, today announced record 2020 growth and tremendous momentum moving into 2021. As
industrial and critical infrastructure cybersecurity threats made operational resilience a top priority for large
enterprises around the world, the company experienced 110% growth in annual recurring revenue (ARR) and doubled its
customer base with a 90% increase in new customer revenues. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital
transformation, sped industrial connectivity and driven requirements to support remote work. In response, large
enterprises turned to Nozomi Networks to implement projects to secure their operations and address emerging threats to
the supply chain.
In 2020 Nozomi Networks’ market share neared 50% among the world’s top pharmaceutical, oil and gas, electric utility and
mining operations. The number of devices monitored by Nozomi Networks solutions skyrocketed by more than 5,000% as the
company successfully expanded its market to include IoT network cybersecurity. Continuing its commitment to innovation,
the company launched Vantage, the first SaaS-based OT and IoT network visibility and security solution.
“While our growth is truly extraordinary given the challenges of 2020, what makes the Nozomi team most proud is how we
helped customers survive and thrive this past year,” said Nozomi Networks CEO Edgard Capdevielle. “As pharmaceutical
companies raced for a vaccine, they knew that cybersecurity for their research, manufacturing and remote workers was
essential. They turned to Nozomi Networks for help and we delivered. In other industries from automotive to advanced
manufacturing, to transportation systems, energy companies and smart cities, Nozomi won new customers and grew our
deployments with existing clients. Multimillion-dollar deals are now the norm.”
According to Gartner Research, operational resilience is the top priority for security professionals, and organisations
are looking to converge all their security and safety disciplines to support this renewed focus. “Advances in cloud and
edge computing, robotics, embedded software, artificial intelligence (AI) or the emergence of 5G technology are all
opening new digital transformation frontiers, but also new security and safety challenges that straddle the cyber and
physical worlds in operational or mission-critical environments.”*
Nozomi Networks responded early with AI-powered network visibility and security solutions that integrate and work across
IT, OT, edge, and cloud environments. Vantage, the company’s recently announced SaaS-based offering, and subscription
pricing options across the company’s entire product portfolio, make it possible for customers to leverage cloud-based
industrial cybersecurity that enables them to scale quickly while minimising complexity and cost.
“While our deployment teams brought thousands of sites online, our engineers paved the way for the future with the
introduction of Vantage, our cloud-based SaaS offering,” said Andrea Carcano, Nozomi Networks Co-founder and CPO. “Now
customers can get Nozomi Networks’ industry leading security and visibility solutions via the cloud, which enables them
to scale quickly while minimising complexity and cost. Although 2020 was both challenging and extraordinary, 2021 will
be even more exciting as customers use our innovations to speed the path to a modern and digitally transformed world.”
