SecurityAppSense have announced record results for the first half of its fiscal year 2016 as demand for its endpoint security solution soars.

The leading provider of user environment management (UEM) solutions for the secure endpoint saw new orders in the six months ended 31st December 2015 grow 20% year-over-year, marking a record for them both in terms of total bookings and revenue.

Scott Arnold, President and CEO at AppSense, said: “We want to thank our customers and partners who enabled AppSense to achieve strong growth globally.

“Accelerated demand for AppSense solutions that help secure and optimise endpoints has driven record results in 2015 and helped grow our installed base to 9 million seats.”

AppSense have continued to see acceleration in key growth indicators, including the number of net new customers, which increased by 230 companies during the first half of the fiscal year. Additionally, the number of seven-figure deals rose fivefold during the first half, compared to the same period last year.

A key factor in AppSense’s success was continued growth in the channel. A renewed focus on channel partner engagement and enablement has led to an increase in partner-driven sales across all regions. In fact, in the last six months, 84% of new sales were executed via the channel.

AppSense marked a number of other milestones during the first half of the fiscal 2016 period, including:

• Rapid adoption of the AppSense Application Manager endpoint security solution with half a million security seats added;
• President and CEO Scott Arnold named a Top Industry Innovator in the Annual 2015 CRN Top 100 Channel Executives List;
• The delivery of a DesktopNow Installation Blueprint for Citrix Workspace Cloud which enables the provisioning of a complete AppSense DesktopNow installation from anywhere;
• Recognition by 451 Research as “The Missing Link for Virtual Desktops” in their November 2015 Impact Report.
