The increased sales figures, in conjunction with several strategic corporate initiatives, underscore Anonymizer’s continued market success and leadership in online privacy and identity protection solutions.

Growth in Enterprise & Government Sectors

Continued Strength in Consumer Sector
The consumer business continues to be strong, with millions of consumer users worldwide. Anonymizer this quarter entered into a strategic alliance with Stealth Ideas, Inc., which bundled the Anonymous Surfingâ„? technology into the StealthSurfer II USB drive. The product, which enables users to surf the Internet safely from any location, was launched in the same quarter. In addition, Anonymizer consumer products now offer protection from continually evolving Internet threats, such as evil twins, phishing scams, and pharming attacks.

New Executive Strengthens Management Team
