Fashpoint innovation and business momentum gain steam in early 2021
News of Flashpoint’s expanded leadership team coincides with other positive business and product momentum from Flashpoint, including:
- With its best fiscal Q1 to date, Flashpoint is on track for continued record growth. Early 2021 business results propel Flashpoint forward, on track to meet year-end targets that will see Flashpoint continue its market-leading revenue and customer growth momentum, while maintaining strong balance sheets and cash flow fundamentals.
- Completion of the largest FUSE customer conference yet. On April 21, 2021, Flashpoint held its semi-annual customer conference, FUSE Spring 2021. With more than double the attendees compared to last year, Flashpoint welcomed hundreds of security and threat intelligence professionals to the day-long virtual event—making it the biggest and most successful FUSE event yet.
- Launch of two new products in under two weeks, showcases innovation. In late March 2021, Flashpoint first announced the addition of its Domain Monitoring and Takedowns offering. Then, in under two weeks in early April, Flashpoint rolled out its second new threat intelligence tool, Card Fraud Mitigation. Both of these new Flashpoint product offerings extend the capabilities organizations have at their disposal to mitigate fraud and protect against physical and cyber threats anywhere online.
- New and upcoming tailored event dashboards and UI enhancements. Flashpoint has also rolled out significant enhancements of its existing product lines to customers throughout the first several months of 2021, including new ways to search, monitor, and visualize its threat intelligence through the addition of the Flashpoint Explore Tab and the Ransomware Dashboard, which is dedicated to the faster detection and investigation of potential ransomware attacks.
- Rollout of first, native no-code automation use-cases via Flashpoint Flow. Through this quarter, Flashpoint is rolling out the first of many use-cases for its native, no-code automation engine, Flashpoint Flow. The seamless threat intelligence action that Flashpoint Flow’s no-code toolkit can orchestrate will dramatically speed up repetitive analyst tasks and recover crucial analyst time through faster and more comprehensive threat mitigation and response.
- Flashpoint named ‘Strong Performer’ in Forrester Wave. In the recently published market evaluation “Forrester Wave: External Threat Intelligence Services, Q1 2021,” the independent research firm found that “Flashpoint continues to excel in cyber-enabled human intelligence,” and that Flashpoint CCM is “one of the premier offerings” on the market today.
