Softscan, a Danish IT security company developing and selling antivirus and spam solutions, is on its way to becoming a market leader in Scandinavia, measured by its client base. In 2005, the firm's number of business customers increased by 1,300 to 2,500, and revenues climbed by 60% to DKK 19 m (USD 3 m).
Thomas Holm Jensen, managing director of Softscan, says he expects continued growth of customer numbers, and that new antivirus and spam solutions from Scansoft will increase revenues to about DKK 29 m (USD 4.6 m) in 2006.
In addition to activities in Scandinavia, Softscan markets its products in Germany and the UK: "Denmark and Sweden are our largest markets because we have been present here for the longest time. But Norway is where we have had the greatest progress in the shortest time," says Thomas Holm Jensen.
Softscan was established in 2002 and is based in Copenhagen. The company's solutions are used for monitoring and scanning e-mail traffic of private and public sector companies. Customers include LEO Pharma, FLSmidth, Brüel International, IDG Denmark and Risø National Laboratory. The news was reported by Computerworld.
