Rapid Customer Adoption of the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform, Added Alliances and Strategic Partnerships, Contribute to Record Growth
BALTIMORE, Feb. 1, 2017 – Light Point Security, creators of the Light Point Web Full Isolation PlatformTM, the only browser isolation technology to provide full isolation from all web content and seamless integration with existing browsers, today announced record results for year ending December 31, 2016. In a year full of many achievements, Light Point Security boosted its revenue by over 450% and expanded its global reach via added customers, partners and resellers, and the addition of a West Coast office.
“2016 was an extraordinary year of growth for Light Point Security and we are pleased to be entering the new year on such an exciting growth trajectory,” said Zuly Gonzalez, Co-founder and CEO of Light Point Security. “Our significant growth across all markets and geographies proves what we’ve known from the start, that traditional methods for protecting enterprises from web-based threats are outdated and ineffective. Our growth in 2016 is clear evidence that the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform is fulfilling pent-up demand for a proven, next generation means for protecting against malicious web content.”
The value of isolating browsing activities from endpoints and corporate networks was further validated when Gartner cited remote browsing as one of the Top 10 Technologies for Information Security in 2016.
Triple-digit Growth in New Business

The Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform is the gold standard for protecting against malicious website content. The product’s maturity and stability were leading factors driving a 400% increase in partnerships, including adding World Wide Technology, one of the largest resellers in the world. Many other partnerships were established in 2016, inside and outside the U.S. and in strategic vertical markets.
Light Point Security further enhanced the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform with new key capabilities including performance improvements and an impressive data analytics suite added to the Administrative Dashboard.
