Ken Østreng, President and CEO said: “2017 was a strong new business year for Confirmit, and most importantly has put us in an excellent position for an exceptional 2018. I’m particularly pleased that we achieved double-digit growth in the dynamic Asia-Pacific market. It’s also gratifying to note that scores of clients signed multi-year contracts to secure Confirmit as a long-term partner. We rounded out the year with the company’s largest sales quarter in our history for Q4 which is a real testament to our continued innovation.”

Alongside these new innovations Confirmit’s software has been successfully audited for SOC2 compliance, and it is prepared for the upcoming General Data Protection Directive (GDPR).
