“In 2012, we expanded our addressable market through organic innovation, new partnerships and strategic acquisitions,” said Jerry M. Kennelly, Chairman and CEO. “Revenue dollars grew more than $111 million for the full year, with most of that growth from WAN optimization. Performance management was the fastest growing product line, underpinning our strategic decision to acquire OPNET. Looking ahead, we will benefit from continued growth in our WAN optimization business and performance management product suite. I am very optimistic as we enter our first year as a billion-dollar-plus revenue company.”
