A word from our CEO

Hi, I'm Stu Wilson, CEO of Endace.

Now it’s official, I can finally share some exciting news. Following a recently completed management led buyout, Endace is once again a privately owned company

I have been at Endace for over 10 years now and been involved with some fantastic people in evolving the company from an OEM manufacturer with innovative technology into the leading systems company it is today. Working with smart people and loyal customers to grow the business over those 10 years has been very satisfying.

We now enter a new chapter. On November 1st 2015, management led a buyout of Endace from Emulex Corp., the company’s former owner, because we realised our value was best expressed as an independent company once again.

Even before incorporation in 2001, Endace defined the packet capture market, becoming the gold standard for high accuracy network recording for critical networks at customers including telcos and service providers, banks, high frequency traders, governments and large enterprises.  In 2006, with the launch of the first EndaceProbe appliance, we established the “packet capture appliance” market.   This history of innovation is in our DNA, and we continue to innovate as we bring new products to our customers.

We are continuing to invest heavily in research and development and we have a number of industry-leading new products which we'll be announcing over the next few weeks. Our customer base around the world is growing - as is demand for our products. So we’re in great shape, and very excited about our future.

Our strength lies in our depth of experience and, importantly, in our relationship with our customers. We know our technology and our customers very well. Over the years, we’ve worked closely with customers to build a deep understanding of their needs. We’ve used that knowledge to inform our product innovation and deliver products that our customers need and value. It has been a great partnership in the true sense of the word. So I'm pleased to say we still have the same great team of people and customers on-board. Many of our staff and our customers have been with us for well over a decade and we look forward to continuing this close partnership for many more years to come.

Over the past month or so, I've been travelling around the world meeting with customers. It's been extremely rewarding to see how Endace technology is being used to solve some truly major challenges and a great opportunity to talk directly to the people using our products about where they see their needs evolving, and how we can continue to innovate and lead the market.

In coming weeks, you’ll see us resuming our Endace branding. While our clothes might change, what won’t change is our total commitment to producing quality products and backing that up with the best service. We’ve also launched this new website. Take a look around - you’ll see we’ve got some great new products.

We’re very grateful for your loyalty over the years that you’ve been a customer, and we are really looking forward to working with you to continue to deliver innovative solutions to your security and network management challenges.

Finally, please do get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions. We'd love to hear from you.

Stu Wilson
