Tessian opens US Office after over 300% revenue growth in 2018

Office opening in New York kick starts the company’s global expansion

LONDON – 01 November 2018 – Tessian, the UK technology start-up transforming the way enterprises secure their communication channels, announces it has opened its first US office in New York as part of its global expansion plans. With stringent security measures and the number of data breaches increasing, the US market has become a busy market for the security industry and Tessian.    

Working with leading professional service companies and 50 per cent of the foremost boutique investment banks, asset managers and Am Law 100 firms, Tessian plans to grow its US operations to 30 employees within 12 months. Tessian will also look to further expand its customer base with a focus on targeting the US health care and fintech markets.

Tessian’s machine intelligence will help enterprises in the US market protect themselves from serious security threats such as spear phishing, misaddressed emails, data loss and non-compliance without heavy administrative burden and disruption to employees.

Recently, Tessian was invited by the UK Department for International Trade to take part in a roundtable that brought together a number of the UK’s leading cyber companies to present their technology and software to US Fortune 500 companies. Alongside other successful UK tech companies such as Garrison and iProov, the event helped Tessian to further establish relationships within the US market.

“Having grown exponentially in the UK, we’re excited to be able to replicate this success in the US,” comments Ben Freeman, Head of US at Tessian. “Misaddressed emails are a massive challenge for businesses globally, and the increased threat of inbound phishing attacks mean that all organizations no matter where they are in the world need to protect themselves. America’s bustling economy means it is a great place to start our global expansion and we already have significant traction.”

Tim Sadler, CEO & Co-Founder of Tessian said; “Ben spent over a year in our London headquarters, helping drive Tessian's growth. He's an ideal candidate to lead the opening of our US office. Building a team in such a fast moving region will help us grow our business and brand beyond Europe, and hopefully into other territories.”
