July 27, 2020 - 12:00

AUSTIN, Texas, July 27, 2020 - GFI Software was named one of the top-100 software companies for 2020 by The Software Report, joining ranks that include Salesforce, Dropbox, Zoom, Asana and Tealium.

A key contributing factor in the GFI nomination was the extended 90-day trial for its secure VPN product-Kerio Control. Starting in March 2020, when most of Europe was in lock-down due to COVID-19, GFI increased the length of its Kerio Control Firewall and VPN product trial. Companies suddenly faced with work-at-home employees could deploy a secure VPN for free during the crisis.

Reflecting the global reach of the pandemic’s effects and impact on SMBs, 1,700 companies from over 100 countries downloaded the offer.

"GFI has continued to perform during this challenging time,” said Dan Beer, CEO of GFI Software. “Our software delivers business-IT essentials like security and collaboration at a price point made for small and medium businesses. The extended Kerio Control trial underscores our commitment to the SMBs we work with."

The Top 100 Software Companies of 2020 provide some of the most important and impactful software solutions for businesses across the globe. They span a wide array of functionality from data analytics and business intelligence to workflow tools, sales enablement, and security, to name a few.

This year’s awardees by The Software Report were selected based on nominations from industry professionals as well as company customers. Each nominated company was further evaluated across a number of categories including product strength, management team caliber, organizational composition and company growth, among others.
