|Q1 Labs' extensive customer base has contributed to its outstanding revenue increase|
, the global provider of total security intelligence solutions, announced that its revenue has continued to increase at a rapid rate, achieving 98 percent growth in Q3 2010 over Q3 2009. Contributing to this outstanding revenue increase is the company's extensive customer base: Q1 Labs now has more than 1400 customers worldwide, and is continuing to drive the worldwide adoption of SIEM solutions and Security Intelligence technology.

said CEO Shaun McConnon. "The demand for security software is growing. Q1 Labs is taking market share by delivering the right solutions through the right channels to an increasingly large number of customers worldwide, as our product, QRadar, has become a necessity for all corporations and government agencies."
