2017 has been a fast-paced and exciting year. We had a multitude of product releases and updates including our latest version of Iris Investigate with Passive DNS. In addition, we announced integrations with ThreatConnect, IBM QRadar, MISP, and Splunk. Finally, our company grew by 15%, and our coffee consumption surely grew by at least 25%.
