"Idera delivered significant growth in revenue, employees, and new customers over the past year," said York Richards, Idera's CFO.

  • An all new product, SQL Elements, that provides a summary view of the entire SQL Server environment through a single dashboard. Over 400 beta users tested the product to ensure quality and customer value prior to the December release.
  • Significant feature enhancements to Server Backup Manager, SQL Toolbox, SQL Admin Toolset and SQL Comparison Toolset

Idera's existing products also earned several prestigious awards:

  • SQL Compliance Manager won the SQL Server Pro Community Choice Award for Best Security, Auditing & Compliance solutions for the fourth year in a row.
  • Idera's SQL Toolbox solution won Best of TechEd Award in the Database category for the fourth time.

In addition, Idera expanded its commitment to the IT community by launching three new free tools, including SQL Integrity Check, Server Backup Free, and SQL Permissions Extractor.

Idera gained more than 1,000 new customers, achieving its goal of over 13,000 enterprises relying on Idera's application management solutions. To support the expanded business, Idera increased marketing, R&D, and sales staff by 30% and now operates offices in five countries worldwide.

Idera has expanded its product offering and value proposition in 2013 by acquiring two companies: CopperEgg, a provider of cloud monitoring for applications, websites and servers, and Precise Software, a solution family of end-to-end application performance management software.

"2013 was exceptional for Idera," said Randy Jacops, CEO of Idera.
