Action1 expands into Europe, opens data centre in Germany

Action1 Corporation, a provider of the risk-based patch management platform designed for distributed enterprise networks, has announced its expansion into the European market. This move follows a significant year-over-year growth in North America from 2022 to 2023. As a part of its expansion, Action1 established a data centre in Germany, Frankfurt.

In light of the growing challenge for European companies to proactively address vulnerabilities and thwart ransomware threats, Action1’s entrance into the European market is timely. Statista reports that organisations take up to 290 days to patch vulnerabilities, leaving a window of opportunity for cyberattacks. The European Council has identified ransomware as a significant EU cyber threat, with 60% of affected organisations considering ransom payments.

Action1 is set to introduce its modern cloud-native platform to European organisations, enabling them to effectively identify, prioritise, remediate vulnerabilities, and improve their security posture.

The company is establishing a presence in the UK, France, and the DACH region, aiming to be closer to its European clients and their needs. In line with Action1’s commitment to data privacy, the company has established a facility in Frankfurt, Germany, to help ensure that customers handling sensitive data meet the stringent GDPR standards and ensure data residency and sovereignty. European customers will benefit from personalised support, available 24/7 in their time zones.

“We are excited to bring our proven expertise in vulnerability remediation to European organisations and assist them in staying ahead of emerging threats,” says Mike Walters, President and co-founder of Action1. “In the future, we plan to strengthen our presence within the EU market by expanding further, hiring additional personnel, and growing our partner network.”
