Looking Back on Edgescan in 2020

Looking Back on Edgescan in 2020

January 19, 2021 / general / Comments (0)

As we take a quick look back on 2020,  we hope 2021 brings you all the success in the world. While 2020 didn’t go as expected, at Edgescan we will take the positives out of what has been, for many reasons, a tough year.  The year started on a high as we celebrated our 6th Birthday, released our annual Vulnerability Report and attended RSA and other live conferences before Covid-19 hit.  The initial impact was for our whole company to seamlessly go fully remote and we have been successfully operating in this way since.

Rounding up 2020, while it was challenging and an extremely tough year, we believe we’ve come out with new ways of interactions, from daily virtual meetings to team ‘Quarantini’ cocktail nights to webinars. We found a new way to learn, grow, develop and succeed. With that said, we hope as much as 2020 challenged us it has made us stronger and we will rise to whatever challenge 2021 has for  #TeamEdgescan!
