As we approach the conclusion of 2023, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all who have placed their trust in us. This year has marked a significant chapter in the SKUDONET journey, filled with notable achievements that have shaped our organization’s trajectory.
New Leadership and Improved Organisation Structure
In a transformational rebranding this past July, SKUDONET evolved from the former Zevenet to the more focused and resilient SKUDONET. This strategic shift underscores our commitment to the core idea that “cybersecurity is a necessity for the Application Delivery Controller.”
Our internal strength has been reinforced with the addition of two new board members, and Operations and Cybersecurity expertise is now at the heart of the company. The newly appointed Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Antonio Rendon, brings extensive experience in the cyber security market, further solidifying our organisational structure. In addition, the former CTO Emilio Campos Martín, now assumes the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO), leveraging his extensive customer service experience and knowledge of the evolving ADC market.
Unveiling Cybersecurity Innovations: A Glimpse into Product Enhancements
Throughout the year, SKUDONET has witnessed substantial growth in its product offerings, reflecting our commitment to innovation and excellence. With more than 23 minor version releases, 60 hotfixes, and 50 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) addressed.
This year saw the launch of two branches, version 6.2 under the old ZEVENET brand and version 6.3 under the new SKUDONET brand. Of particular note is the introduction of SKUDONET 7, the new Community Edition based on kernel 6 and bookworm, which serves as the basis for the new SKUDONET Enterprise Edition operating system.
In response to the evolving technological landscape, SKUDONET introduced new features focused on improving cybersecurity. Graphs have been added to the system, showcasing attacks blocked and mitigated by our intrusion prevention and detection system. In addition, significant improvements to the HTTP core system, especially the 100-continue HTTP headers, make them more efficiently managed. And finally, The Web Application Firewall (WAF) engine has also seen notable enhancements, with the introduction of new properties allowing for the auditing of HTTP traffic.
A Visionary Future: Making Cybersecurity Accessible to All
At SKUDONET, our work is based on the mission to “make cyber security accessible to all”. As we reflect on the achievements of 2023, we extend our deepest gratitude to our community for their trust and support. Looking ahead, we anticipate an exciting and enthusiastic road ahead in the new year 2024.
Thank you for being an internal part of our journey.
