2018: One Year Closer to a Secure Future

Rebecca YarbroughJanuary 3rd, 2019

One year down, another year closer to a secure future. 

Here are some highlights from 2018 with you and the Virgil Security community:

  • The team launched a lot of new things!
    • V5 of the Virgil API
    • a simplified end-to-end encryption SDK called e3kit (in beta for Firebase users, soon to launch widely)
    • passw0rd.io
    • a new user dashboard, and more
  • The 1000th developer created a Virgil account
  • 300 of you joined our Slack channel
  • The Virgil World Tour took us around the world to TechCrunch Disrupt, AltConf, DEFCON, DevWeek, Webit, and Highload
  • GDPR went into effect…
  • Lots of people were interested in our review of Telegram’s Passport vulnerabilities
  • Many of you took our developer survey that gave us interesting insights which we’ll share soon
  • Partnerships with Firebase, Twilio, Nexmo, PubNub and Back4App expanded

We look forward to seeing what 2019 holds. Expect a torrent of product improvements (Requests? Ping us on Slack), more onboarding videos and tutorials than you’ll know what to do with, and a hyper-engaged customer support team. 

Our mission is to empower developers to secure their products. We’re grateful for you, your support of that mission and your help as we #SecureTheFuture together. Cheers to a great 2019!
