Kape specialises in the online distribution of consumer cyber security and digital maintenance software. The majority of sales relate to the distribution of its proprietary technology, which includes internet VPN services (CyberGhost), PC repair software (ReImage and ReImage for Mac) and PC driver repair software (DriverAgent). It also uses its online consumer acquisition expertise and network to run third-party online media campaigns. The group has headquarters in Camden, London and has approximately 360 employees across its operations in Israel, Cyprus, Romania and Manilla.
In this interview, Kape’s CEO Ido Erlichman discusses the group’s strategy to develop Kape into a leading consumer cyber security brand and discusses the progress the group has made over the last year in expanding the product range as well as transitioning to a SaaS-based model. This progress is already being seen in the 2017 results with strong revenue and EBITDA growth, and 2018 has started very well. In the context of a growing cyber security market, with Kape’s unique user acquisition expertise and strong balance sheet, Ido sees a significant opportunity ahead. He is confident the group will continue to deliver strong growth, and with a growing share of revenues derived from subscriptions he expects to see ongoing improvement in the quality of the earnings base.
