- Customer Community Growth – Exostar’s A&D, life sciences, and healthcare communities continued to grow.

Exostar also introduced a vendor qualification management solution and a mobile-based multifactor authentication solution, while expanding its secure supply chain management suite to deliver digitalization across the multi-tier supplier network.
“Digital business models offer great promise and potential, and they are fundamentally changing the way organizations operate internally, with their partners, and with their customers,” said Richard Addi, Exostar’s President and CEO. “While its advantages are clear and compelling, digitalization also puts a premium on performance, collaboration, and security. Our solutions address these requirements head-on, which drove our success in 2017 and fuels our optimism for even better results in 2018 and beyond.”
