ntop is a small, engineering-driven company, debt-free with low fixed costs, with many customers (most of which are individuals and small companies, but some key players in networking embed our software in their products), profitable in business for more than 10 years. This means that we’re potentially immune to take-overs, market decline and bankruptcy if the key customer disappears (simply because we’re lucky enough not to have a key customer). We develop high-quality networking software used by small individuals as well by large telecom operators, mostly open-source, free for no-profit/research, and provide direct support at reasonable prices. We operate our computers using the green energy (photovoltaics) we produce, our staff is geographically distributed in Europe and North America, we mostly work from our SOHO going to the office only when necessary, this as we see a value in working close to our families and serving remote customers at night when all offices would be closed. All our software and technology is home-grown and thus independent from third-party companies, our prices are transparent and stable over time, we have full control on what we produce. Our aim is to continue operating ntop with these principles for the years to come, and not to become a sales-driven company where profit is (mostly) the only driving force, while steady growing in both revenues and staff like we have done for the past years. We like and believe in what we do, and how we do it. We expect to be here for the years to come, when you will need us.
