NEW YORK, August 20, 2008 - Inc. today ranked Accuvant No. 831 on its annual ranking of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the country. The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.
"Our second annual Inc. 5000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism," said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. "The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth."
Accuvant is the nation's premier national information security and compliance management consulting firm. Accuvant was founded in 2002 by a group of security veterans who saw the need for comprehensive solutions in an industry that had become too specialized and fragmented. The founders' vision was to create a company that would bridge the gap between vendors and end users by combining best-of-class technology with expert consulting services.
"We are proud to be recognized in the 2008 Inc. 5000," commented Accuvant Vice President of Operations Scott Walker. "The information security industry continues to grow at a sharp pace and Accuvant remains a leader by hiring and retaining the best talent to meet the diverse needs of our clients."
The 2008 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2004 through 2007. To qualify, companies must be U.S.-based and privately held, independent - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies - as of December 31, 2007, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2004, and $2 million in 2007. During this period, Accuvant grew at a rate of 429%.
