Information Security Company Climbs Nearly 300 Positions in 2012 Ranking

Denver –Sept. 25, 2012 – Accuvant, the only research-driven information security partner delivering alignment, clarity and confidence to enterprise and federal clients, today announced that it has been named to the Inc. 500|5000 for the sixth year in a row. 

The company’s No. 1,929 ranking, which is nearly 300 positions higher than last year, is based on three-year revenue growth of 141 percent – a 27 percent increase from 2011.

“Nearly 85 percent of our business comes from repeat clients, which is a testament to the quality of the information security expertise, guidance, and solutions we deliver to public and private organizations alike,” said Dan Burns, Accuvant co-founder and chief executive officer. “The hard work of our hundreds of experienced security professionals day in and day out has enabled us to earn the trust of some of the most recognized and highly-regarded organizations in the world, and resulted in impressive and sustained growth. We are extremely proud of what we have achieved during our first 10 years in business.”

“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 growth companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” said Inc. editor Eric Schurenberg.
