Accuvant Recognized As One Of America's Fastest Growing Private Companies

New York, New York - August 23, 2007 – Inc. magazine today ranked Accuvant on its 26th annual Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. Coming in at #220, Accuvant experienced an extraordinary growth rate of 1,018% between 2003 and 2006.

“If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500,” said Inc. Editor Jane Berentson. “These are the most innovative, dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones coming up with solutions to some of our most intractable ills, creating systems that let us conduct business faster and easier, and manufacturing solutions and providing services we soon discover we can’t live without. The Inc. 500 List is the Inc. magazine’s tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition.”

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.

According to Dan Wilson, Accuvant’s VP of Consulting and Co-Founder, the equation for success is simple. “The company has boldly executed an aggressive plan to become the dominant provider of security solutions to large enterprises. Our success towards that goal has been remarkable, and it is thanks to the hard work, talent, and energy of all Accuvant employees.”

Since its inception, Accuvant has become one of the largest and most respected security solution providers as validated by the 2007 Inc. 500 recognition. Accuvant has helped more than 1,000 customers to date—including 25% of the Fortune 1000—address their information security challenges by helping them develop comprehensive security strategies.

Methodology: The 2007 Inc. 500 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006.
