DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Accuvant, the authoritative source for enterprise information security, today announced that it has been named to the Inc. 500|5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies for the eighth consecutive year. Accuvant is the only information security company to be included at least eight times in the list’s 33-year history, and one of only 140 companies overall.
In 2013, Accuvant achieved gross revenue of $577 million and realized an average compound growth rate of 36 percent per year over the last five years.
“Accuvant’s fierce commitment to meeting our clients’ unique needs with quality information security solutions and services is one of the many reasons for our exceptional growth and success year after year,” said Dan Burns, Accuvant co-founder and chief executive officer. “It’s always an honor to be recognized for our achievements. But being the only information security company to make the Inc. 500|5000 eight times validates our experience, expertise and innovative approach to solving the world’s toughest security challenges.”
Accuvant’s offerings help its clients plan, build and run successful security programs. By serving as a trusted advisor, the company allows organizations to better understand their threats, needs and options; and as a strategic supplier, enables clients to successfully execute on plans and strategies to protect themselves.
“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. president and editor-in-chief, Eric Schurenberg. “But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
The 2014 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent--not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies--as of December 31, 2013. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 is $2 million.
