SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Black Lotus, a leader in availability security and provider of distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection, today announced the company’s inclusion on the San Francisco Business Times’ annual list of 100 Fastest-Growing Companies in the Bay Area. The cybersecurity company reported 295.8 percent growth from 2011 to 2013, putting it at a final rank of number 30 in the overall list. As DDoS attacks continue to grow in frequency, Black Lotus’ growth is evidence of the increased industrywide recognition of the need for proactive implementation of effective cybersecurity measures.
Since its creation in 1999, Black Lotus has been on a steady upward trajectory due to its consistent growth across both end-users and channel partners, as well as its growth in investment. Black Lotus also launched new scrubbing centers during the past year in Ashburn, Virginia and Amsterdam, both of which are capable of withstanding DDoS attacks of up to 1,000 Gbps. Lastly, the company has continued to build out its reach and audience through strategic partnerships in the data center market. Each of these initiatives demonstrates Black Lotus’ ongoing commitment to enhancing its DDoS protection technology and bringing its security-as-a-service solution to a wider market.
“Our inclusion on this list is the result of long-term planning and a clear understanding of what the international enterprise market needs from its cybersecurity providers,” said Arman Khalili, chief executive officer of Black Lotus. “We learned to make the hard decisions and take the right risks by building a multi-faceted team of staffers with diverse backgrounds, who are all more than capable of driving this company toward our end goal. By prioritizing these factors, we’ve been able to scale our company at a rapid rate and bring our vision of a safe and open Internet community to a global audience.”
