VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PHEMI, the company delivering privacy, security, governance and enterprise-grade management for big data, today announced it has received a 2015 Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ Award in the “Companies-to-Watch” category. Launched over 15 years ago, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ celebrates leadership, innovation and excellence in the Canadian technology sector.
The Companies-to-Watch Award honors early-stage Canadian technology companies in business for less than four years. The winners are selected based on the potential they show for future growth, and for exemplifying many characteristics of Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ ranked companies. Qualifying companies must have headquarters in Canada, own proprietary technology, and conduct research and development activities in Canada.
“Today, companies aiming to use data to drive their business forward are facing complicated privacy and security challenges that are limiting their ability to leverage data to maximum benefit,” said Paul Terry, CEO, PHEMI. “We are honored to be recognized with a Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ award, and believe our unique approach for the big data market will continue to drive our growth and success by helping government and enterprises gain real value from their data with assured privacy protection and data governance already built into our solution.”
PHEMI’s approach to privacy, security and governance helps organizations in healthcare, life sciences, finance, the public sector and other industries protect private and sensitive data, enforce data-sharing agreements, and meet industry compliance requirements. PHEMI combines the scale and performance of big data with enterprise-grade data governance and management to help companies unlock their data silos to improve performance and drive innovation.
“Companies-to-watch winners deserve recognition for their entrepreneurial spirit and early stage growth,” said Robert Nardi, Technology, Media and Telecommunications Managing Partner for Deloitte Canada. “These companies are poised for continued growth and often go to rank in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ once they establish a four-year track record.”
