Deloitte's 2015 Technology Fast 500 Recognizes Damballa as One of the Fastest Growing Companies in North America

Company attributes growth to increased need for real-time network security monitoring

ATLANTA--()--Damballa, the experts in network security monitoring, announced it has been selected as one of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a list of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. This is Damballa’s second consecutive year as a Technology Fast 500 winner.

“Today's enterprises know how quickly a network intrusion can escalate into a breach. Traditional diagnostics are not enough to keep advanced attackers out. Damballa helps businesses at the point where they are at most risk; when systems are compromised and communicating with criminal operators. We continuously expose threat-related activity and initiate remediation options. We’ve never seen one of our customers in the breach headlines, and that’s a point of pride,” said Damballa CEO David Scholtz.

“Amid a fierce business climate, there seems to be no shortage of new and established companies that are unlocking a seemingly unlimited potential for growth and advancement through technology’s continued disruption and proliferation across industries,” said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “It is inspiring to witness the innovative ways that companies are incorporating emerging technologies for business gains, be it cognitive computing, or the Internet of Things. We congratulate all those ranked on this year’s Fast 500 and look forward to seeing their continued growth into 2016.”

“Through the efforts and utilization of new and emerging technologies from these companies, we are witnessing greater business demands from across almost all industries,” added Jim Atwell, national managing partner of the emerging company practice, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “We look forward to the opportunity to serve these companies as they strive to grow to the next level – be it towards introducing new solutions or entering new markets – and with it make important and long lasting impressions on the technology market as a whole.”

Damballa's enterprise product Failsafe constantly monitors the network for threat-related activity because malicious behavior happens over time, not in an instance. Failsafe determines the level of risk each compromised device poses and gives organizations options for remediation to prevent a breach.
