NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NS1, the leader in application traffic intelligence and automation, today announced that it is listed on Deloitte’s 2021 Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 27th year.
Kris Beevers, NS1 co-founder and CEO, attributes the company’s 266% growth, measured from 2017 to 2020, to the rise in demand for software-defined networking solutions that deliver flexibility, performance, and resilience for applications at the distributed edge.
“Modern, distributed enterprises need solutions that enable them to securely, reliably, and intelligently connect their applications, customers, employees, and devices everywhere — from the edge to the cloud,” said Beevers. “During the pandemic, these digital connections only increased in importance, and NS1 has been able to aggressively innovate, bringing to market solutions that keep businesses online and resilient.”
The announcement comes just after NS1 announced it closed 28 consecutive quarters of annual recurring revenue growth. The company now serves more than 800 customers worldwide, including many of the world’s most well-known brands, such as Uber, LinkedIn, Salesforce, eBay, JetBlue, Walmart, USAA, and Fox.
“Each year the Technology Fast 500 shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “In the face of innumerable challenges resulting from the pandemic, the best and brightest were able to pivot, reinvent and transform and grow. We celebrate the winning organizations and especially the talented employees driving their success.”
“The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for tech solutions in a variety of areas across healthcare, fintech, energy tech, entertainment, to name a few, so reliance on innovators like the winners of the Technology Fast 500 is more important than ever,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications within Deloitte’s audit & assurance practice. “These companies are not only at the cutting edge, transforming the way we do business, but most importantly, recognize the strategic importance of ongoing innovation, especially in the ever-changing world of technology.”
Overall, 2021 Technology Fast 500TM companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 212% to 87,037% from 2017 to 2020, with median growth of 521%.
