Cyber Risk Management Pioneer Achieves 235% Growth Rate
Sunnyvale, Calif. & Albuquerque, N.M. – November 18, 2016 – RiskSense® Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced it was ranked for the first time on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list of fastest growing companies in North America. The annual ranking spans the technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech sectors.
RiskSense, which has pioneered the category of cyber risk management, achieved a 235% growth rate from 2012 to 2015. Overall, 2016 Technology Fast 500™ companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 121 percent to 66,661 percent from 2012 to 2015, with median growth of 290 percent. The company ranked 178th in the software technology category and 319th overall on the list.
“Being ranked on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 this year demonstrates how rapidly RiskSense is growing and the high rate of customer adoption we are achieving,” said Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala, co-founder and chief executive officer of RiskSense. “Businesses and government agencies are literally drowning in cyber security data. The RiskSense Platform enables them to identify and remediate vulnerabilities buried in siloed systems, while improving operational and cost efficiencies.”
“Today, when every organization can be a tech company, the most effective businesses not only foster the courage to explore change, but also encourage creativity in using and applying existing assets in new ways, as resourcefully as possible,” said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media, and telecommunications industry leader. “This ingenious approach to innovation calls for the encouragement of curiosity and collaboration both within and outside the office walls.”
“This year’s Fast 500 winners showcase that when organizations are open to diverse perspectives and insights, they are able to create an environment for their employees and customers to see the possibilities and ingenious solutions that might lie ahead,” added Jim Atwell, national managing partner of the emerging growth company practice, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “Entrepreneurial environments foster change and innovation within businesses, and we look forward to watching these companies continue to drive change across all sectors.”
RiskSense is changing the way organizations detect and manage cyber risk, reducing time from detection to remediation from months to minutes by unifying and contextualizing internal security intelligence, external threat data, and business criticality. The RiskSense Platform is the first cyber risk management solution with an intelligence-driven approach that enables organizations to pro-actively discover and address security gaps that pose the most severe risks to their operations. RiskSense extracts actionable intelligence from the massive volume of data generated by a patchwork of cyber security products, including vulnerability scanners, threat intelligence feeds, and other complex security systems. This allows enterprises and governments to quickly understand their particular cyber risk exposure across a growing attack surface, quickly orchestrate remediation, and monitor the results. Rather than adding even more security tools, organizations have with RiskSense a new, significantly more efficient and effective approach to enterprise security.
