Optiv Security Named One of North America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies by Inc. Magazine



Largest Cyber Security Organization Ranked on the List


Denver – September 1, 2016 – Optiv Security, a market-leading provider of end-to-end cyber security solutions, today announced that it has been named to this year’s Inc. 5000, a ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies in North America. Optiv is number 3,375 on the list, with a three-year growth rate of 97 percent. Optiv is the largest cyber security company on the list with nearly $1.9 billion in gross revenue in 2015.


“Cyber security remains top priority for senior executives and boards of directors for organizations of all sizes and across all industries,” said Optiv chief executive officer Dan Burns. “Our company’s continued growth and inclusion on this respected listing underscores the value we deliver to our clients through our extensive vendor partner ecosystem, proven services and solutions, and experienced cyber security experts. We are proud of our work, proud of our positive impact, and proud to receive this recognition.”


"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” said Inc. president and editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”



The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2012. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2015. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2012 is $100,000; the minimum for 2015 is $2 million.
