BigFix Is Number Three on Deloitte & Touche's Prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for Silicon Valley

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - October 31, 2007) - BigFix, Inc., a global leader in real-time IT security and management solutions for the distributed enterprise, today announced it is the third-fastest growing technology company in Deloitte & Touche's prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for Silicon Valley, Software & Information Technology category. The Technology Fast 50 is a ranking of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, and life sciences companies in the San Francisco Bay Area. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2002-2006.

BigFix's increase in revenues of 3,863 percent from 2002 to 2006 ranks third in the Software & Information Technology category of the Technology Fast 50 for Silicon Valley. The average increase in revenues among companies that made the Technology Fast 50 for this region was 1,455 percent.

"We're pleased but not surprised that BigFix ranked in the top three companies in Deloitte's Technology Top 50," said Dave Robbins, president and CEO for BigFix. "Breakthrough technology combined with customer satisfaction is the best recipe for significant growth. BigFix's success is built on solving the highest priority IT problems at global scale in real time. We're confident we will continue to grow by earning the trust of the most demanding IT organizations worldwide."

"Deloitte's Silicon Valley Technology Fast 50 companies have shown the strength, vision, and tenacity to succeed in today's formidable technology environment," said Mark Jensen, partner and national director, Venture Capital Services, Deloitte & Touche LLP. "We congratulate BigFix on its success in the IT security market and acknowledge it as one of the impressive few companies to achieve such a fast growth rate over the years."

BigFix delivers real-time security configuration and vulnerability management solutions that enable organizations to continuously improve IT processes and security while ensuring greater visibility across global networks.

To qualify for the Silicon Valley Technology Fast 50 award, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2002 and $5,000,000 in 2006, and be headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area. A company must also own proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues, or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology or intellectual property in a unique way does not qualify.

Companies from the 16 regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America's top 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies.
