Ghostery, Inc. Ranked Number 159 Fastest Growing Company in North America on Deloitte's 2015 Technology Fast 500™

Attributes 532 Percent Revenue Growth to Consumers' and Businesses' Demand for a Better Digital Experience

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 16, 2015) - Ghostery, a leading technology company that empowers consumers and businesses globally to create safer, faster, and more trusted digital experiences, today announced it ranked No. 159 on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. Ghostery grew 532 percent during this period.

Ghostery's chief executive officer and co-founder, Scott Meyer, credits the company's triple-digit revenue growth to an increased demand for solutions to the ever-growing complexity of the technology marketers rely on to drive ROI. While these solutions can deliver great benefit, most businesses are faced with managing a "Frankenstack" of vendors, as coined by Scott Brinker of ChiefMartec.com, that can erode the consumer digital experience they are meant to enhance. He said, "It is a great privilege to be recognized by Deloitte for our market success and Ghostery's efforts to fill the needs of both consumers and businesses to control their data and optimize the digital experience."

"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."

Over the past year, Ghostery has reaped significant accolades and recognition as a company on the fast-track to success. In August, Ghostery was named to the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in America and announced strategic partnerships with both Oracle and IBM. In addition, the company has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CIO and Fox Business Channel.

Overall, 2015 Technology Fast 500™ companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 109 percent to 21,984 percent from 2011 to 2014, with an average growth of 850 percent.
