Invincea Ranked 118th Fastest Growing Company in North America on Deloitte's 2015 Technology Fast 500™

Invincea's Accelerating Momentum Fueled by Demonstrated Proof of Value at Global Enterprises and Government Agencies

FAIRFAX, VA--(Marketwired - November 16, 2015) - Invincea, the leader in advanced endpoint threat protection, today announced the company ranks 118th 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. It was honored as the 54th fastest growing software company in North America, with compound annual growth of 756 percent from 2011 to 2014.

This prestigious recognition by Deloitte follows months of strategic milestones for Invincea, including the company's entrance into the endpoint detection and response (EDR) market and the award of a perfect 5-star rating for Invincea Advanced Endpoint Protection in SC Magazine's 2015 Endpoint Security Group Test.

"Our team is honored to join Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 in the company of other high-growth innovators," said Invincea Founder and CEO Anup Ghosh. "Invincea's remarkable growth over the last three years underscores the market's desire for a fundamentally new approach to protecting networks from cyber threats and demonstrates the unparalleled value we are delivering to enterprises worldwide. By stopping the most advanced threats facing industry and government, Invincea is helping organizations turn the tide against relentless adversaries."

Significant recent Invincea milestones include:

  • The attainment of major new customer accounts and expansions in US federal, financial services, energy, life sciences, and professional services firms.
  • The licensing of Invincea's Cynomix machine learning malware detection technology by a major research institution, on behalf of a US federal agency. This institution and federal agency will use Cynomix's leading-edge machine learning algorithms to detect unknown malware targeting US critical infrastructure organizations.
  • 100 percent renewal rate of enterprise customers in the third quarter.
  • More than 4,000 confirmed "kills" of advanced endpoint attacks in Q3, reflecting 80 percent quarter-on-quarter growth of attacks observed and defeated by Invincea. Invincea is consistently defeating the advanced threats -- such as weaponized Office documents, ransomware, and spear-phishing -- that evade anti-virus, network monitoring/sandbox, next-generation firewall, and other technologies.
  • Identification of major global threats, including the resurrection of Dridex, a notorious banking Trojan using weaponized Microsoft Office documents, and an advanced malvertising attack launching rootkit malware via a top 10 German website.
  • The expansion of Invincea's partnership with Cisco, to deliver automated threat intelligence across the enterprise.
  • Selection as a finalist in DC Inno's 50 on Fire and Tech in Motion's Timmy Awards.

Complementing the company's award-winning technology, Invincea researchers published acclaimed research on the trending advanced threats of the first half of 2015. Advisories addressed destructive malvertising attacks causing more than $1 billion in annual damages and the rise of "just-in-time" (JIT) malware assembly, where cyber-criminals build malicious code directly on victims' machines in order to bypass network sandboxes and other defenses. These threats and many others are defeated by Invincea's integrated containerization, behavioral threat detection, and machine learning-based malware detection technology.
