iovation Makes Inc. 5000 List for Fourth Straight Year

Device Reputation Leader Named One of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Aug 22, 2013) - iovation, stopping Internet fraud and identifying good online customers with the world's most comprehensive device reputation database, today announced that it made the Inc. 5000 list of America's fastest-growing private companies for the fourth consecutive year. The prestigious Inc. 5000 selects and ranks companies based on revenue growth from 2009 to 2012, and iovation grew 78 percent during that time period. The company joined other prominent brands like CDW, LifeLock and LivingSocial to be featured on this year's list.

"Making the Inc. 5000 for our 2012 growth is no coincidence, as we made a number of pivotal enhancements to our products, technology and our team that helped drive explosive growth," said iovation Co-Founder and CEO Greg Pierson. "Finding new ways to leverage our technology and intelligence set to enhance our customers' business operations represents the future for iovation, and you'll continue to see such innovation drive our company's growth."

The company experienced rapid growth in 2012 with strategic partnerships with Experian and ID Analytics, the launch of its Fraud Force Community, and the opening of two additional data centers. This year, iovation has added TrustScore, which identifies website visitors that are most likely to be trustworthy, and enhanced its flagship anti-fraud service, ReputationManager 360, with a number of new features.

Inc. recognized iovation as the 33rd fastest-growing company in the Portland, Oregon metro area and the state of Oregon, and 56th fastest growing in the security industry. To see a complete breakdown of iovation's ranking on the Inc. 5000, go to www.inc.com/inc5000/profile/iovation.

Methodology
The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- as of December 31, 2012. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2009 is $100,000; the minimum for 2012 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons.
