Vigilar Joins the 2007 Inc. 5,000 With Three-Year Sales Growth of 225%

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - August 24, 2007) - Inc. has ranked Vigilar No. 1,592 on its first-ever Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine's annual Inc. 500 list, catches many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.

"The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy -- the entrepreneurial part," said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. "The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries like Manufacturing and Construction that are underreported in the business media."

Vigilar is a leading provider of information security solutions and services, serving customers in the South and Southeast. "Our customers are in an arms race to manage an ever-growing set of IT security technologies put in place to manage the rapidly changing threat landscape," said James Fox, CEO of Vigilar. "We are seeing strong demand for our products and service, particularly our ATLAS security-as-a-service offering, which helps customers manage their existing IT security infrastructure and applications."
