For the second consecutive year, PhishMe has been included in the Washington Business Journal list of the 50 Fastest Growing Companies in the United States, improving its rating from #21 last year to #11 in 2017.
The Washington Business Journal list of the 50 Fastest Growing Companies was announced on October 19 in McLean, VA. To compile the list, WBJ assessed average percentage revenue growth over the past three years. To be considered for inclusion in the list, companies must have been generating more than $2 million in annual revenue in 2014, and annual revenues must have increased to at least $10 million in 2016. Companies must also have experienced continued year on year growth.
In addition to an impressive rise in the rankings, PhishMe was also one of the top five companies for employee growth, having increased its employees by 288% over the past three years.
“Making the WBJ list of 50 Fastest Growing Companies for the second consecutive year is a huge honor and testament to the great team we’ve built here at PhishMe, “said Aaron Higbee, CTO and Co-Founder, PhishMe. Unfortunately, part of the reason for the impressive growth is the massive rise in phishing attacks over the past three years. That has created tremendous demand for effective phishing solutions – both technological and human-based phishing defences, such as those provided by PhishMe.
Higbee said, “The unfortunate reality is that no organization is immune to cyberattacks, and we’re committed to helping businesses of all sizes condition their employees to be prepared and better respond to phishing threats in their tracks.”
PhishMe’s solution is an intelligence-driven platform that organizations can use to train and condition their employees to become an integral part of their cybersecurity defenses. An extensive library of training materials is provided by PhishMe to help organizations develop highly effective security awareness training programs.
The effectiveness of those training programs can be tested using PhishMe Simulator, a phishing simulation platform that can be used to check resilience to real-world phishing attacks in a safe environment. PhishMe Reporter allows employees to report potential phishing emails with a single click, allowing security teams to quickly act to mitigate new threats.
The PhishMe platform has proved incredibly popular and is now used by almost 50% of Fortune 100 companies. The platform has been adopted by more than 1,600 businesses in over 50 countries around the world.
