Centrify Named to Inc. Magazine’s 36th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies for the Fourth Consecutive Year

August 22, 2017

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, today announced that Inc. magazine has included the company in its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“It’s an honor to be ranked among the most prestigious private companies for the fourth year in a row,” said Tom Kemp, CEO and co-founder of Centrify. “This is another proof point of our unique approach to the market and our commitment to creating a complete platform that stop breaches in their tracks. We are focused on long-term growth and customer needs, and we will continue to focus on priorities that are in our customers’ best interests.”

At a time when cyber breaches are rising in volume and velocity, and, according to Verizon, 80 percent of those breaches are due to compromised credentials, Centrify represents a massive rethink of security with the only complete platform that stops breaches through the trifecta of Identity Services for applications, endpoints and infrastructure—both on premises and in the cloud.

The 2017 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.

Methodology

The 2017 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2013 to 2016. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2013. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2016. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2013 is $100,000; the minimum for 2016 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.'s September issue.
