LookingGlass Cyber Solutions Ranked Number 105 Fastest Growing Company in North America on Deloitte’s 2017 Technology Fast 500™
Growth Attributed to Strategic Partnerships, Investments, and Innovative Threat Intelligence Solutions
RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LookingGlass® Cyber Solutions, a leader in threat intelligence-driven security, today announced it ranked #105 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. Of the 500 companies named to the list, LookingGlass ranked #5 in the Washington, D.C. area. The success of LookingGlass’ comprehensive threat protection solutions combined with the development of strategic partnerships are largely responsible for their growth in 2017.
“The Deloitte 2017 North America Technology Fast 500 winners underscore the impact of technological innovation and world class customer service in driving growth, in a fiercely competitive environment,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “These companies are on the cutting edge and are transforming the way we do business. We extend our sincere congratulations to all the winners for achieving remarkable growth while delivering new services and experiences for their customers.”
“LookingGlass is honored to be named to Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 for the second year in a row,” said Chris Coleman, CEO at LookingGlass. “The combination of our advanced technology, investments, and the team’s extraordinary dedication, allows us to provide unmatched visibility into the threat landscape, effectively protecting companies, brands, and employees against cyber attacks.”
Product innovation persisted in 2017 with LookingGlass’ announcement of their Cyber Attack Surface Analysis offering, as well as their Third Party Risk Monitoring service that delivers continuous visibility into the risk exposure and attack surface of an organization’s critical vendors. This service is an entirely outsourced way for companies to analyze a third party vendor’s risk impact on an organization, furthering LookingGlass’ offering of the most comprehensive portfolio of threat intelligence-driven solutions in the marketplace today.
Additionally, in August, the company raised $26.3 million in a mezzanine funding round to accelerate international sales and drive portfolio expansion, to include LookingGlass’ partner program, the Cyber Guardian Network. Over 40 MSSPs and companies, including CenturyLink, Brookcourt Solutions, and Soliton Systems, subscribe to this network to take advantage of the tools LookingGlass provides to differentiate themselves in advanced cybersecurity offerings.
“Emerging growth companies are powering innovation in the broader economy. The growth rates delivered by the companies on this year’s North America Technology Fast 500 ranking are a bright spot for the capital markets and a strong indicator that the emerging growth technology sector will continue to deliver a strong return on investment,” said Heather Gates, national managing director of Deloitte & Touche LLP’s emerging growth company practice. “Deloitte is dedicated to supporting the best and brightest companies of the future in the emerging growth company sector.
