Fast Growth Requires Even Faster Security

Things move fast, especially in cybersecurity — where fewer factors are more important than “time” when it comes to an organization’s ability to detect and stop a cyberattack. Time, and having the right systems and strategies in place that support speedy detection and response of an attack. Fortunately, in a time when cyberattacks are at an all-time high, we’re able to work with the smartest cybersecurity customers in the world.

These organizations know that the only way to detect and stop attacks in the moment is by making artificial intelligence an integral part of their cybersecurity strategy. And not in the sense that AI is simply another box to check for security teams, but rather by applying it to actively stop breaches and threats that make it into their environments.

Our customers move fast, however the increasingly dangerous and demanding security landscape can create major obstacles. Today’s challenges of ransomware, cloud adoption and now securing a remote workforce have substantially raised the level of difficulty for security teams. This is why we continue to see our customers accelerate the adoption of AI-driven threat detection and response as a way automate threat detection throughout the enterprise and uncover and stop hidden threats that regularly bypass prevention.

We know we’re just a small piece of our customers’ journey, but if we can help make sure they’re able to securely move where they need — we’ve done our job. Everything we do at Vectra is with our customers in mind, so anytime we receive industry recognition of any type, our customers are the first thought that comes to mind, which happens to be the case today. Vectra couldn’t be more thrilled to be recognized as a Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ award winner. And no one deserves more credit than our customers — thank you for your continued support!

About the Deloitte Technology Fast 500

Now in its 27th year, the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 provides a ranking of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies — both public and private — in North America. Technology Fast 500 award winners are selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2017 to 2020.

“Each year the Technology Fast 500 shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “In the face of innumerable challenges resulting from the pandemic, the best and brightest were able to pivot, reinvent and transform and grow. We celebrate the winning organizations and especially the talented employees driving their success.”

In order to be eligible for Technology Fast 500 recognition, companies must own proprietary intellectual property or technology that is sold to customers in products that contribute to a majority of the company’s operating revenues. Companies must have base-year operating revenues of at least US$50,000, and current-year operating revenues of at least US$5 million. Additionally, companies must be in business for a minimum of four years and be headquartered within North America.

“The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for tech solutions in a variety of areas across health care, fintech, energy tech, entertainment, to name a few, so reliance on innovators like the winners of the Technology Fast 500 is more important than ever,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications within Deloitte’s audit & assurance practice. “These companies are not only at the cutting edge, transforming the way we do business, but most importantly, recognize the strategic importance of ongoing innovation, especially in the ever-changing world of technology.”
