PhishMe, Inc. Recognized by Washington Business Journal as One of Washington D.C.’s Fastest Growing Companies

LEESBURG, VA – October 28, 2016 PhishMe, Inc. a global provider of phishing defense and intelligence solutions for the enterprise, announced today that the Washington Business Journal has ranked the company as #21 of Washington’s 50 fastest growing private companies of 2016. PhishMe’s team was honored at a public award ceremony on Thursday, October 27, where their ranking on the list was announced. Additionally, the list has been published on the Washington Business Journal’s site.

This highly competitive list is comprised of companies that have recorded consecutive year-over-year growth of more than $2 million in revenue in 2013 and more than $10 million in revenue in 2015. The firms are privately held during the reporting period and must be headquartered in the Washington D.C. area. They cannot be subsidiaries of other companies. The Washington Business Journal then calculates the revenue growth percentages by which the companies are ranked. Only the top 50 make the list.

“Making the Washington Business Journal’s list of the fastest growing companies is a great honor and an indication of all the hard work our team has been doing,” said Rohyt Belani, Co-Founder and CEO of PhishMe. “As cybersecurity continues to be at the forefront of businesses in this digital age, our strong business fundamentals and ability to adapt to the market has afforded us the platform for strong growth.”

PhishMe has recently achieved record cumulative growth of more than 560 percent over the last three years. In addition, the company has helped more than half of the Fortune 100 organizations defend themselves against thousands of phishing attacks perpetrated by cybercriminals across the globe, helping PhishMe attain a 93 percent gross retention and negative net churn. This has resulted in PhishMe also being recognized as a leader in the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training.

The company’s growth has landed PhishMe on multiple lists of the nation’s fastest growing companies, including Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 and the Inc. 500/5000 Awards.
