NEW YORK, August 17, 2021–Inc.magazine today revealed that Critical Insight is on its annual Inc. 5000 list for the first time. The list is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies and Critical Insight is debuting at number 1,264. The Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We’re honored to be named by Inc. as one of the country’s fastest-growing private companies in the Inc. 5000. All of us at Critical Insight are incredibly proud—our rapid growth means we are defending more organizations from cyberattacks,” said Garrett Silver, CEO of Critical Insight. “Our 381% growth shows that our unique mix of Managed Detection and Response and Professional Services is resonating with small and mid-size organizations, previously priced out of the 24x7 security they need to thrive. Winning an award of this caliber further positions Critical Insight as a market leader.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s companies also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 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 atwww.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue ofInc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
