More and more organizations today are realizing their exposure and are turning to the experts to help them reduce their risks and secure their most valuable assets. This is where we anticipate significant growth over the coming years.
Sterling, VA (PRWEB) August 28, 2009
The September issue of Inc. Magazine released its highly anticipated annual list featuring the top 5,000 fastest growing, privately owned companies in the country, and Intekras, Inc., a progressive and emerging IT Security company, broke through in the top half of this prestigious list in its first year of eligibility. The Inc. 5000 list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over a four year period, and it offers the most comprehensive look at the entrepreneurial engine driving the U.S. economy.
"Given that there are estimated to be around 27 million small businesses in the United States at this time, this is a very significant honor and milestone for our company and all of its employees. Rapidly growing an IT firm in the midst of one of the worst economies since the Great Depression is a testament to our determination, resolve and will to win," said Darrell Green, Chairman and Co-Founder.
Intekras's growth can be attributed in part to the explosion in the IT security or cyber-security industry. Today's headlines are replete with stories of government networks being hacked into, identities being stolen and financial institutions losing millions through sophisticated hi-tech thieves. Both government agencies and commercial entities are required to take extensive risk management measures or risk the loss of sensitive information that can compromise national security or cost companies millions.
The company has recently made a significant investment to attract some of the industry's top talent as well as establishing a state-of-the-art digital forensics lab and putting into use best-of-class scanning and penetration testing tools -- enabling the company to deliver a wide array of information and cyber-security services.
"Protecting valuable information assets, ensuring the integrity of your data and reducing the risk of costly mistakes that make you vulnerable in today's information-driven world are challenges we all face," said Charles Williams, President and CEO. "More and more organizations today are realizing their exposure and are turning to the experts to help them reduce their risks and secure their most valuable assets. This is where we anticipate significant growth over the coming years."
