Secure Designs Inc., (, a managed information technology security solutions company, has been named one of the Triad’s 50 fastest-growing, privately held companies. This is Secure Designs’ second consecutive appearance in the list, recognizing the firm’s strong growth and close to 200% ramp in revenues over the past three years.

The Triad Business Journal on September 27 unveiled its annual Fast 50 ranking of the 12 county Triad area's 2012 Fast 50 companies. The award, hosted in concert with presenting sponsors Smith Leonard, Wells Fargo, North State Communications and co-sponsors, Hill Chesson & Woody and Robert Half was presented at an event held at the Embassy Suites, Winston Salem.

Secure Designs continues to record remarkable traction providing a growing portfolio of managed security products and services to companies throughout the US, specializing in delivering advanced, easily managed and affordable solutions to the small to mid-size business (SMB) segment. The company manages thousands of firewalls in 35 US states and five countries internationally, and continually introduces new technologies to enhance its offerings.

“We are excited to be numbered among the Fast 50 once more,” said Larry Cecchini, president and CEO at Secure Designs. “Our entire company is focused on continually innovating to provide smaller businesses with world class IT security in a simple and affordable way, allowing them the peace of mind to stay productive and grow. Our goal is to remain a member of this elite group going forward, and continue to move up in the top 50 rankings every year.”

The company’s ongoing growth trajectory has been recognized by a number of influential industry organizations in recent years. Secure Designs was ranked among the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 in recognition of their three-year sales ramp and was also named to CRN Magazine’s Fast Growth 100 for 2012. A SonicWALL Gold Medallion partner, Secure Designs is also a leader in the development of breakthrough Master Managed Security Services Provider initiatives to other technology providers.

Cecchini attributes SDI’s ongoing growth to four key business strategies: value-focused innovation within existing and new partnerships; continual expansion and improvement of services; a laser focus on growth opportunities where ever they may be; and, above all, a highly efficient service delivery model.

“We have been able to do something unique in our industry by creating a scalable, economical and profitable model designed for the small businesses market,” said Cecchini. “This has been made possible by our tremendous technical resources, a highly skilled team and an unparalleled suite of proprietary and industry-leading technologies. These allow us to provide Fortune 500-level Internet security to the ‘Fortune 5 Million’, the smaller companies that need the same level of protection but don’t have the deep pockets of larger enterprises. This market continues to demonstrate enormous potential for us.”
