Securityhunter Inc. earned the top SD&I Fast50 overall ranking.

“The companies in the SD&I Fast50 are primarily private firms, some 97 percent,” says SD&I Editor Deborah O’Mara. “Although they are not the largest firms in the industry, many base their success on providing new technologies and innovative solutions and especially, their round-the-clock attentiveness to the customer.”
