Binary Defense, a leader in the cybersecurity market, announced today that it was named to Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the nation, ranking at #1361.

Binary Defense provides managed cybersecurity services, including Managed Endpoint Detection & Response, Security Information & Event Monitoring, and Counterintelligence, all monitored by a Security Operations Center (SOC) staffed 24/7 at the headquarters in Stow, Ohio. “This is an exciting recognition,” said Mike Valentine, Chief Executive Officer at Binary Defense. “We attribute our growth to our technology and service. Our proprietary Managed Detection & Response solution is best-in-class. We built our SOC that we have staffed with top talent, and we have been able to make an impact with our customers by serving as an extension of their team. The industry recognizes the value we are providing as we strive to make the world a safer place by detecting threats of cyberattacks.”

The company grew 304% during the measured three-year period, which earned them the spot in the top 30% of the Inc. 5000 list. Binary Defense was also among the Top 20 fastest-growing security firms. In Ohio, Binary Defense was in the top 30 fastest-growing firms, and in the top 5 in the Northeast Ohio region. The organization had grown to 80 employees at the end of 2018, with another 20 to be hired by 2020.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”

In addition to the Inc. 5000 recognition, Binary Defense was named 2018 Partner of the Year by AT&T Cybersecurity (formerly AlienVault) and is listed in the Gartner Market Guide for Managed Detection & Response.
