PUNCH Cyber Analytics Group, a premium cyber operations and threat intelligence provider located in Northern Virginia, has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as #1248 on the 2017 Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest Growing Companies, including 16th among security companies. The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the U.S. economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Previous winners include Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn, Cylance, and other well-known industry leaders.

This recognition comes at a time of intense competition for advanced cyber security services in global, federal and commercial markets. “As a Virginia cyber company, we’re proud to be an Inc. 5000 winner,” says PUNCH CEO Brent Wrisley. “We set out to create a different kind of cyber company, driven by our focus on tackling the hardest network and data security problems. We appreciate Inc.’s recognition; it is a great reflection of our teammates’ hard work and our clients’ trust.”    

"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
