Inc. magazine revealed that Infogressive, Inc. is No. 3272 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“Having merged ASCEND TECHNOLOGIES LLC (Ascend) with Infogressive, Inc. in July 2020, we are enthusiastic about the recognition Infogressive has received in the Inc. 5000 ranking,” says Wayne Kiphart, CEO, Ascend Technologies. “The Infogressive team has brought extraordinary cybersecurity expertise to the Ascend organization.

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
