Cofense Included in 2018 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Rising Businesses for 4th Successive Year

August 19, 2018


Each year, Inc. Magazine collects and publishes the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest expanding privately owned small businesses in the United States – the most active part of the U.S economy. The firms in the 2018 Inc. 5000 list collectively made over $206.2 billion in income in 2017 with the top firm – SwanLeap – recording an astounding 3-year development rate of 75,661%. Even number 5,000 – Pedigree Technologies – recorded three-year expansion of 57%.

For the fourth successive year, Cofense – the prominent human-driven anti-phishing solution supplier – has been incorporated on the list after recording remarkable cumulative three-year expansion of 429%. That was sufficient to get the Leesburg, VA-based firm position 1,145 in the list. In 2017, the firm generated yearly income of $52.2 million.

2017 has been an important year for Cofense with the previous six months seeing the company go from strength to strength. Cofense has rebranded from PhishMe, has finished the main purchase, and has changed to a channel-only business model.

The company is continuously inventing and has started new cybersecurity solutions in the previous year to better safeguard its clients from phishing, electronic mail impersonation attacks and other cyberthreats. The latest fresh product is its Phishing-Specific Orchestration, Automation and Response platform – Cofense Vision. Cofense Triage has also got the main update in 2018.

These updates and new product announcements have assisted the company to further accelerate expansion, grow its income, and significantly grow its client base both nationally and internationally. Through the firm’s training program tens of millions of workers have now been changed into safety assets who can find phishing dangers and assist to interrupt phishing attacks more quickly with fewer resources.

“We are thankful to be respected on the Inc. 5000 for four successive years,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO and Co-Founder of Cofense. “I am humbled to work together with such a great team at Cofense and look forward to sustained expansion and success.”
