Adlumin Named to Prestigious Inc. 5000 List for the Third Consecutive Year

We’re excited to share that we’ve been named to the Inc. 5000 list ranking America’s fastest growing private companies. This is Adlumin’s third straight year on the list and our continued rapid growth propelled us to number 438. This ranking was fueled by an average median three-year revenue growth rate of 1,320%, which boosted our rank by more than 100 spots from the 2022 list.

Adlumin is focused on addressing the inequities that exist today between an organization’s size and its ability to effectively protect itself against the growing threat of sophisticated cyberattacks. For too long, only the world’s largest organizations – in both the public and private sector – have had the tools and resources needed to defend themselves. Our success over the past year and the steep growth trajectory we’ve maintained for the past several years is a testament to our mission and our amazing team’s ability to execute against it.

While the cybersecurity industry has discriminated, in many ways, against smaller organizations, cybercriminals have not. Growing and mid-market organizations (like many of our fellow honorees on the Inc. 5000 list) have personal and proprietary information and valuable operations to protect. These organizations are targeted by the same threat actors and with the same aggressive tactics as the world’s largest organizations.

“Adlumin is here to ensure organizations of all sizes have the capabilities they need to defend against any cyber threats they face. We’ve made significant strides to further that mission over the past year by continuing to enhance our security operations platform and most recently, with the launch of a new offering that makes incident response services affordable and attainable for organizations of all sizes, said Robert Johnston, founder and CEO of Adlumin. “Our growth this year and our ranking among the top 10% of America’s fastest growing companies is a strong validation for the impact we’re having at our expanding list of partners and customers.”

For this year’s Inc. 5000 list, we join a class of honorees that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

Thank you to Inc. Magazine for the gargantuan effort of pulling this list together. Thank you to our entire Adlumin team who make this company better and stronger every day. And most of all, thank you to our partners and customers for placing your trust in us. We’ll only get better and stronger from here.
