REDWOOD CITY, CALIF. - September 18, 2008 - Qualys®, Inc., the leading provider of on demand IT security risk and compliance management solutions, has been named one of America’s fastest-growing companies by Inc. Magazine for the second consecutive year. The recognition also highlights Qualys as the 25th-fastest growing security company. With 323 percent sales growth over the last three years, Qualys continues to benefit from the increased adoption of its Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) model by large enterprises to SMBs worldwide.
“Being recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the Inc 5000 is a testament to the increased global adoption of the SaaS model,” said Philippe Courtot, CEO and chairman of Qualys. “We expect our growth to continue as economic realities force organizations to re-assess their IT security budgets, and draining licensing models for a solution that offers cost, deployment and integration efficiency. Thank you to Inc, Magazine for the honor and to our customers and partners for embracing and seeing the SaaS value as that is what has put us where we are today.”
