Inc. Magazine Names Qualys One of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies for Fourth Consecutive Year

Qualys Ranked 46th in the Security Industry and 9th Among Security Companies with Revenues Over $50 Million

Redwood City, Calif. - September 7, 2010 - Qualys®, Inc., the leading provider of on demand IT security risk and compliance management solutions, announced today that it was ranked number 2,382 by Inc. magazine in its fourth annual Inc. 5,000 – an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest growing companies across all industries. With 104-percent growth over the past three years, Qualys ranked as the 46th fastest growing security company, and came in ninth for security companies with annual revenues of $50 million or more. With this accomplishment, Qualys joins the rarified company of enterprises who have appeared on the list every year.

“The leaders of the companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression,” said Inc. President Bob LaPointe. “The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs.”

“Since our inception, we work closely with our customers and partners to deliver a comprehensive Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) security product line to help them keep business-technology systems secure and within regulatory compliance,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys. “Using the SaaS model, we continue to add new services to help customers address their IT security and compliance challenges in the most efficient and cost effective ways.”

The Inc. 5000 listing is the latest in a series of accolades for Qualys. This year alone, Qualys earned two SC Magazine Awards (Best SME Solution and Best Vulnerability Management Solution), and ChannelWeb named the company one of the Coolest Cloud Security Vendors. Qualys’ vulnerability management market leadership is also validated by major industry analysts. Forrester(1) has stated that “Qualys leads the pack,” IDC(2) market share data has Qualys as the market leader among device vulnerability assessment vendors, and Qualys received the highest rating of “Strong Positive” in the Gartner Marketscope(3) for Vulnerability Assessment.

“We share the Inc. 5000 ranking with all our customers and partners that have been supporting us since the beginning and have recognized the value of delivering security solutions via the cloud,” added Courtot.
