Ranked #415 on the Technology Fast 500 and Came in 45th for Companies with Annual Revenues of $50 Million or More in the Software Category
Redwood City, Calif. - October 21, 2010 - Qualys®, Inc., the leading provider of on demand IT security risk and compliance management solutions, today announced that it ranked number 415 on Technology Fast 500™, Deloitte’s ranking of 500 of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Additionally, Qualys was one of 19 private companies to be ranked on the Technology Fast 500 list from Silicon Valley and came in 45th for companies with annual revenues of $50 million or more in the Software category. Rankings are based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth during the period from 2005–2009. Qualys’ 207 percent growth rate is attributed to the company’s accelerated customer adoption of the QualysGuard IT security and compliance solutions, delivered in the cloud via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

"Deloitte commends Qualys for this impressive accomplishment.”
