Tenable Named Fastest-Growing Private Company in Enterprise Security Software by Inc. Magazine

August 29, 2011

Company showcases more momentum than any other enterprise security software provider with an impressive 328 percent growth over 3 years


Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in Unified Security Monitoring (USM), today announced that it has been named the fasted-growing private company in the enterprise security software space by Inc. Magazine in its annual Inc. 5000 ranking.  Tenable ranked 934th overall with a 3-year sales growth of 328 percent and 17th among all security companies.


“In a stagnant economic environment, the companies on this year’s list report having created 350,000 jobs in the past three years,” said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. “The aggregate revenue among the honorees reached a remarkable $366 billion, up 14 percent from last year.”


Tenable Network Security’s continued success roots from its unique approach to helping enterprises and government agencies secure their networks from internal and external threats.  The company’s award-winning technology integrates SIEM, vulnerability management and compliance management into a single, enterprise-class system that provides proactive network defense through continuous monitoring and assessment.  The solution streamlines compliance reporting for key initiatives like PCI, SOX and HIPAA through customizable, pre-packaged dashboards and its new 3D visualization tool.


 “We’re changing the way that enterprises think about information security solutions by providing a robust, turn-key system that’s easy to scale, deploy and use,” said Ron Gula, CEO and CTO at Tenable Network Security.  “In our minds, there’s no such thing as ‘good enough security,’ which is why we’re consistently developing new resources and innovative solutions to keep our clients stay ahead of emerging threats.  This approach has been the cornerstone of our success, and we don’t have any plans of slowing down any time soon.”




The 2011 Inc. 500 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2007 to 2010. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2007. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2010. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2007 is $100,000; the minimum for 2010 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
