Global provider of next-generation cybersecurity software recognized as one of Maryland’s leading tech companies
Tenable Network Security, Inc., a global leader transforming security technology for the business needs of tomorrow, was recognized by the Chesapeake Regional Tech Council (CRTC) as the recipient of the 2016 CRTC TechAwards Governor’s Award for the company’s contributions to the Maryland business community.
The CRTC TechAwards honor the region’s rising tech companies, outstanding innovators and all-around top companies. This year’s TechAwards featured the debut of the CRTC Governor’s Award, to recognize a Maryland tech company that has given the most to the region through growth, job creation, promotion of a sense of community and community service.
“We’ve experienced tremendous growth in the last several years, both internationally and in the United States, and much of our success stems from the rich cybersecurity ecosystem and talent in Maryland,” said Ron Gula, CEO, Tenable Network Security. “Our commitment to the local tech and business communities remains steadfast and I am both honored and humbled that Tenable was chosen as the first ever recipient of the CRTC Governor’s Award.”
Last year Tenable hired more than 200 employees and plans to add 200 more in 2016. The company also expanded its local footprint, adding 13,000 square feet of office space in a building adjacent to its Columbia headquarters.
The company has also been recognized for its growth and innovation over the last 12 months. The Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) and Howard County Economic Development Authority (HCEDA) provided Tenable with $1.1 million in conditional loans and grants to support cybersecurity job growth in Maryland over the next five years. Additionally, the company has earned “best workplace” recognition from The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore magazine, Glassdoor, Washingtonian magazine and The Washington Post.
