Eden Prairie, MN, United States, 2012/11/30 - Information services provider, Lead411, distinguishes SecureConnect as one of the 200 fastest-growing technology companies within the United States - Lead411.com / SecureConnect.com.
SecureConnect Inc., an industry leader in providing Internet security and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance services, has been ranked No. 135 by Lead411 in its third-annual Tech 200 list.
The list is comprised of the top 200 fastest-growing technology companies nationwide. The rankings are based on a two-year revenue percentage growth cycle from 2009 to 2011. To qualify, companies needed to be a privately-held business within a technology related industry and accrue $1 million or more in revenue in the past year. SecureConnect’s impressive growth-rate of 57% cemented their place on the list at No. 135. SecureConnect was also recognized by Lead411 as the 39th fastest technology company to reach $5 million.
“As professionals who share a passion for technology, it is an honor to be recognized on a technology specific ranking like the Tech 200,” said Dave Perrill, President of SecureConnect Inc. “The hard work and dedication of our expert staff has allowed us to achieve such great growth and success.”
SecureConnect’s success is driven by the high-demand for managed security services amongst small-to-medium sized business owners. With the increase of security breaches, safeguarding customers’ credit and debit card information is a requirement in today’s high-tech environment. Offering a single-source vendor option at a fraction of the cost of doing it themselves, SecureConnect provides comprehensive, turn-key solutions to merchants to secure their businesses and achieve PCI compliance. The foundation of the managed security package is a fully-managed firewall with around-the-clock monitoring and support, but SecureConnect also offers a host of additional services like a Breach Protection Program, internal and external vulnerability scanning, endpoint protection, data loss prevention, online PCI training module and rogue access point detection.
“The technology industry is highly competitive and ever-changing,” Perrill said. “We will continue to strive to provide our customers with the best and latest network security technologies available.”
