PLANO, Texas, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — CRITICALSTART, a leading provider of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, is proud to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company®, has named CRITICALSTART to its 2020 Fast Growth 150 list. Each year, CRN® recognizes the fastest-growing technology integrators, solution providers, and IT consultants across North America for the substantial growth and performance they’ve achieved over the previous two years. The elite group of companies named to this year’s list have generated a combined total revenue of more than $37.8 billion between 2018 and 2019.
The company’s growth can be attributed to the escalation in cyberattacks, which is driving demand for CRITICALSTART‘s MDR solution. As a result, CRITICALSTART‘s MDR business has exploded, with growth of 101% in 2019, compared to the previous fiscal year. This rapid growth is driven by mid-size firms and enterprises looking for help combatting today’s complex and rapidly evolving human and machine-generated security threats.
“We’re honored to be named to the CRN 2020 Fast Growth 150 list,” said CEO Rob Davis. “While the rate at which cyberattacks and breaches occur is skyrocketing, CRITICALSTART stands ready to meet the needs of enterprises as we scale our growth to stay ahead of customers’ cybersecurity needs.”
Today’s solution providers vie for market share within the highly competitive, fast-paced IT channel, making sustained growth and profitability noteworthy achievements. Ranking within the top 150 requires companies to continuously evolve with the seismic shifts taking place within the marketplace. The 2020 Fast Growth 150 list recognizes these companies’ extraordinary accomplishments and dedication to the IT channel.
