Continues strong growth as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America
LINDON, UT (September 6, 2012) — DigiCert, Inc., a leading online security provider for many of the most recognized brands and web sites in the world, has been recognized in the 2012 Inc. 500/5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies, ranking as the 19th-fastest growing security company. The announcement marks consecutive appearances for DigiCert and continues a streak of several business awards noting the company’s rapid but sustainable growth, feats the company attributes to its focus on customer value and award-winning support.
“Making the 2012 Inc. 500/5000 list is another indication that we’re on the right track in offering our customers a valued experience within the online authentication and encryption space through an unmatched focus on customer support and product flexibility,” said DigiCert CEO Nicholas Hales. “Guided by listening to customer input, we’re focused on bringing new products and tools that enhance our clients’ security operations while bringing increased efficiencies to ease their daily tasks.”
DigiCert is currently the world’s third-largest issuer of high-assurance SSL certificates, which include Extended Validation Certificates (EV). The company’s growing client list includes more than 60,000 of the world’s leading organizations including government, finance, education, and social networks from startups to Fortune 500® companies. Many larger organizations managing hundreds or even thousands of certificates across an enterprise environment, including three of the Alexa top five, benefit from the efficiencies and customization of DigiCert’s Managed PKI services.
With increasing numbers of organizations recognizing the need to instill trust in their online users, DigiCert is leading the way with stringent verification procedures for its SSL certificates, including EV SSL, combined with competitive pricing and award-winning customer support. Last month, DigiCert demonstrated this commitment again with the announcement of EV Code Signing Certificates, which employ enhanced security to safeguard application code from tampering and increase user trust. Just last week, DigiCert announced the completion of a 12-month initiative that has resulted in 50 percent improvement in its SSL certificate issuance times, typically issuing high-assurance certificates in under one hour.
Company rankings for the 2012 Inc. 500/5000 list are determined by percentage of annual revenue growth over a three-year period. Past winners include Zappos, Microsoft and Oracle, and newcomers to the 2012 list include Facebook and Levi Strauss. A complete list is available on the Inc. 500/5000 website.
