LONDON.  Varonis Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:VRNS), a leading provider of software solutions that protect data from insider threats and cyberattacks, today announced that it has been named in the 2016 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list as one of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech sector companies in North America. Propelled by its success in preventing inside and outside attackers from stealing and corrupting sensitive files and email traffic, Varonis had a three-year revenue growth rate of 138%, having grown from $53 million in 2012 revenues to $127 million in 2015 revenues.

Yaki Faitelson, Varonis Co-Founder and CEO, said, “More than a decade ago, we began to develop the technology that is now Varonis. We have pioneered, grown and developed a set of solutions for managing and protecting the most critical and sensitive data that organisations have, from the inside out. We are pleased to be recognised for the second year in a row by Deloitte. Cybersecurity is not just a trend; it’s a harsh reality every organization of every size faces on a constant basis. Our growth is a testament to the rising criticality of protecting data assets and to the thousands of Varonis customers who are thwarting insider threats and outside attacks before they cause damage.”

“Our personal and professional lives are shifting in response to new technologies and business models that are changing the way we work and live,” said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and US Technology, Media, and Telecommunications leader. “The 2016 Technology Fast 500 winners are supporting this shift by creating experiences for their customers, surpassing expected possibilities and helping to envision even more effective and ingenious solutions.”
