Tysons, VA, April 26, 2018 – EY announced that Adam Vincent, CEO of ThreatConnect, provider of the industry’s only extensible, intelligence-driven security platform, is a finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year® 2018 Award in the Mid-Atlantic region. The awards program, celebrating its 32nd year, recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Mr. Vincent was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges.
“I’m honored to have been nominated, and grateful to have been chosen as a finalist again,” said Adam Vincent, ThreatConnect, CEO. “This would not have been achievable had it not been for the amazing group of people I am lucky to work with. I’m proud of the progress we made in 2017 and hope that this year will be more of the same.”
ThreatConnect has had significant success since its founding – growing in revenue, customers and awards. In 2017 alone, ThreatConnect introduced a new suite of products built on the ThreatConnect Platform to better equip security teams in identifying the most relevant threats, proactively protect their network, and quickly respond to incidents in a measurable way. In doing so, the company experienced a 120% year over year growth from 2016; and increased its subscriptions from 13,000 to over 19,000 users, including 26% of the Fortune 500.
The Entrepreneur of the Year® Program takes place in more than 145 cities in 60 countries around the world, and is the only competitive awards program in the world for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Prior winners from Mid-Atlantic include Honest Tea, Rosetta Stone, LivingSocial, and Total Wine & More.
