HALOCK Security Labs, a cyber-security firm, announced today that Inc. magazine has named it one of the Top 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the country.

This is the first year that HALOCK has been recognized for growth and is one of the few firms in the cyber-security industry to make the Inc. 5000 list. HALOCK earned the No. 4,341 overall ranking; recognized for significant growth over the previous three years. In that same time, HALOCK nearly doubled its staff and revenues. The firm focuses on a variety of industry segments including financial services, healthcare, legal, cloud/SaaS, education, retail and energy.

The 2015 Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest growing companies is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2011 to 2014. To qualify, companies must meet minimum revenue requirements and have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2011. Companies must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies — as of December 31, 2014.

"We are honored to be recognized as one of the country's fastest growing companies," said Jim Mirochnik, HALOCK CEO. "Not many companies celebrating their 19th year in business are at the same time celebrating such rapid growth. In the competitive cyber-security industry, we differentiate ourselves through Purpose Driven Security® ─ our approach to defining and applying just the right amount of security, customized to each client's business purpose. Our focus on our clients' business purpose fosters multi-year partnerships and these multi-year partnerships have fueled our significant growth."
