Deep Instinct is proud to have achieved several key milestones this year. In April, we announced our $100M Series D funding round let by BlackRock with an additional $67M investment from Chrysalis Investments. We also expanded our core executive leadership team, first welcoming Jeffery Giannetti as Chief Revenue Officer, and adding Scott Stout as Vice President of Americas Sales and Brian Feeney as Vice President of Global Channels and MSSPs. Now, our #28 ranking in Deloitte’s annual 2021 Technology Fast 500™ list is another notable benchmark highlighting a year of tremendous growth and market validation.
“We are honored to be recognized in this year’s Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list. I’m very proud of the work we’ve done to make Deep Instinct a leader in AI-based deep learning for cybersecurity at a time when ransomware attacks are at an all-time high,” said Guy Caspi, CEO and co-founder of Deep Instinct. “Deep Instinct is growing rapidly and hiring the talent needed to meet the growing demand for prevention-first security solutions that stop the world’s most challenging cyber threats. We look forward to carrying this exciting momentum into 2022 and beyond.”
Deep Instinct’s #28 ranking as one of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies in North America marks our first inclusion on the list as we grew revenue 7,199% over the last four years from 2017 to 2020.
This latest recognition adds to a year of big “wins.” Earlier this year, we were recognized as a winner in the 2021 Fortress Cyber Security and 2021 CISO Choice Awards for the category of “endpoint security.” We were also named Best Cybersecurity Startup in the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, and recognized in the Global Annual Achievement Awards for Artificial Intelligence from Awards.AI.
We have a lot to celebrate and are incredibly proud of our team’s efforts to become a driving force for innovation around malicious threat prevention. The interest and support we’ve received from our investors and customers has been amazing, and we are eager to continue innovating with our award-winning platform.
