Eden Prairie, MN, United States, 2012/10/19 - The Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal recognizes SecureConnect as one of the 50 fastest-growing private companies in Minnesota for the third year-in-a-row - SecureConnect.com.
SecureConnect Inc., an industry leader in providing Internet security and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance services, has been ranked No. 47 by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal in its annual Fast 50 list.
The list is comprised of the top 50 fastest-growing private companies in Minnesota with the rankings based on a three-year revenue growth cycle from 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies needed to accrue $1 million or more in annual revenue in the first year with consecutive revenue growth in each of the following two years. This is the third year SecureConnect has made the list which reaffirms how committed the employees are to the success of the organization.
“We have a fantastic team committed to keeping our customer’s data and businesses secure. As such, we are thrilled to be recognized for our hard work,” said Dave Perrill, President of SecureConnect Inc. “We’ll keep pushing the envelope to ensure our customers stay safe and stay one step ahead of the bad guys.”
SecureConnect’s success is driven by the high-demand for managed security services amongst small-to-medium sized business owners. According to recent studies, the restaurant, retail and hospitality industries account for over 85% of data breach investigations, more than a third of which occurred in franchised businesses. As a result, safeguarding customers’ credit and debit card information is a requirement in today’s high-tech environment. Offering a single-source vendor option at a fraction of the cost of doing it themselves, SecureConnect (secureconnect.com) provides comprehensive, turn-key solutions to merchants to secure their businesses and achieve PCI compliance. The foundation of the managed security package is a fully-managed firewall with around-the-clock monitoring and support, but SecureConnect also offers a host of additional services like a Breach Protection Program, internal and external vulnerability scanning, endpoint protection, data loss prevention, online PCI training module and rogue access point detection.
“With the PCI compliant process becoming an increasingly involved, convoluted and extensive process, SecureConnect does incredibly well at aiding the simplification of it all and providing adequate insight on maintaining compliance,” said Geritt Guillaume, Director of IT for McIndy Ventures, LLC.
The team at SecureConnect has a passion for technology and strong company vision, which combined with excellence in customer service, will continue to fuel the growth of the company and the development of innovative services.
