Hanover (13.11.2018) – The IT sector is one of the strongest growing and fastest expanding industries in Germany. The steps in the development of digital technologies are getting increasingly larger and in order to survive in this tough competition, specialized companies have to meet high demands, such as innovative ideas, strong know-how and special solution-oriented skills. Based on its many years of experience, the internationally operating consulting agency Deloitte knows about the efforts behind the success of fast-growing companies in this environment and has been honoring the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Germany every year since 2002.
“Numerous rapidly expanding companies from Germany have positioned themselves in future-oriented fields of technology in recent years. This is accomplished by entrepreneurs who have managed to consistently pursue their visions, with a willingness to take risks and an entrepreneurial spirit.“, says Dr. Andreas Gentner, Partner and Head of Technology, Media & Telecommunications EMEA at Deloitte.
“With the Fast 50 Award, we want to honor outstanding entrepreneurial achievements for Germany as a tech location.” The ranking is based on the percentage sales growth of the last four financial years. Hornetsecurity increased its growth by 117.42% during this period and was awarded with the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Award 2018 last week.
By now, the cloud security expert received this special recognition for the fourth time. “The award for once again being one of the 50 fastest-growing IT companies makes us extremely happy and is yet another clear sign for us that we are on the right track. It’s the proof for the hard work of the last years and we are proud of the success of our company. We will continue to focus on innovative solutions and high-quality products in the future.“, says Oliver Dehning, CEO of Hornetsecurity, who proudly received the award at “The New Yorker” in Cologne.
