Hanover (12.11.2019) – According to the latest study by the consulting company, Deloitte, the technology sector is not only certified to have new growing potential but is also becoming more than ever the engine of innovation and “business enabler” of the German economy. The key to this success are the sector’s entrepreneurs, whose innovative products respond courageously to economic challenges and complex customer requirements. The 50 fastest growing German tech companies have now been honored by Deloitte with the Technology Fast 50 Award. Hornetsecurity was delighted to receive the award for the fifth time this year.

“Thanks to our expertise as consultants, we at Deloitte know that hardly any business today can do without technology,” explains Dr. Andreas Gentner, Partner and Head of Technology, Media & Telecommunications EMEA at Deloitte. “Innovative technology makes us fit for the future across all industries, provides attractive offers to customers and thus strengthens Germany as a economic location”.

Deloitte emphasizes that the great challenge for companies is to maintain the balance between growth and expansion, while adapting organizational structures. The award goes to companies that manage to overcome these challenges. The ranking is based on the percentage of sales growth over the last four financial years.

During this period, Hornetsecurity achieved an increase of 154.84% and therefore received the Technology Fast 50 Award 2019. Oliver Dehning, CFO of Hornetsecurity, is thrilled about the fifth award and proudly received it on November 7th at the Museum of Hamburg History in Hamburg:

“Being awarded with the Technology Fast 50 Award proves to us that we are still on the right track. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Deloitte and our employees, without whom this achievement would not have been possible. We will continue to do our best to guarantee the best IT security for our customers”.

As part of its expansion strategy, Hornetsecurity recently extended the benefits of it’s product 365 Total Protection with additional essential features in the form of its latest service: Microsoft 365 Email Encryption.
