NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Inc. magazine today revealed that Arkose Labs is No. 195 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
The Inc. 5000 list is out today: @ArkoseLabs makes its list debut, cracking the Top 200 at 195
“In the last three years, Arkose Labs has experienced tremendous growth due in no small part to our best-in-class online fraud prevention technology and our outstanding team of cybersecurity professionals,” said Kevin Gosschalk, CEO of Arkose Labs. “We are honored to be included on the Inc. 5000 list as we continue our vital work during a time when online fraud is at an all-time high.”
The Inc. 5000 recognition comes on the heels of an exciting few months for Arkose Labs.
- The company earlier this month unveiled an industry-first $1 million Credential Stuffing Warranty. This unprecedented vendor warranty offers a commercial guarantee against credential stuffing attacks, covering customers up to $1 million in response expenses. The costs covered include legal consultation, forensic services, notification expenses, identity theft and credit monitoring.
- Three key leadership hires took place: Richard Dufty joined as Chief Revenue Officer, Joe Hsy as Chief Technology Officer, and Ashish Jain as Chief Product Officer.
- In May, Arkose Labs raised a $70 million Series C funding round led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2, with additional participation from Wells Fargo Strategic Capital and previous investors M12 and PayPal Ventures, bringing the total funding to $114 million to date.
- Arkose Labs continues to receive recognition for its achievements with a number of prestigious industry awards. In 2021, Arkose Labs won three Cyber Defense Magazine Awards for Hot Company in Fraud Prevention; CEO of the Year; and Top Women in Cybersecurity. The company was also shortlisted for Best Use of Security/Anti-Fraud Solution in Payments by Fintech Futures’ 2021 PayTech Awards, and named an honoree for Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas.
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
