Lancope Named a TAG Top 40 Innovative Technology Company
Top 40 Companies to be Honored for Innovation and Contributions to Georgia’s Technology Community
ATLANTA (March 13, 2012) – The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced Lancope as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their degree of innovation, the scope and financial impact of their innovations and effect of such innovation in promoting Georgia’s technology industry throughout the U.S. and globally.
“The Top 40 companies are shining examples of what makes Georgia a hotbed for innovation in technology,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “Georgia is home to more than 13,000 technology companies, so we applaud the 2012 Top 40 finalists for standing out as leaders in innovation and in Georgia’s technology community. These are the types of companies that will help Georgia become recognized as one of the top states in the nation for technology.”
“This year we had a 30% increase in the number of applications over the past few years. We were very impressed by the quality and breadth of technology companies that applied,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “It was very difficult to choose the Top 40 because of the large number of deserving companies. We expect great things from our winners.”
As a rapidly growing company, Lancope is making significant contributions to Georgia’s leadership status in technology and information security. Lancope’s StealthWatch® System goes above and beyond the capabilities of conventional network and security solutions, providing end-to-end network visibility for detecting the full spectrum of internal and external threats facing today’s enterprises. Lancope technology protects more than 550 customers around the globe, including many in Georgia.
“With the recent explosion of technology trends and challenges including bring-your-own-device (BYOD) to the office, virtualization and advanced persistent threats (APTs), IT administrators are struggling to maintain network security and performance with existing tools,” said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. “By leveraging the information-rich metadata known as ‘flow data’ from routers, switches and firewalls, Lancope enables dynamic, global businesses to cost-effectively regain network visibility and integrity even amidst a constantly evolving technology and threat landscape. We are honored to be recognized by TAG for our innovative security efforts.”
