IRONSCALES, the leader in email security powered by AI, has been ranked 618 on Inc. magazine’s 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.
“Our fast growth was only possible thanks to the amazing team we have in place, and demonstrates the demand for change in the way we look at email security. IRONSCALES’ rank highlights the fact that many companies are now looking for next-generation technology to protect them from the constant change and challenges in the threat landscape,” said Eyal Benishti, CEO and founder, IRONSCALES. “Phishing scams are increasing in both complexity and consequences. Our AI-driven platform continuously detects and remediates email threats to help ensure our customers don’t fall victim to the next attack.”
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.

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.”
