Today we’re thrilled to share Deloitte has named Tanium a Technology Fast 500™ award winner and the 15th fastest-growing technology company in the nation and among the top 10 software companies. The Technology Fast 500 is an award program sponsored by Deloitte to recognize the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America, based on the percentage of fiscal year revenue growth from 2012 to 2015.
We’re honored to be recognized, as our rapid growth during the past four years has reinforced that the market is hungry for a unified security and IT management platform that actually scales to the size of modern networks. Our customers are the inspiration for every new update we deliver — an average of one per quarter over the last two years, and there is still plenty of room for continued innovation.

Tanium is now deployed at many of the world’s largest organizations, including each of the top 10 U.S. banks and 4 of the top 10 retailers. We’re growing in both depth and breadth. Our annual recurring revenue has grown substantially year-over-year, and we ended our year debt-free, with approximately $300M in cash. And our staff continues to grow to meet the demand: we anticipate 500 employees by year-end, up from 344 at the same milestone last year.
On behalf of the employees at Tanium, we sincerely appreciate this recognition.
