LOS ANGELES, August 22, 2018 – Inc. magazine today ranked ISSQUARED® NO. 2991 on its 2018 annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. It is rare that an Inc. 5000 honoree will make it to this list four times in a row; of the tens of thousands of past Inc. 5000 honorees, only one in six will achieve such an amazing feat, and ISSQUARED® has achieved just that!

“ISSQUARED® is ecstatic to be included for a 4th consecutive time in the prestigious Inc. 5000 list, alongside other innovative companies in the US,” said Bala Ramaiah, Chief Executive Officer of ISSQUARED®. “Reminiscing about what drove this success last year, it was our laser-focus on the cybersecurity of our Enterprise customers, and protecting their IT Infrastructure and Operations. We are excited to see that by implementing our ORSUS™ IT Infrastructure Management Suite, our clients are enjoying IT operational ease in their industries, be it in Medical Diagnostics, Pharmaceuticals, Entertainment, Higher Education, Financial Services/Banking, or Construction.”
“Earlier this year in May 2018, ISSQUARED® acquired Starnet Data Design, and we are moving into the SMB and Micro-Business market segments, and additional US territories, looking to leverage the infusion of engineering talent to introduce Starnet’s existing customers to Identity & Access Management software and IT Managed Services that, historically, have been core capabilities for ISSQUARED®” said Suchinth Kumar, Chief Revenue Officer at ISSQUARED®.
“Our 24x7 SOC and NOC, part of our Global IT Operations Managed Services team, works tirelessly to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction from a cybersecurity and IT Operations perspective, and our unique corporate culture remains strong as we expand globally and continue to hire across the various US and international offices” said Ganesh Ramaiah, SVP of Managed Services.

Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
The 2018 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com is the most competitive crop in the list’s history.
