SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Cymphonix®, a leader in Secure Web Gateway solutions, today announced it has been named, for the third consecutive year, as one of the nation's fastest-growing private companies by Inc. magazine in its fourth annual Inc. 5000 list. Within the security industry, Cymphonix was ranked as the 3rd fastest-growing private company in Utah, and 40th in the nation. They ranked 1798th overall, posting a 152 percent revenue growth in three years from 2006 to 2009.



"We're pleased to be named to the Inc. 5000 for three consecutive years and particularly proud that our growth has occurred despite a very difficult macroeconomic environment," said Brent Nixon, CEO of Cymphonix. "As Internet traffic and applications continue to explode in growth, from cloud computing to YouTube, companies are faced with the daunting task of ensuring Internet bandwidth is available for mission critical activities. Cymphonix has experienced high demand by incorporating application understanding, bandwidth shaping, and content, threat and user awareness into our appliances to become one of the most robust Secure Web Gateway solutions on the market."

The Inc. 5000 list also named Cymphonix as the 41st fastest-growing Utah-based company overall.

The 2010 Inc. 5000 serves as a unique illustration of the profound changes taking place in the U.S. economy.

Music website Pandora, convenience store chain 7-Eleven, Brooklyn Brewery, and Radio Flyer, maker of the iconic children's red wagon, are among the prominent brands featured on this year's list.

"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."
