“We are extremely proud to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row, an honor only 1-in-3 companies receive,” said A-LIGN founder and Chief Executive Officer, Scott Price. “Our 465% three-year growth is not only a testament of our dedicated and hardworking team but also of the relationship and support of our clients. This achievement marks yet another exciting milestone for A-LIGN. With our new partnership with FTV Capital, A-LIGN will continue our path to unprecedented growth to reach the next summit in our expansion.”
In correlation with A-LIGN’s growth is the increasing demand for information security and privacy for businesses across a variety of sectors. The multi-billion-dollar market is driven by the increase of cyber-attacks, businesses outsourcing, and use of third-party vendors. With the industry growing exponentially, A-LIGN expects to hire 100 additional employees over the next 12 months.
In order to satisfy the demand in these markets, A-LIGN has worked to expand its existing services to include more robust penetration testing services, such as automated penetration testing, subscription-based penetration testing, and vulnerability assessment services. A-LIGN has also expanded its compliance and cyber risk and privacy services to meet the growing needs to ensure that it is able to continue meeting any compliance requirement that an organization may address.
