Cybersecurity leader ranks #17 overall for security operations innovation
EDEN PRAIRIE, MN – May 17, 2022 –Arctic Wolf®, a leader in security operations, today announced that it was named to the 2022 CNBC Disruptor 50 list. The list identifies fast-growing, innovative start-ups and Arctic Wolf is being recognized for its role in bringing security operations to organizations of virtually any sizes. This comes on the heels of a series of recent recognitions for Arctic Wolf’s innovation and industry leadership, including being named to Fast Company’s List of the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies.
As the number of cyberattacks continue to rise, companies are struggling to keep up with the evolving threat landscape. Since its founding, Arctic Wolf has been on a mission to end cyber risk. Arctic Wolf is tackling digital threats through an operations-first approach with its Security Operations Cloud. This makes it fast and easy for organizations to have 24×7 security operations for a fraction of the cost of other legacy alternatives.
“Recent events have shown us that delivering just another tool or a people-powered service is largely not enough to meet the security needs of modern enterprises,” said Nick Schneider, Arctic Wolf’s president and chief executive officer. “We’re empowering our customers by giving them a comprehensive system-of-record that is designed to seamlessly unify dispersed security tools and help enable organizations achieve effective security outcomes, coupled with a progressive security journey towards cyber resilience. We’re honored to be on this list and believe this win further validates our mission to end cyber risk.”
Effectively reducing the noise for inundated security teams, Arctic Wolf is simplifying cybersecurity operations through its Security Operations Cloud. The Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud streamlines automated threat detection by swiftly ingesting data from endpoint, network, identity and cloud sources through its Open XDR architecture and turning that data into actionable insights for customers, minimizing false positives and alert fatigue.
In the past year, Arctic Wolf has seen significant growth and demand for its business. In July 2021, the company raised $150 million in Series F financing. Amplifying its business momentum, Arctic Wolf also expanded its incident response capabilities through its acquisition of Tetra Defense. In addition, the company expanded its operations to EMEA and opened its first European Security Operations Center (SOC) in Frankfurt, Germany.
Further indicating its leadership in the market, Arctic Wolf was named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Managed Detection and Response Services 2021 Vendor Assessment. Arctic Wolf was also the highest grossing vendor in Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Managed Security Service market share by revenue in 2021 according to Gartner’s report, Market Share: Managed Security Services, Worldwide, 2021.
