[Eden Prairie, MN] (March 8, 2022) — Arctic Wolf, a leader in security operations, has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022. The award honors businesses that are making the biggest impact on their industries and culture as a whole—ultimately thriving in today’s ever-changing world. These companies are creating the future today with some of the most inspiring accomplishments of the 21st century.
“We are thrilled to join the ranks of iconic industry leaders such as Snowflake, Shopify, and Netflix, and be recognized for our innovation in executing our mission to end cyber risk,” said Dan Larson, chief marketing officer, Arctic Wolf. “Despite continued investment in cybersecurity, users and businesses suffer from cyber attacks every day. A radically different approach is needed to solve this perennial challenge and protect the world from cyber threat actors. It is truly an honor to receive this prestigious award, and it further validates that Arctic Wolf is pioneering a new approach that will change the security industry for the better.”
Arctic Wolf has focused on the operational approach to cybersecurity since its founding, recognizing that cybersecurity isn’t solely a tools problem or a staffing problem—it is an operational problem. This innovative mindset helped the company create its cloud-based security operations platform to drive a critical shift in the cybersecurity industry, shaping the next generation of security technologies and approaches that can reduce cyber risk to almost zero.
Unlike others in the cybersecurity companies that are just now starting to parse and integrate data from multiple attack surfaces, the Arctic Wolf® Security Operations Platform was built from day one on an open XDR architecture to seamlessly ingests data from endpoint, network, identity, and cloud sources to deliver automated threat detection and response at scale. The ability of Arctic Wolf to unify an organization’s security data, tools, and operations ensures only verified security incidents are escalated to customers, effectively eliminates alert fatigue, and provides internal security resources with the time needed to focus on hardening their overall security posture.
In 2021, Arctic Wolf doubled down on solving the human element of cybersecurity with the launch of Arctic Wolf Managed Security Awareness®, a radical new approach to transforming user behavior to strengthen cyber resilience. Offered as a fully managed solution, Managed Security Awareness delivers a heightened interactive training experience, utilizing microlearning, account takeover monitoring, and awareness coaching to harden organizations’ security postures from the inside out.
Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking businesses across the globe and industries. They also judged nominations received through their application process.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
“The world’s most innovative companies play an essential role in addressing the most pressing issues facing society, whether they’re fighting climate change by spurring decarbonization efforts, ameliorating the strain on supply chains, or helping us reconnect with one another over shared passions,” said Fast Company Deputy Editor David Lidsky.
For the second year in a row, to coincide with the issue launch, Fast Company will host its Most Innovative Companies Summit on April 26–27. The virtual, multiday summit celebrates the Most Innovative Companies in business, and provides an early look at major business trends and an inside look at what it takes to innovate in 2022. Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2022) is available online here, as well as in-app form via iTunes, and on newsstands beginning March 15. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
