Cybrary’s co-founder and President, Ralph Sita, credits the remote work environment, prioritization on security, and shift to online training with the company’s recent growth and success. “Like many companies, this year posed numerous business challenges, but it also generated new opportunities for growth and innovation,” said Sita. “We’re honored to be recognized as one of the Deloitte 2020 Fastest-Growing Companies and are excited about our continued momentum going into 2021.”

Additionally, Cybrary has been offering free courses each month to help security professionals navigate their cybersecurity career path.

“For more than 25 years, we’ve been honoring companies that define the cutting edge and this year’s Technology Fast 500 list is proof positive that technology — from software and digital media platforms, to biotech — truly does permeate so many facets of our lives,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “We congratulate this year’s winners, especially during a time when innovation is needed more than ever to address the monumental challenges posed by the pandemic.”
“Each year the Technology Fast 500 listing validates how important technology innovation is to our daily lives. It was interesting to see this year that while software companies continued to dominate, biotech companies rose to the top of the winners list for the first time, demonstrating that new categories of innovation are accelerating in the pursuit of making life easier, safer and more productive,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications, within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “We extend sincere congratulations to these well-deserved winners — who all embody a spirit of curiosity, and a never-ending commitment to making technology advancements possible.”
