First-ever roundup of top 250 public and private U.S.- based companies that proved management excellence across the middle market
FOSTER CITY, Calif., Nov. 3, 2021 – Exabeam, the leader in next-gen SIEM and XDR, has today been named in Inc.’s first annual Best-Led Companies list that recognizes a select, data-driven list of the very strongest U.S. firms with revenue of $50 million to $2 billion. This is the first Inc. recognition list to honor both public and private companies.
The final list recognizes 250 companies that are agile enough to maneuver but also big enough to have a broad impact. These companies employ 35 million people, about one of four U.S. workers. All 250 have a successful track record with leadership teams that spur solid performance, create value, penetrate markets, engage with customers, and more.
To be considered for the list, each company responded to a series of questions about performance, executive team, and leadership. All were then analyzed via an algorithm that identified the very best companies according to their leadership teams’ superlative accomplishments in four key areas: performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent; and leadership team.
“This inaugural list of companies represents the remarkable mid-sized companies, both public and private, often founder-led, that are at the vanguard of reinventing American business,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. magazine. “With their leadership, all business will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities.”
“To be placed on Inc’s inaugural Best-Led Companies List is an honor and a testament to the founders of Exabeam, our leadership team, and our employees. We are on a balanced growth path that is well-aligned with our top customer success priorities,” said Michael DeCesare, CEO and president, Exabeam. “Exabeam was one of the first cybersecurity companies to help modernize today’s security operations centers (SOCs) by automating the entire threat detection, investigation and response (TDIR) workflow for security analysts. As a leader in next-gen SIEM and XDR, we greatly accelerate the time it takes for security teams to conduct deep investigations and more quickly resolve security incidents across their organizations.”
Exabeam’s recognition comes on the back of several notable achievements over the past year, including a $200 million Series F funding round with a $2.4 billion valuation, the expansion of its partnership with Google Cloud in September, and the advancement of its global presence with the opening of an office in Pune, India. The company has also been the recipient of several other awards and recognitions such as being named to the 2021 Forbes Cloud 100 and winning the 2021 CISO Choice Award in Network Security.
To compile the list, Inc. evaluated private and public U.S.-based companies with a 2020 revenue of $50 million to $2 billion or a valuation of $50 million to $10 billion using a proprietary 12-point measure of management excellence generated with input from partners at Pitchbook and Shango Labs.
