LOS ANGELES, Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Awareness Technologies, Inc., the only provider of Complete Insider Threat Security On-Demand, today announced its inclusion in Software Magazine's Software 500 ranking of the world's largest software and service providers, now in its 29th year.
"Companies are increasingly becoming aware of the serious consequences that a lack of internal security poses to financial performance, competitiveness and profitability, and are turning to cloud based solutions to help manage internal threats effectively," said Brad Miller, CEO of Awareness Technologies. "We're proud to be recognized among the world's largest software providers for the second year in a row, and are dedicated to continuing to offer the most effective SaaS internal security solution."
"The 2011 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $541.5 billion worldwide for 2010, representing approximately 10 percent growth from the previous year's list," says John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com. "The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners. It is a quick reference of vendor viability."
The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest software and services suppliers, targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers, and business managers involved in software and services purchasing. Some 27 percent of the 2011 Software 500 companies are privately held. More than 100 companies are on the list in 2011 for the first time, a reflection of the dynamic nature of the industry.
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2010. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by King Content Co. and posted at www.softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
