IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NetWrix Corporation, a highly specialized provider of solutions for IT infrastructure auditing and compliance, today announced that the company ranked #33 among software vendors and #388 overall on the 2012 Inc. 500/5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies published by Inc. Magazine.
The 2012 edition of the Inc. 500 list is the magazine's 31st annual ranking, where NetWrix is making its first appearance on the list. The 2012 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. Magazine (available on newsstands August 21 to November 15, 2012 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop of companies in the list's history. To make the cut, companies had to achieve a staggering minimum of 770% sales growth.
In addition to its #388 overall ranking and #33 ranking in the software vendor category, NetWrix was ranked as America's #2 fastest-growing software vendor among all systems management software developers. NetWrix is the nation's fastest-growing company in the IT infrastructure auditing, security and compliance software space.
The Inc. 500 list represents America's fastest-growing independent entrepreneurs; Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known companies gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500/5000.
The unprecedented growth that propelled NetWrix to its first Inc. 500 ranking originated primarily from the booming sales of NetWrix Change Reporter Suite and NetWrix Active Directory Change Reporter, two flagship solutions for IT infrastructure change auditing and compliance.
"The fact that NetWrix made it in the Inc. 500 and received such a high ranking this year is really amazing and a prestigious public recognition of our efforts," said Michael Fimin, CEO and President of NetWrix Corporation. "We are very proud of this achievement, and I would like to extend my gratitude to the team at NetWrix and to all our loyal customers and partners."
The 2012 Inc. 500/5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2011.
"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward," said Eric Schurenberg, Editor, Inc. Magazine. "Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is."
