PITTSBURGH, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wombat Security Technologies (Wombat), the leading provider of cyber security awareness and training, today announced it ranked #135 on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies in North America. This is the third consecutive year Wombat has ranked in the top 150 of the Fast 500, and its 840% growth resulted in a higher position than in 2016.
