“2015 was a pivotal year for RiskIQ, and being recognised by JMP Securities reinforces the growth we are experiencing,” said Elias Manousos, CEO of RiskIQ, "Organisations are waking up to the reality that they must adopt online channels in order to stay competitive and succeed. These channels also expose them to significant risk. The world’s leading companies rely on RiskIQ to reduce digital risk and secure their internet facing digital assets as they expand their presence to include web, mobile and social channels.”

In 2015, RiskIQ maintained its momentum to reach the top 2% of security companies in terms of revenue, and doubled its business for the third year in a row. This tremendous growth is based on the company’s commitment to security research and development, and its ability to deliver innovative solutions that help customers discover, monitor and protect their known, unknown and rogue internet facing digital assets.
