Inc. Magazine Places ClearDATA in the Top Third of its Annual List of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies

AUSTIN, Texas (Aug. 12, 2020) -- ClearDATA®, the leader in healthcare public cloud security, compliance and privacy, today announced it ranked No. 1,724 on Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This is the first time ClearDATA has been recognized on Inc. 5000 and is the culmination of the company’s thought leadership in healthcare cloud, security, compliance and privacy, providing a robust SaaS platform and service solution to eliminate the burden of modernizing and protecting healthcare IT for payers, providers, life sciences and health tech organizations.

“In recent years, we have further implemented an automation-first philosophy across our organization, developing solutions that accelerate clients’ time-to-market and safeguard sensitive patient data by detecting and remediating security and compliance deviations,” said Darin Brannan, Chief Executive Officer at ClearDATA. “It's rewarding to be recognized by Inc. for our efforts to de-risk healthcare’s adoption of the cloud by providing a platform where industry can securely transmit, store, share and scale-up patient data.”

The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

ClearDATA’s Inc. 5000 recognition comes on the heels of their recognition as the Best Overall Healthcare Cybersecurity Company in 2020 by MedTech Breakthrough and one of Fast Company’s 2020 World’s Most Innovative Companies in the security category. The company was also honored alongside BehaVR – an organization leveraging VR for real-time patient behavioral health treatment - receiving Microsoft’s 2020 Health Innovation Award for excellence in protecting health information.
