Leading cybersecurity firm Sera-Brynn retains its top ranking in Virginia

Suffolk, Va. August 20, 2015 — Sera-Brynn is still on a hot streak.

Leading cybersecurity firm Sera-Brynn retained its position for the third consecutive quarter at No. 1 in Virginia and No. 16 in the world on the Cybersecurity Ventures global list of the top “500 Hot Cybersecurity Companies to Watch in 2015.” The recognition for Sera-Brynn coincides with the firm’s expansion into the international market with clients in Asia.

“One of the reasons we continue to be on the list is because of our unique partnerships with the insurance, legal and financial services industries, which makes our approach to cybersecurity a holistic risk management strategy,” said Sera-Brynn CEO Rob Hegedus. “The bottom line is that working with us means our clients suffer the least amount of financial damage after a cyber attack.”

The quarterly list tracks the hottest and most innovative cybersecurity firms in the world based on a number of selection criteria developed by Cybersecurity Ventures, based in Menlo Park, Calif. The firm is a research and market intelligence company focused on startup and emerging companies, and major players, in the cybersecurity industry.

Of 35 Virginia cybersecurity firms in the rankings, Sera-Brynn is the only company in the top 60, according to the list that is updated quarterly. Sera-Bryan shares the top 20 distinction with major tech and contracting firms such as FireEye, IBM and Lockheed Martin.

Clients of Sera-Brynn include Fortune 500 firms, large retail chains, healthcare systems, state governments and large municipalities, insurance companies, financial institutions and nationally recognized non-profits.

The Cybersecurity 500 isn’t a ranking of companies by revenue, employees, or annual growth, but rather a list generated from responses from experts in the industry, research of cybersecurity events and news sources, said Cybersecurity Ventures CEO Steve Morgan.

“We do not think a list of the largest cybersecurity companies is useful to our target audience of cyber and IT security decision makers, evaluators, and recommenders,” Morgan said. “They already know who the biggest vendors are. Instead, we give a nod to the hottest and most innovative companies.”
