On behalf of the entire Snyk community, I am excited to share that Forbes has named Snyk to the Forbes Cloud 100 list for the third consecutive year, coming in at #20 — which is 19 spots higher than last year! The full list was unveiled this morning.
The evolving need for secure digital transformation highlights the world’s need for a modern approach to cloud-native application security. Being recognized by Forbes Cloud 100 for the third year in a row, is further validation of our mission to empower developers to meet the demands of the digital world.
Peter McKay, CEO of Snyk
Snyk’s mission is to empower the world’s 43 million (and counting) developers and their organizations to build secure applications. From Snyk’s inception, we've always had the belief that organizations of all sizes and across every industry should be able to “develop fast and stay secure” and not compromise security to drive innovation. With millions of developers and thousands of organizations using Snyk today, we could not be more excited about the future of developer security and how developers and security teams are working together to drive developer productivity, improve security posture and achieve DevSecOps.
Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve accomplished since last year’s award:
More than doubled our customer base to more than 2,000 customers globally
Grew our employee count to more than 1,300 Snykers around the world
Acquired FossID, CloudSkiff, and cloud security company, Fugue
Helped customers with Log4Shell, saving them on average 280 hours of time
Announced partnership with Google Cloud for Assured Open Source Software initiative
Partnered with the Linux Foundation to publish The State of Open Source Security
Unveiled Snyk Cloud, the industry’s first developer-centric cloud security solution
This recognition is a testament to our incredible Snykers, company growth and maturation as an innovative company in 2022, and how Snyk is loved by developers and trusted by security. We can’t thank our users, customers, and partners enough — thank you!
