NORWALK, CT – Today Inc. Magazine announced its coveted Inc. 500|5000 list, with Datto, the preferred global provider of backup, disaster recovery (BDR) and intelligent business continuity (IBC) solutions, ranking as the No. 314th fastest-growing privately owned company in the nation.
Datto shares this list with fellow 2014 honorees like GoPro, Fuhu, and Tough Mudder. “Each time we’re recognized for an honor and award, it’s truly surreal,” said Austin McChord, Datto Founder and CEO. “Making the Inc. 500 list for the third straight year is an unbelievable and humbling experience for the company. Because of our partners continued support we have achieved these incredible results. Knowing that our team is building the most robust business continuity and BDR solution in the world, makes all this that much sweeter.”
In addition to marking three years in a row, Datto also has the distinction of being just one of 19 companies on this year’s listing with three or more Inc. 500 honors. Some of the three or more appearances include Alex and Ani (retail), I.T. Source (IT Services), Shaycore Enterprises (construction), 29 Prime (Advertising/Marketing), and Apex Resources (Manufacturing). Started in 2007, Datto has experienced meteoric growth with multiple high double-digit growth years while achieving nearly $50 million in revenue in 2013. Currently the company is on target to reach yet another high double-digit annual growth milestone in 2014.
Headquartered in Norwalk, CT with offices in Toronto, London, Sydney, soon to open in Rochester, NY and a manufacturing facility in Monroe, CT, Datto has more than 300 employees and is poised for further domestic and international expansion in the near future. “What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
