ATLANTA, January 24, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Apptega, the GRC software company striving to democratize cybersecurity and compliance, today announced a major milestone: its global customer base, which is increasingly comprised of leading managed security service providers, now collectively runs more than 10,000 compliance and security programs on its cloud-based platform.
That achievement coincides with a momentous year of growth, investment, and awards for the Atlanta-based company. Apptega, which has nearly doubled in the last 12 months the number of organizations using its platform to quickly and affordably meet among the most complex and rigorous cybersecurity standards, also landed at number 243 on the prestigious Inc. 5000. That list, which has been known to launch some of the most well-known global brands, ranks the fastest growing private businesses in the United States.
"Our growth is a testament to our amazing team, customers, and partners who are working ceaselessly to deliver powerfully simple cybersecurity and compliance management solutions," said Apptega CEO Armistead Whitney. "And while we enjoyed a successful 2022, we're still in the early innings of our journey to make security and compliance easy and accessible to all."
Apptega's swift growth has been in part propelled by a $37 million investment in March by Mainsail Partners, a renowned growth equity firm that prioritizes investments in B2B software companies with compelling business models in growing markets.
Apptega scores big in G2 Winter Awards

Among those designations: Best Estimated ROI for Mid-Market GRC Platforms, the Security Risk Analysis Platform Users Are Most Likely to Recommend, and the Momentum Leader — which ranks market growth relative to peers — in the GRC Platforms, Security Risk Analysis, and IT Risk Management categories. The 63 awards are among the most of any company in the governance, risk, and compliance spaces.
As cyber-threats and regulatory mandates continue to expand and become increasingly more onerous, organizations face mounting difficulties in implementing effective cybersecurity and compliance programs. With Apptega, organizations of all sizes, including Fortune 500 enterprises and managed security service providers (MSSPs), are meeting the challenges of cybersecurity, compliance, and certification. Apptega, which is backed by Mainsail Partners, a premier growth equity firm, is at the intersection of simple user experiences and patent-pending technology, providing an innovative platform paired with industry frameworks used to build, manage and report great cybersecurity.
