Winners were selected based upon their percentage of revenue growth over the five-year period between 2006 and 2011.

“Layer 7 Technologies and all the Technology Fast 500 winners in 2011 have shown a remarkable drive for creativity and innovation, and of course growth, particularly when you look at their accomplishments in the context of current economic challenges,” said Richard Lee, National Leader, Technology Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte Canada. “Deloitte congratulates Layer 7 on this significant achievement.”

Layer 7’s growth is due largely to the explosion of information sharing in the Cloud and with external partners and integration of mobile devices into the enterprise. As mobile and Cloud initiatives drive enterprises to expose data and applications to the outside world, Layer 7’s industry-leading line of Gateways to secure and govern integrations that span the Internet becomes more and more critical.
