INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rook Security, a provider of global IT security solutions protecting sensitive data against dynamic, emerging threats, was named by the Indianapolis Business Journal as the second-fastest growing company in Indianapolis for 2015, and the fastest-growing technology company of the year.

Companies were eligible if revenue increased each of the three previous fiscal years, if revenue exceeded $1 million in fiscal year 2012, and if the company was founded prior to 2012.

“Bringing Rook Security from Silicon Valley to Indianapolis was the absolute catalyst for the explosive growth over the past three years,” said J.J.

The talent pool for graduating security professionals is second to none. We’re looking forward to another amazing three years of local expansion.”

Rook Security recently expanded to 55 full-time employees and 18 interns from local universities, nearly tripling its workforce in 2014. The intern program provides Indiana undergraduates with real-world experience in security, marketing, sales, and finance with one of the nation’s leading information security providers. In addition to the downtown headquarters and Security Operations Center, Rook Security also opened a second location in Carmel this year to accommodate for the company; rapid growth.
