For the Second Time, Panzura Makes the Inc. 5000,
at No. 2075 in 2023, With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 271 Percent

NEW YORK, August 15, 2023 – Inc. revealed today that Panzura ranks No. 2075 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. 

“As if one year on the Inc. 5000 list wasn’t enough, we’ve had another incredible year,” said Jill Stelfox, CEO at Panzura. “Last year, we proved the value of our team and technology, breaking into the top 5000 fastest-growing private companies just two short years after Panzura’s re-founding. This year, we’ve secured our place as a market leader in the protection and management of data for enterprises around the world.”

“Few industries have experienced such a dramatic evolution in recent years as data management,” Jill continued. “The hybrid, multi-cloud environment holds a great deal of potential for business, but challenges such as ransomware, access control, and the storage of increasing volumes of unstructured data have become critical pain points for enterprises. Panzura gives enterprises the visibility and security they need to embrace the hybrid, multi-cloud environment with control and confidence.”

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years. 

For complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, location, and other criteria, go to The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, available on newsstands beginning Tuesday, August 23. 

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

"Being named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America for the second year running is an honor,” Jill comments. “Our primary focus has always been helping enterprises seize control of their data through efficient, accessible, and secure data management solutions. Being honored for doing what we love while helping our customers move the needle sure feels good!”

Panzura is the market leader in hybrid multi-cloud data management for the enterprise. As a true cloud data management platform, CTOs choose Panzura's software to protect their data from ransomware and other cyber threats through immutable storage and make it easier to manage at scale through the use of AI/ML data analytics. Following the company's re-founding in 2020, it has undergone a cultural shift and redefined its core values, bringing seven new products to market. Within three years, it has achieved a record-breaking rise in annual recurring revenue of 271% and is growing at four times the rate of its nearest competitors.
