Greensboro-Based Managed IT Security Firm Debuts in Annual 'Fast 50' Listing

GREENSBORO, NC--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - Secure Designs, Inc. (, a managed information technology security solutions company, has been named one of the Triad's 50 fastest-growing, privately held companies. This is Secure Designs' first appearance in the list, recognizing the firm's strong growth and close to 100% ramp in revenues over the past three years.

The Triad Business Journal on September 23 unveiled its annual Fast 50 ranking of the 12 county Triad area's 2011 Fast 50 companies. The award, hosted in concert with presenting sponsors Smith Leonard PLLC, an accounting firm, and Wells Fargo, was presented at an event held at N.C. A&T State University's Alumni Event Center.

"We are excited to be numbered among the Fast 50 for the first time," said Larry Cecchini, president and CEO at Secure Designs. "We now aspire to stay in this elite group and move up in the top 50 rankings every year."

Secure Designs provides managed security products and services to companies throughout the U.S., specializing in delivering advanced, easily managed and affordable solutions to the small to mid-size business segment. The company manages thousands of firewalls in 35 U.S. states and five countries internationally, and continually introduces new technologies to enhance its offerings.

The company's move into accelerated growth has been recognized by a number of influential industry organizations. This year, Secure Designs was also ranked among the 2011 Inc. 500|5000 in recognition of their three-year sales ramp of over 200%. In 2010, the company was ranked among America's most innovative managed IT services providers by CRN Magazine. A SonicWALL Gold Medallion partner, Secure Designs is also a leader in the development of breakthrough Master Managed Security Services Provider initiatives to other technology providers.

Cecchini attributes their growth to a number of key business strategies: value innovations within existing and new partnerships; continual expansion and improvement of services; a laser focus on growth opportunities where ever they may be; and, above all, a highly efficient service delivery model.

"It's difficult to create a scalable, economical and profitable model in working with small businesses, but we feel we have done something unique," said Cecchini. "We have tremendous technical resources, a highly skilled team and an unparalleled suite of proprietary and industry-leading technologies. These allow us to provide Fortune 500-level Internet security to the 'Fortune 5 Million,' the smaller companies that need the same level of protection but don't have the deep pockets of larger enterprises. We have not even scratched the surface of what's possible."
