In addition, Protocom is one of only three Australian companies to have achieved this recognition for the last four years in a row.

Protocom is an award-winning global leader in password management. The Protocom SecureLogin® Password Management Suite is an integrated solution consisting of enterprise single sign-on, advanced (strong) authentication and self-service password reset. Protocom was founded in 1989, and is a privately held company that has been profitable since incorporation in 1993. Protocom is headquartered in Australia, and has offices in North America, Europe, the United Kingdom, and South Africa.
Jason Hart, Protocom CEO said, "Our significant growth is a result of the strong innovation delivered across our product range. This, together with continued development of strong partnerships for enhanced access to global markets, has enabled us to deliver cost effective security solutions that meet the needs of our customers around the world."
"One of our most successful strategies has been to focus on the elimination of the 'password pain' suffered by large enterprises today." Hart said. "Enterprises are increasingly concerned about security issues, lost employee productivity, and rising maintenance costs in the management of the users of their network", he said. "The Protocom SecureLogin® Password Management Suite eliminates these 'password pains' with little impact on network performance while fully leveraging existing corporate IT infrastructure", he said.
"We expect the growth rate achieved over the last 3 years to continue over the next 12 months."
Deloitte Growth Solutions partner, Ms Julia Bickerstaff, says the growth of Protocom has been astounding.
"Managing growth is challenging for many organisations, but Protocom has achieved exceptional growth during a downturn in the technology sector."
"With the Australian and global tech sector showing more prosperous signs than the last three years, the future is looking even brighter for Protocom."
