Data Privacy and Security Company Expands Team and Presence in Key Markets

FairWarning Continues to Drive Record Growth and Recognition

Clearwater, Fla. April 23, 2019 – Nearly one year after it closed one of the largest private equity investments in the Tampa Bay area, FairWarning is poised to add more than 50 employees to its roster in 2019, building on the 40+ team members added in 2018. Thanks in part to the $60 million equity investment from Mainsail Partners, FairWarning has generated growth while maintaining an engaging and meaningful work atmosphere, as evidenced by its recognition as one of the area’s Top Workplaces for the seventh year in a row.

FairWarning introduced several new products and service offerings in 2018 that aim to protect mission-critical business data stored in cloud and other applications for healthcare, financial services and other highly regulated industries. These innovations contributed to historically significant growth, particularly in FairWarning’s cloud security business. And last quarter, FairWarning booked its two largest customers in the company’s history.

The company continues to gather recognition for its commitment to customer-centric product development and service:

Patrick Marschall, CEO, FairWarning, said, “We’re looking forward to bringing on distinguished talent who can share our enthusiasm and expand our reach. We believe security and compliance remain top priorities for today’s businesses, but they can make a complex digital environment even more so. That’s why we made it our goal to provide privacy, compliance and security software that businesspeople in highly regulated industries find easy to use. We get a lot of satisfaction from providing innovative solutions that organizations need, and that translates into a great work environment.”
