SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 18, 2017 — Hortonworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: HDP), a leading provider of global data management solutions, today announced that it has been named by Deloitte as one of the fastest growing technology companies in North America. This recognition comes as part of the release of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 annual rankings, which include the fastest growing companies in the technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy technology sectors.
“Since our founding in 2011, we have known that achieving meaningful growth would only come through investing in our team members, building strong partnerships with our expanding customer base and maintaining an active leadership role as contributors to the Open Source community,” said Rob Bearden, CEO, Hortonworks. “Hortonworks is extremely proud of its growth and everyone here is honored to again receive this recognition from Deloitte.”

This enables organizations to get secure and trusted lineage from source to destination, regardless of type or origin.
