Layer 7 Technologies Ranks No. 13 Fastest-Growing IT Company on PROFIT 500 List

Company Places 81st Among Canadian Companies as Demand for API Management Tools Increases

ISLANDIA, N.Y. and VANCOUVER, British Columbia—June 26, 2013—Layer 7 Technologies, a CA Technologies company (NASDAQ: CA) and a provider of API management and mobilization tools for the open enterprise, announced it has been named to the annual PROFIT 500 list as the No. 13 fastest-growing IT company in Canada. The company was acquired by CA Technologies earlier this month.

The PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their revenue growth over the past five years. According to PROFIT magazine, publisher of the award, Layer 7’s revenue increased by 899 percent from 2007—2012, earning the company the 81st spot on the national PROFIT 500 list.

"To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Fastest-Growing Companies in Canada, the PROFIT 500 has expanded to recognize the entrepreneurial achievements of more than 500 Canadian companies," says Ian Portsmouth, editor-in‐chief of PROFIT magazine. "PROFIT is proud to showcase Canada's forward-thinking businesses and honor their talents and innovations."

As more organizations work to open data and applications to mobile developers, connect internal information assets with external cloud applications and infrastructure, and publish APIs to external developers, Layer 7 has seen increased demand for its award-winning API management tools and services.

“We are proud to be included in the PROFIT 500 list for 2013,” said Dimitri Sirota, senior vice president, Security, CA Technologies, and co-founder of Layer 7. “Organizations ranging from federal agencies, telcos, enterprises and small- and medium-sized businesses are using our API management tools to manage and secure cloud, API and mobility initiatives. This award is a credit to everyone at Layer 7 that worked tirelessly to make us a leader in API management.”

Layer 7 Technologies has been recognized by analysts as a leader in API security and management space, and is the only API Management vendor to have been named to Deloitte's Fast 500 list of fastest growing companies in both 2011 and 2012.
