CHICAGO, IL – MARCH 06, 2020 – Kenna Security, the enterprise leader in risk-based vulnerability management, has been named one of Crain’s 2020 Best Places to Work in Chicago.

“This award is especially meaningful because it is the result of direct employee feedback about their experience working at Kenna,” said Lora Rodstein, vice president of human resources at Kenna Security. “Our team has built a strong culture in a competitive market. Our employees truly are our greatest assets and have driven the company’s mission of helping enterprises better manage cyber risk by giving customer teams the tools to collaborate more effectively. We are proud to employ some of the best people in the business.”

The announcement comes on the heels of a successful year. In 2019, Kenna secured a Series D funding round and welcomed a breadth of new hires in the roles of Chief Product Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, and Chief Financial Officer. In the past two years, Kenna reported over 90% revenue growth.

In partnership with Best Companies Group, Crain’s surveyed thousands of employees on the types of working conditions, benefits and corporate culture that make a company a great place to work.
