The Record by Recorded Future Named to Fast Company’s Annual List of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022


Leading Cybersecurity News Site Ranked Number Four in the Media Category

BOSTON — March 8, 2022 — The Record by Recorded Future (“The Record”), a leading cybersecurity news publication and subsidiary of Recorded Future, has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022. The Record received the ranking of number four in the Media category.

This year’s list honors businesses that are making the biggest impact on their industries and culture as a whole—ultimately thriving in today’s ever-changing world. These companies are creating the future today with some of the most inspiring accomplishments of the 21st century. In addition to the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies, 528 organizations are recognized across 52 categories.

SecurityTrails’ technology collects hundreds of data points at an internet-wide scale, correlating and normalizing to get a near real-time snapshot as well as a historical view of all assets on the internet at any given time. The resulting intelligence enables organizations to manage both critical assets and shadow infrastructure for a complete understanding of their attack surface.

“Uniquely sitting between two industries – cybersecurity and news – The Record was launched with the goal of shining a light on cybersecurity stories that often went uncovered, and our team has fearlessly reported on the latest actions of cybercriminals and state-sponsored hackers. We’re honored by this recognition of our work to break cybersecurity news, which is quickly becoming one of the most pressing political and national security issues that our world faces ” — Adam Janofsky, Editorial Director, The Record by Recorded Future

Since its launch in August 2020, The Record by Recorded Future has become a top source for cybersecurity news and has grown to an eight-person newsroom reaching hundreds of thousands of readers. It is regularly cited for its breaking news coverage, analysis, and interviews by major news publications. One of The Record’s most innovative projects has been publishing regular interviews with cybercriminals and people who lurk in the shadows of the cyber underground, surfacing insights that have resonated throughout the industry and in Washington. Most recently, the publication launched a podcast, Click Here, hosted by former NPR Investigations correspondent Dina Temple-Raston to uncover stories about the people and ideas shaping our digital world.

Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking businesses across the globe and industries. They also judged nominations received through their application process. The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

“The world’s most innovative companies play an essential role in addressing the most pressing issues facing society, whether they’re fighting climate change by spurring decarbonization efforts, ameliorating the strain on supply chains, or helping us reconnect with one another over shared passions.” — David Lidsky, Deputy Editor, Fast Company

For the second year in a row, to coincide with the issue launch, Fast Company will host its Most Innovative Companies Summit on April 26–27. The virtual, multiday summit celebrates the Most Innovative Companies in business, and provides an early look at major business trends and an inside look at what it takes to innovate in 2022. Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2022) is available online here, as well as in-app form via iTunes, and on newsstands beginning March 15. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
