Herndon, Va. – April 19, 2021 – Expel, the managed detection and response (MDR) provider that’s committed to making great security as accessible as the internet, was named by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE as one of the Best Workplaces in Technology™ 2021. Expel ranks #2 among the small and medium-sized companies on the list.

According to Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE, “To determine the 2021 Fortune’s Best Workplaces in Technology, Great Place to Work® analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing nearly 122,000 employees working in the tech industry in the United States.”

“As we come out of the quagmire that was 2020, our ‘we take care of our people first’ mantra here at Expel is more important than ever,” said Yanek Korff, cofounder and Chief Operating Officer of Expel. “It’s rewarding to be positioned as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Managed Detection And Response, Q1 2021 as we were a few weeks ago — but what’s really rewarding and gives me purpose is creating space for people to do what they love. Being recognized that we’re having some success here means so much.”
