Herndon, Va. – July 21, 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 to the 100 Best Small and Medium Workplaces for Millennials list.

According to Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE, “To determine millennials’ workplace preferences, Great Place to Work analyzed feedback representing more than 5.3 million U.S. employees.”

“At Expel, we use a different term to refer to our Millennial employees: people,” said Yanek Korff, chief operating officer at Expel. “My hope is that more companies treat employees like individuals. But if you’d like the perspective of others whom the outside world might label as “millennials,” keep reading. Their opinions matter more than mine.”

“I think there are three attributes that make Expel an exceptional workplace,” said Brijesh Kundu, senior product manager at Expel. “First, leadership shows trust in employees to find their own ways to reach objectives. Second, our employee experience team (HR) designs programs based on employee feedback, often seeking anonymous feedback in an effort to gather candid opinions. Finally, diversity and inclusion is a value that is both cherished and promoted at every level of the company through open and honest communication.”

“Expel is that rare company where you can join and immediately be energized, build great relationships and truly see your personal path to growth … all while you’re onboarding, and even in the middle of a pandemic,” said Libby Fiumara, talent program manager at Expel. “Something else that’s so unique about Expel is how we support our people in taking time off. And I’m not talking just about vacation days — Expel regularly encourages its people to take time to recharge, and we even plan a quarterly Restorative Day at the company where we host a series of non-work related workshops on topics ranging from baking to meditation that employees have the option of attending. It feels like a weight has been lifted since I joined, knowing that I am supported and encouraged to put my own well-being first.”

Expel offers a security operations center (SOC) as a service that gives customers 24×7 MDR for cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments. Customers get more value out of the security tools they already own because Expel’s “BYO tech” approach has 50+ native integrations with the most commonly used endpoint, network, SIEM tools, cloud services and SaaS applications. Expel connects to customer tech through APIs, which means customers can install and activate the service remotely in a matter of hours so internal teams can focus on the initiatives most important to their business.
