Herndon, Va. — October 21, 2020 — Expel*, the leader in making customers smile when they hear the word “security,” was named by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE as one of the Best Medium Workplaces. The company was named to the list in 2019 as well.
To determine the 2020 Best Small Workplaces list and the 2020 Best Medium Workplaces list, Great Place to Work® analyzed confidential survey feedback representing more than 189,000 employees working in small- and medium-sized businesses in the United States. Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™.
“To say 2020 hasn’t panned out the way we’d planned would be an understatement,” said Yanek Korff, Chief Operating Officer at Expel. “Fortunately, ‘take care of our people first’ is a principle we created the day we started Expel. From the earliest Blursday through the ongoing Schoolocalypse, our outstanding Employee Experience team helped working parents find a new balance, sent out surprise boxes of snacks, and ramped up communication and transparency to help ensure we’re doing everything we can to support the wellbeing of our people.”
Expel’s vision is to make great security as accessible as the internet. The company offers a security operations center (SOC) as a service that gives customers 24×7 managed detection and response (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 40+ 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.
