Praetorian Awarded Inc’s Best Places to Work for 2nd Year in a Row

Austin-based Company Recognized for Excellence in Creating an Exceptional Workplace and Company Culture

AUSTIN, Texas, May 9, 2023–Praetorian, a leading offensive security company, today announced that it was named to Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces list for 2023. This year’s Best Workplaces list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether teams are operating in person or remotely.

“This award is particularly meaningful  to our leadership team, given that it’s based entirely on employee feedback.,” said Nathan Sportsman, CEO of Praetorian. “Our commitment to creating an impact as large as craters—through challenging work, talent density, and amazing culture—serves as our north star in attracting and retaining the best people. I am incredibly proud of this team and this well-deserved recognition.”

Praetorian is the developer of Chariot, the cybersecurity industry’s first total attack lifecycle solution featuring an intelligent attack surface management (ASM) platform and offensive security managed service. Using automation and artificial intelligence (AI), the Chariot platform identifies attack surface exposure points using both outside-in (adversarial) and inside-out (cloud-integration) knowledge to prioritize real risk. Praetorian’s “red team” experts then extend the technology by emulating the latest attack techniques to validate compromise paths and integrate seamlessly into customer enterprise security teams to eliminate false positives and speed risk mitigation. The combination of Praetorian’s security engineering and expertise enables overburdened security teams facing talent shortages and rapidly changing internet-based environments to identify, attack, detect and prevent real compromises within minutes.

Praetorian is among 591 other honorees who were selected out of thousands of submissions based on the quality of employee responses to an independent survey conducted by Quantum Workplace. Submissions were evaluated across a wide variety of topics, including company culture, management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth.

The honorees selected this year best-represented dedication to “employers setting the new standards for what it means to have a great company culture.,” according to Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture.

The following are some of the anonymous reviews collected by the Inc. Best Workplaces administered employee survey:

“The organization is designed in such a way that I feel every employee is empowered to do what they are best at. There is an absence of micromanagement while the company still feels like it’s following an explicit vision rather than scattering off in random unconnected directions. The commitment to radical transparency ensures that everyone is on the same page in terms of where the company is at and keeps employee trust high.

“I truly love working at this company. Managers and executives at Praetorian do an excellent job showing how much they care about the well-being of the people that work here. I consistently feel personal satisfaction for the work that I get to do here; not only is it intellectually engaging but I can see the impact it has on our customers.”
