Huntsville, AL – Summit 7 Systems (Summit 7), an industry-leading provider of security and compliance solutions and services for the Defense Industrial Base, has been listed in the Inc. 5000 for the seventh time and the third consecutive year. This coveted award is a result of the 929% growth of Summit 7, which is among an elite group of companies to have received the honor five times or more, making up less than 4% of businesses on the Inc. 5000. 

Summit 7 ranks number 673 on this year's list, a significant climb from 2021’s ranking of 697.

Scott Edwards, CEO of Summit 7, stated “We have invested in significant resources to not only expand our product portfolio, but we've also focused on growing the skillsets of Summit 7 employees. Our Managed Services Team has specifically been focusing on upgrading our managed services and managed security services offerings to continue to provide advanced security to the Defense Industrial Base, further protecting the critical data of the United States.”

The 2022 MSUS Compliance Partner of the Year award recognizes partners who have proven that they fully embrace the power of Microsoft’s Compliance product portfolio enabling the development of solutions that deliver on long-term customer success.
