In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

Snyk has had a monumental year of growth in 2020. Following two rounds of funding the company is now valued at $2.6B with $350M of funding secured this year alone. Its annual recurring revenue grew 275% from 2018 to 2019 and is currently on track to be at about 200% this year. Snyk also grew its customer base to 600 with solid retention rates across the board, including adding notable innovators like J.P. Morgan, Salesforce, and Twilio to the roster.
Following the successful acquisition of AI company DeepCode in October, the company unveiled the industry’s first developer-first SAST (static application security testing) solution, Snyk Code, to complete its market-leading cloud native application security platform. Until recently, SAST tools have been difficult for developers to use, often taking hours or days to complete a vulnerability scan; providing high false positive rates; and requiring deep security knowledge to address the issues and fix them quickly. With Snyk Code, Snyk is re-imagining SAST in a way that empowers developers to leverage as a seamless part of their development process – enabling them to build software both fast and securely.
Since day one, Snyk’s financial success has been directly fueled by its positive company culture. With hubs across the world, the company now has over 400 global employees, with 100% employee growth this year alone. Comparably data also recently revealed Snykers to be some of the happiest, most fulfilled employees across the U.S.
