Fast Company names AnchorFree the 13th “most innovative company” in the world

AnchorFree, the company behind Hotspot Shield, has just been ranked as the 13th most innovative company in the world, according to Fast Company’s 2019 list, and took the #1 spot as the most innovative security company.

Our placement came in part due to the 100 million new users we saw in 2018, up from 70 million in 2017.

AnchorFree even surpassed Apple, which came in 17th. Peloton, the stationary bike maker that developed virtual spin classes from the comfort of home, landed just behind AnchorFree in 14th.
