Reston, VA  — Evolver LLC, a leading force in cybersecurity and IT transformation solutions, has been announced as one of the distinguished honorees among the 2023 NVTC Tech100, recognized for their pioneering contributions to the technology landscape. The Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC), a prominent trade association representing the National Capital Region’s technology community, unveiled this year’s Tech100, honoring forward-thinking companies and top executives propelling innovation and economic growth in the region.

Each year, NVTC acknowledges top-tier cyber companies, government contractors, and technological pioneers driving the region’s progress. Evolver’s tireless pursuit of innovation and groundbreaking contributions to the realm of IT and cyber solutions have propelled it onto this distinguished list.  Alongside Evolver’s recognition, CEO Mike Santelli of CSS, Evolver’s parent company, has been named a Tech100 executive for his exemplary leadership and strategic vision in driving technological advancements.

“Cultivating innovation isn’t just about embracing new technology; it’s about fostering a culture that encourages curiosity, collaboration, and fearlessness in exploring uncharted territories,” Mike Santelli said following his inclusion in the NVTC Tech100. “These honors are a reflection of our entire organization’s collective commitment to pushing boundaries and shaping a future where technology serves as a catalyst for positive change.”

The Tech100 announcement comes in the wake of NVTC’s recognition of Evolver as a top Cyber50 company in the region. Evolver’s commitment to fortifying cyber defenses has merited recognition when applying the award’s stringent criteria. The nominations were evaluated by a panel of independent judges, and Evolver’s commendation underscores its unwavering commitment to propelling cybersecurity technology forward and safeguarding the nation, communities, and workplaces.

“Congratulations to Evolver, Mike Santelli, and all of this year’s Cyber50 and Tech100 honorees — a cross-section of innovators from the tech sectors of cyber, cloud, AI, software development, data centers, government IT and commercial tech,” said Jennifer Taylor, NVTC president and CEO. “I am so inspired by the positive impact these honorees have on the technology field. Our region continues to be one of the nation’s leading tech hubs – and with the exponential growth of responsible and trustworthy AI, our future is brighter than ever.”
