A raft of channel players have been ranked as Australia’s fastest growing technology companies for 2023.
The quartet appeared in Deloitte Technology Fast 50, which ranks the nation’s top 50 public and private tech companies based on percentage revenue growth between 2021 to 2023.
Perth-based SD-WAN software company ActivePort was the channel’s biggest success story, coming in third place with 4,572 per cent growth in the three years.
The publicly listed company provides software defined networking (SDN) solutions aimed at the telecommunications and IT industries.
Following closely behind, Melbourne business-technology solutions and services company Centelon came in sixth place with 2,338 per cent growth.
Peloton Cyber Security, an end-to-end security services provider, came in ninth place with 502.3 per cent growth.

“Despite a tumultuous global landscape marked by high inflation and capital constraints, our top 50 list has defied expectations, matching the growth of 2022,” Deloitte said in the report.
Noting the 50s’ shifting business models and restructuring efforts, Deloitte said these businesses had made sustainable, profitable growth and a “solid foundation for long-term success”.
“This fast-tracked evolution is forcing businesses to become strategic, efficient and focused; they’re having to do more with less and maximise productivity through developing proprietary tech, purchasing solutions, borrowing resources or sharing and embracing open-source codes and products,” the report said.
