Deloitte & Touche and the Atlanta Business Chronicle have named Scientific-Atlanta as the number one highest-performing technology company in Georgia on their list of the 2002 Atlanta Technology 50 winners.

Scientific-Atlanta, which ranked third last year, is a global manufacturer of digital set-tops and cable modems, and supplier of transmission systems and support services that enable broadband providers to launch and deliver a complete range of interactive video, data and voice services to consumers. The Atlanta Technology 50, formerly known as Arthur Andersen’s Fast Tech 50, ranks the top 50 revenue producing technology companies in metro Atlanta.

Rounding out the top 15, in order, are EarthLink, Equifax, Certegy, ARRIS Group, ChoicePoint, CheckFree Corporation, Global Payments, NDCHealth Corporation and Per-Se Technologies, EMS Technologies, Solarcom Holdings, S1 Corporation, Lynk Systems and Internet Security Systems (ISS).

Tom Noonan, ISS chairman, president and chief executive officer, credits new product introductions, continued competitive wins and new strategic partners with the company’s overall success.

“This ranking reflects Internet Security Systems’ diligent focus on continued revenue growth in this challenging economic environment,” Noonan said in a statement, “and our unique position of helping protect our customers from an ever-changing spectrum of threats and securing their critical business assets.”

Of the 50 technology companies, 37 are public with more than $10 billion in revenue for 2001. Deloitte & Touche will celebrate and honor the Atlanta Technology 50 winners at this year’s Georgia Technology Forum, sponsored by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), on Oct. 23. The keynote speaker will be Terry Jones, founder of Travelocity.com.

To qualify for the Atlanta Technology 50, privately held and publicly traded companies must be headquartered in the 21-county Atlanta metropolitan area. Subsidiary companies qualify only if shares are publicly traded on a stock exchange. Fifty percent of the company’s revenues must result from the development, manufacturing, distribution and sale of a proprietary high-technology product or service, or the sale of a proprietary product or service that is delivered using high technology.

“We commend the Atlanta Technology 50 winners for continuing to thrive during the past year of uncertainty,” Bob Johnson, Deloitte & Touche lead partner of the Emerging Technology Group, said in a statement. “The contributions of this year’s Atlanta Tech 50 winners have been vital to retaining Atlanta’s stature as one of the nation’s technology hubs and we look forward to the next generation of products and services they will be providing to improve our quality of life.”
