On Wednesday, global accounting and consulting firm Deloitte unveiled its latest ranking of the 2020 Technology Fast 500 and Boston companies were well represented among some of North America’s fastest-growing tech companies.

The 26th annual list includes companies chosen based on their fiscal year revenue growth between the years 2016 and 2019. The companies are ranked based on their percentage growth rate. Overall, the companies included in the ranking reached revenue growth ranging from 175 percent to 106,508 percent over three years. The median growth rate was 450 percent.

In addition to tech companies, companies in the media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy technology sectors were also included in the ranking. Leading the way overall was Pasadena-based pharmaceutical company Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals.

All told, 36 companies made the list from Massachusetts, almost all of them based in Greater Boston. This marks an increase from last year’s ranking, when 31 Massachusetts companies made the cut. While the region is dominated by the life sciences, a number of tech companies outside of that sector also shot near the top of the list this year.

At the top of the list for the Boston region was Transmit Security, which ranked fifth overall with its massive 45,688 percent revenue growth over the three-year period.
