Boston Business Journal Names NETSCOUT Among The Most Charitable Companies in Massachusetts

NETSCOUT honored with corporate charitable contributor recognition for tenth year in a row

WESTFORD, Mass. – September 6, 2023 -- The Boston Business Journal (BBJ) has named NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC. (NASDAQ: NTCT), a leading provider of performance management, cybersecurity, and DDoS protection solutions, an honoree in its annual 2023 Corporate Citizenship Awards, a recognition of the region's top corporate charitable contributors. It is the tenth year in a row that NETSCOUT has been named to the list.

The Boston Business Journal annually publishes this list to showcase companies that promote and prioritize giving back to their communities.

Through NETSCOUT’s global Heart of Giving programs, employees are empowered to support their favorite causes and plan meaningful efforts in their communities with matching gifts, and individual and team volunteer grants. In addition, NETSCOUT provides corporate donations and sponsorships to support local community organizations and digital equity and inclusion initiatives.

“It is with honor that we present our list of the Top Charitable Contributors in Massachusetts – companies who gave $100,000 or more to Mass.-based in charities in 2022. Collectively, they gave $423 million in cash contributions – a true example of the business community coming together to help those in need. We are proud to celebrate these organizations who give both money and time to make Boston a stronger and better place for all,” said Boston Business Journal Market President and Publisher Carolyn Jones.

This year, 100 companies qualified for the distinction by reporting at least $100,000 in cash contributions to Massachusetts-based charities last year. Honorees include companies from such industry sectors as financial and professional services, health care, technology, retail, and professional sports. 

NETSCOUT will be honored at the BBJ’s 18th Annual Corporate Citizenship Awards on Thursday, September 7th at the Seaport Hotel (1 Seaport Lane, Boston) from 5:30pm – 8:30pm. The evening will be filled with networking, making connections, and recognizing all the Charitable Contributors, the Alan B.
