Red Herring’s Top 100 List Recognizes the Most Innovative Private Companies and Entrepreneurs Across North America, Europe and Asia
San Jose, CA – December 13, 2011 – ThreatMetrix™, a leading provider of integrated cybersecurity solutions, announced today that it has been named a Red Herring 100 Global company.
The Red Herring Global list selects the best privately held companies around the world, and has become an authority in identifying promising new companies. Previously featured companies include Google, Skype, Baidu, Salesforce.com, YouTube, eBay and others. Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated this year’s companies on quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration.
“Choosing the best out of the previous two years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,100 potential companies to 100 winners. It was an extremely difficult process. ThreatMetrix should be extremely proud of its achievement; the competition for the Top 100 was fierce. The Top 100 Global are truly the best of the best.”
ThreatMetrix was also awarded the Red Herring Top 100 North America accolade earlier this year.
“We’re extremely proud to be recognized by Red Herring as among the best technology companies globally,” said Reed Taussig, president and CEO, ThreatMetrix. “Winning the Red Herring Global award further validates ThreatMetrix’s value proposition in the marketplace as a leading provider of online fraud prevention and cybersecurity solutions.”
