Ziften Selected as a Red Herring Top 100 Global Award Winner
Company was the Only Endpoint Detection and Response Provider to Receive Award
AUSTIN, Texas – December 1, 2015 – Ziften today announced that the company has won a Red Herring Top 100 Global award. The annual awards highlight the most exciting startups from Asia, Europe, and the Americas, and celebrate these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries. Ziften was selected for its leading, continuous endpoint visibility solution that delivers unprecedented insight and enables organizations to efficiently prevent security exposures and respond to advanced threats. Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Previous winners include Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay.
“When a cyber attack occurs, security teams have a limited window of opportunity to investigate and respond before it’s too late,” said Charles Leaver, CEO, Ziften. “Ziften provides the visibility and critical information and analysis needed to view, inspect and respond to threats and to make better decisions, faster. Our inclusion in the Red Herring Top 100 Global is testament to the ongoing dedication of our staff and the daily value we bring to our customers.”
Ziften was the only Endpoint Detection and Response provider to earn a Red Herring Top 100 Global award. Red Herring’s editorial staff conducted a stringent judging process, evaluating companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential was complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Ziften embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Ziften should be proud of its accomplishment.”
Ziften’s Red Herring award is the latest recognition for the company in 2015. Computer Technology Review selected the company as a Most Valuable Product (MVP) award winner in the Security category, CIO Review named Ziften to its “20 Most Promising RSA Security Solution Providers” list, and Ziften was also listed as the top Endpoint Threat Detection vendor on Cybersecurity 500, a directory of the hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies to watch in 2015 according to Cybersecurity Ventures.
