DefenseStorm is pleased to announce they have been selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America award winner. The award celebrates 100 of the top startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
“Presenting on behalf of DefenseStorm as a finalist afforded me the unique opportunity to learn about major technological advances in cybersecurity, healthcare, SaaS and marketing. The caliber of companies that presented at the event was top notch. I am proud and honored that DefenseStorm was chosen to be a winner amongst so many inspiring companies and take home a Red Herring Top 100 award,” said Rani Khan, Director of Marketing. “I credit our win to the disruptive nature of our technology – we have developed proprietary technology that tackles this problem in a unique way, which is why financial institutions and tech companies are clamoring for our product,” continued Khan.
Red Herring Top 100 America selected the winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies across the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on the region’s most promising and outstanding entrepreneurs and companies. Past Red Herring up-and-comers have included Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize how these companies would change the way we live and work.
“In 2016, selecting the top achievers was extremely difficult,” said Alex Vieux, Publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The variety, depth, disruption and traction we saw from the early stage companies to those with significant scale made it one of the toughest vintages to judge. The North America winners are representative of the amazing ecosystem that never ceases to astound, with new and experienced entrepreneurs continuing to push the barriers of innovation. As one of the winners, DefenseStorm should be proud of its accomplishment under such strong competition,” continued Vieux.
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria; such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and market penetration. This assessment of potential is then complemented by a review of the track record 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 in North America.
