BluVector Selected as a 2017 Red Herring Top 100 Global
Next Generation Network Intrusion Detection Company Ranks Among Leaders in North American, Europe and Asia
Arlington, Va.—November 20, 2017— BluVector, a leader in next generation network intrusion detection, today announced it has been selected as a winner of Red Herring’s Top 100 Global. This distinction comes on the heels of the company’s selection to the Top 100 in North America. Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs across their respective industries from North America, Europe, and Asia. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“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 BluVector embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. BluVector should be proud of its accomplishment.”
BluVector is transforming the way organizations protect critical data and infrastructure from the most sophisticated and fast-moving cyber threats. Leveraging market-leading machine learning technologies, BluVector’s fileless detection capability radically accelerates the process of spotting and assessing the new advanced threats – including ransomware – that evade typical defenses.
“Being selected as a Red Herring Top 100 Global Winner is an extreme honor,” said Kris Lovejoy, CEO of BluVector. “The recognition reflects our commitment to building a technology that helps organizations detect and neutralize today’s toughest and most evasive cyber threats. Customers know they can trust BluVector to protect their most sensitive assets 80 percent more quickly and with more efficacy and precision than with traditional approaches.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is 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.
