Lastline Selected to Red Herring Top 100 Global for 2018
Honor recognizes Lastline as leading provider of AI-powered network security software
REDWOOD CITY, CA, November 7, 2018 – Lastline®, the leader in AI-powered network security, today announced that it has been named to the Red Herring Top 100 Global list of leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia. After being included on the Red Herring 100 North America in 2017, this is recognition of Lastline’s innovation and success on a global stage. The company is one of only seven US-based security companies to be honored.
The Red Herring Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. This recognition celebrates these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
“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 Lastline embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Lastline should be proud of its accomplishment.”
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.
“We are indeed honored to be included with such an impressive list of companies,” commented Bert Rankin, Lastline Chief Marketing Officer. “With this award, Red Herring has recognized the strength of Lastline’s innovative AI-powered network security solutions and the momentum we have generated in the marketplace. As cybercriminals launch increasingly sophisticated attacks we’ve seen companies display an added urgency to deploy our software before a costly and damaging data breach occurs.”
