NSS Labs Selected as a 2018 Red Herring Top 100 Global Winner

Company Earns Prestigious Honor for Second Consecutive Year

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NSS Labs, Inc., a global leader and trusted source for independent, fact-based cybersecurity guidance, today announced that it has been selected as a winner of the 2018 Red Herring Top 100 Global award, which recognizes the top private technology companies from North America, Europe, and Asia. This is the second consecutive year that NSS Labs has been chosen for this honor and this is the fourth award NSS Labs has received from Red Herring. Earlier this year, NSS Labs was selected as a winner of the 2018 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award and in  2017, NSS Labs earned the Red Herring Top 100 Global Award and the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. 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. 

Editorial staff evaluated 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 start-ups 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.

“NSS Labs is focused on bringing a scientific, scalable, and data-driven approach to cybersecurity,” said Gautam Aggarwal, Chief Marketing Officer at NSS Labs. “Enterprises must know where they stand in order to make informed decisions to evolve and rationalize their cyber risk programs. We are proud to be recognized by the Red Herring with Top 100 honors for two consecutive years. This achievement reinforces the importance of our endeavors to advance transparency and accountability in the cybersecurity industry.”

NSS Labs has received several awards both for the company itself and also for its Cloud Platform for Continuous Security Validation. Earlier this year, the company was selected as a 2018 BIG Awards for Business Winner in the Company of the Year category. NSS Labs was also named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing companies and to the Austin Business Journal Fast 50 list, which recognizes the 50 fastest-growing companies in the region. SC Media selected NSS Labs CEO Vikram Phatak as an honoree for its Reboot Leadership Award in the Thought Leadership category. NSS Labs’ Cloud Platform for Continuous Security Validation was selected as a Golden Bridge Awards Gold Winner in the Best Product or Service of the Year category and was also recognized as a Silver Winner by both the Network Products Guide and the Info Security Products Guide for Best Information Security Risk Management product.

“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 NSS Labs embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. NSS Labs should be proud of its accomplishment.”
