DigiCert Selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner

Annual List Honors North America's Fast-Growing, Successful Private Technology Companies

LEHI, UT--(Marketwired - May 20, 2014) - DigiCert, Inc., a leading global Certificate Authority and provider of trusted identity and authentication services, has been named to the Red Herring Top 100 North America, a prestigious list recognizing the continent's most successful private technology companies. Past recipients include Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Marin Software, Palo Alto Networks and eBay. 

In its 11th year of business, DigiCert continues to earn recognition for its rapid growth and market leadership, which is fueled by the company's foundational values of innovation and customer service. Earning its status as one of the most influential online trust providers in the market, DigiCert remains true to its entrepreneurial roots and vision of helping its customers deploy trust services more simply, more efficiently and more securely. DigiCert customers include many of the world's largest enterprises and most cutting-edge technology companies.

"DigiCert is honored to be listed among the current and past recipients of this award, which include many of the technology industry's most notable companies," said DigiCert CEO Nicholas Hales. "We are humbled by our success and we are grateful for our partnership with our customers, whose support is the reason why we are in this position. As we grow rapidly, expanding our authentication and encryption services to emerging markets, we continue to invest in leading the market toward better practices through innovation, advancing industry standards, and a forward-looking vision that addresses current and future market demands."

Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising privately held technology firms since 1995. Top 100 companies are evaluated individually among a pool of thousands of candidates based across North America, and are reviewed against several criteria, including the company's addressable market size, technological innovation and intellectual property, business model, financial performance, management quality, customer footprint and market penetration. This past week, hundreds of finalists presented their companies to a panel of distinguished investment bankers and venture capitalists to be judged on their market relevance, growth and prospects.

"In 2014, selecting the top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the top 100 winners. We believe DigiCert embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. DigiCert should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."

Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
