Companies were judged by industry experts, insiders and journalists on a wide variety of criteria including financial performance, innovation, business strategy and market penetration. Winners ran the gamut of verticals, from fintech and marketing to security, IoT and many more.

Red Herring’s editors have been evaluating the world’s startups and tech companies for over two decades. It gives them the ability to see through the industry’s hype, to pick firms that will continue on a trajectory to success. Brands such as Alibaba, Google, Kakao, Skype, Spotify, Twitter and YouTube have all been singled out in Red Herring’s storied history.

ShieldX was selected by the Red Herring editorial team for this honor from a pool of over 1200 North American companies because of its innovative approach to cloud security. Recognition from Red Herring is the latest accolade ShieldX has received in recent months of momentum and milestones and follows the company’s selection by Enterprise Management Associates as a “Vendor to Watch”, being named as an RSA Innovation Sandbox finalist and a strategic round of Series B funding from marquee investors including Ashar Aziz, Dimension Data and Symantec Ventures, Aspect Ventures, Bain Capital Ventures and FireEye.

“2018’s crop of Top 100 winners has been among our most intriguing yet,” said Vieux. “North America has led the way in tech for so many years, and to see such unique, pioneering entrepreneurs and companies here in California, which is in many ways the heartland of the industry, has been a thrilling experience. What has excited me most is to see so many people forging niches in high-tech and cutting-edge sectors,” added Vieux. “Some of the technical wizardry and first-rate business models on show here at the conference has been fantastic to learn about. We believe ShieldX embodies the drive, skill and passion on which tech thrives. ShieldX should be proud of its achievement: the competition was incredibly strong.”

"It is an honor to join a long list of Red Herring 100 winners that have become successful and even household names in some cases,” said Dr. Ratinder Ahuja, ShieldX founder and CEO. " ShieldX is reinventing security to meet market-driven requirements for solutions that economically scale and secure modern cloud and virtualized data centers against new cloud-based cyber threats, such as crypto-jacking, cross workload, cross cloud and more.”

Following ShieldX’s Top 100 win it is invited to showcase itself at the Top 100 Global event in October. Red Herring is dedicated to support ShieldX’s continued path to success and innovation.
