Avanan Named a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award Recipient

NEW YORK, June 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avanan, the cloud security platform, today announced that it has been distinguished as one of the leading private companies in North America with its selection by Red Herring to its elite Top 100 North America tech startups ranking.

The honor recognizes the Avanan Cloud Security Platform’s entirely new approach to the problem of cloud security. With a single click, enterprises can protect Amazon AWS, Box, Google, Office 365, or any other SaaS/IaaS, using “cloudified” versions of the world’s strongest security technology from more than 60 leading vendors such as Check Point, Symantec, McAfee, Palo Alto Networks, Sophos and Kaspersky.

“The achievements of past Red Herring Award winners is proof of the quality of the selection process, and we are proud to join their ranks and receive this prestigious recognition of our disruptive approach to cloud security,” said Gil Friedrich, Avanan founder and CEO.

The Red Herring Top 100 Awards are widely recognized as one of the industry’s most prestigious awards, selecting winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the U.S. and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“In 2016, selecting the top achievers was extremely difficult,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The variety, depth, disruption and traction we saw from the early stage companies to those with significant scale made it one of the toughest vintages to judge. The North America winners are representative of the amazing ecosystem that never ceases to astound, with new and experienced entrepreneurs continuing to push the barriers of innovation. As one of the winners, Avanan should be proud of its accomplishment under such strong competition.”

Last month, Avanan announced it raised $14.9 million in Series A financing. Avanan has also been named a 2016 Gartner Cool Vendor and one of CRN’s 20 Coolest Cloud Security Vendors of 2016.
