Adaptiva Selected as a Winner of 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Global

SEATTLE, Dec. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adaptiva, a provider of IT systems management solutions, has been selected as a Red Herring 2012 Top 100 Global award recipient, a prestigious recognition honoring the year's most audacious and far reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe.

A Microsoft Gold Partner, Adaptiva extends the capabilities of Microsoft's System Center Configuration Manager by simplifying IT management by eliminating server infrastructure in distributed enterprise environments. With complete visibility into performance and control of client management processes, Adaptiva replaces monolithic enterprise applications with a fluid combination of self-tuning, self-configuring and self-deploying components with a location aware, bandwidth sensitive, peer-to-peer network stack that can move massive amounts of data anytime, anywhere.

"With the IT industry transforming like never before, it is imperative that enterprises are able to adapt to the changing tools and outside influences that are now shaping the business technology landscape," said Todd Floyd, vice president of sales and operations at Adaptiva. "Through recent recognition from industry leaders like Golden Bridge and now Red Herring, we're continuing to grow awareness of our IT solutions suite, and anticipate expansive growth in 2013."

Red Herring's Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube and eBay would change the way we live and work.

"We congratulate the Adaptiva team on this award," said Andrew Conway, director, Enterprise Client Management, Microsoft. "We have a long-standing relationship with Adaptiva, and this award is a testament to Adaptiva's innovation in today's ever-changing business technology landscape."

Red Herring's 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 record 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.

"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 Global to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Adaptiva embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Adaptiva should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been."
