Amsterdam, Netherlands – April 20, 2015 Red Herring announced its Red Herring Europe award winners today, recognizing Europe's leading private companies across their respective industries.
Red Herring's Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies. Red Herring's 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.
Selecting startups that show the most potential for disruption and growth is never easy, "We looked at hundreds and hundreds of candidates from all across the continent, and after much thought and debate, narrowed the list down to the Top 100 Winners. Each year, the competition gets tougher but we believe ERPScan demonstrates the vision, drive and innovation that define a Red Herring Top 100.
– said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.
We are proud to be selected for this award. Many a time our company proved the importance of our mission – to deliver products and services to analyze mission-critical systems and secure them from cyberattacks and internal fraud. In the last 5 years, we have built a large partner network working in 20+ countries and got 30+ different awards including SC Magazine and CRN. Our products and services have helped more than 50 customers. Our research team were proud to be invited as speakers to 60+ technical conferences such as BlackHat. We continue our innovative research and development by recently adding the first and only vulnerability management tool for Oracle PeopleSoft to our portfolio. But what's more important, we have built a new market niche: ERP/SAP Security, and this niche is growing fast now.
- said Alexander Polyakov, CTO and Co-Founder of ERPScan.
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar startups in the same verticals, 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 in Europe.
