Avecto Selected as 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Europe Winner
Manchester (UK) and Boston (USA)
Avecto, the leader in Windows privilege management, announced
today they are winners of Red Herring's Top 100 Europe award, a
prestigious award that recognises the top 100 private technology
companies from the European business region.
Red Herring's Top 100 Europe 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, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we
live and work.
"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 Europe to the
Top 100 Winners. We believe Avecto embodies the vision, drive and
innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture.
Avecto should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition
was the strongest it has ever been."
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the 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
start-ups 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 in Europe.
"Avecto's selection as a Red Herring 100 winner further
substantiates our commitment and ability to drive innovation across
all aspects of our business. We are building a strong and
sustainable organization based on category leadership in the field
of Windows privilege management," said Tony Bolland CEO at
Avecto. "Our aim which is to enable organizations around the
world to lower operating costs, improve system security and achieve
complaince, continues to fuel our global growth."
Winners for the 2012 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award
were selected based upon their technological innovation, management
strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and
Avecto is the leader in Windows privilege management, helping
organizations to deploy secure and compliant desktops and servers.
