SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Oct. 31, 2018 – Kenna Security, a leader in predictive cyber risk, today announced that it has been named to the Red Herring Top 100 Global, which celebrates the technology and innovation of startups in Europe, North America, and Asia.
“Being named to the Top 100 Global list is an incredible honor, and it reflects the increasing need for data-driven cybersecurity strategies,” said Karim Toubba, CEO of Kenna Security. “Enterprises and their security teams face a deluge of data sources that lack context, making it nearly impossible to effectively manage cyber risk. Kenna is helping companies transition to a risk-based approach to cybersecurity, so they can focus on the biggest threats to their organization intelligently.”
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list is well known for its history of identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs in the early stages. 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 the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Kenna Security embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Kenna Security should be proud of its accomplishment.”
Companies named to the Top 100 Global list were selected from the winners of regional Top 100 contests in Europe, North America, and Asia. Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated them 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 records 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.
