SAN FRANCISCO – June 21, 2017 — RiskIQ, the leader in digital threat management, today announced that it has been recognized as one of the leading private companies in the Americas, as selected by Red Herring for its elite “Top 100 North American Startups” ranking.
“Organizations have made huge investments to extend their digital presence and make their offerings digitally relevant to their customers. Digital has also become the prime focus for hackers and criminals, affecting business operations, consumers and brands on a global scale. As such, enterprises need a more complete set of tools to manage cyber risks,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “RiskIQ has it. Disruptive technology and first-mover advantage that address diverse external web, social and mobile threats. The intelligence, automation and interoperability powering their platform, and the operational savings that it delivers is compelling. This explains why RiskIQ has been awarded the Top 100 North America recognition.”
Red Herring selects award recipients among more than 1,200 privately financed companies in the U.S. and Canada. Red Herring’s editorial staff determined the honorees by evaluating startup companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, and intellectual property, management quality, market strategy, and opportunity. The distinction was due in part to RiskIQ’s successful market penetration of large, leading organizations across major industries, their overall business model and outlook, as well as their inventive, platform approach to digital threat management.
