Lancope Selected as a 2014 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award Winner
Company continues to garner accolades for its innovative, behavioral-based network security solutions
ATLANTA, May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, has been selected by Red Herring as a Top 100 North America award winner. The award honors leading private companies from the Americas based on innovation and success in the marketplace, taking into account financial performance, technological innovation, intellectual property, management quality, business model, customer footprint and market penetration.
“Since our founding in 2000, innovation has been the cornerstone of everything we do,” said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. “We are consistently early to the market with game-changing network security techniques for best protecting our customers from ever-evolving threat vectors. This strategy has enabled us to achieve record growth, strong partnerships with some of the world’s leading technology companies, and significant industry accolades. We are honored to see our efforts recognized by an organization as prestigious and insightful as Red Herring.”
While other vendors are now just beginning to provide organizations with support for their incident response efforts, Lancope is focused on ‘continuous response,’ making sure that companies can analyze attacks along the entire attack continuum. Lancope’s StealthWatch(®) System leverages key data from existing infrastructure to provide in-depth insight into what was happening on the network before, during and after an attack to help responders understand their adversaries’ methods and better defend against future incidents.
The Red Herring Top 100 award recognizes the most promising new business models in North America. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Google would change the way we live and work.
“In 2014, selecting the top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the top 100 winners. We believe Lancope embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Lancope should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Lancope was also a Red Herring Top 100 winner in 2008. For further information on the award, go to: http://www.redherring.com/events/top-100/. Additional details on Lancope’s achievements can be found at: http://www.lancope.com/company-overview/.
