BOSTON, Mass. - June 21, 2011 - Core Security Technologies®, the leading provider of enterprise security test and measurement solutions, has been selected as a winner of the 2011 Red Herring Top 100 North America award that honors the most innovative and privately-held technology companies. This year’s winners were selected based upon technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition and financial health.

“This distinction from the editorial team at Red Herring affirms our continued success in delivering proven solutions to customers worldwide that provide actionable security intelligence to pinpoint exposure to real-world attacks across the enterprise - before they happen,” said Mark Hatton, CEO of Core Security. “What has been made perfectly clear by recent high-profile breaches is that they are all both predictable and preventable – and yet another wake-up call to organizations to have an actionable risk path to get ahead of the attackers.”

This recognition is the latest in a year of several noteworthy milestones for Core Security including:

  • The launch of CORE INSIGHT™ Enterprise security test and measurement platform that provides continuous, automated testing to verify security controls and demonstrate real exposures to critical IT assets
  • The introduction of Core CloudInspect® cloud security testing solution that delivers on-demand, real-world intelligence for Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments

 “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 to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Core Security embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful company.”
