PacketMotion™, the leading provider of User Activity Management (UAM) solutions, today announced that it has won the 2010 Red Herring Global 100 award, which recognizes the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia for innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring’s Global 100 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 Google, Skype, Netscape, Salesforce.com, YouTube, eBay, and many others would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the best out of the previous three years was by no means a small feat, ” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,200 potential companies to 200 finalists. Trying to get it down to 100 companies was a task upon itself. PacketMotion should be extremely proud of its achievement – the competition was difficult.”
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 startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list an invaluable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the greatest business opportunities from around the world.
PacketMotion delivers the industry’s leading UAM solution, PacketSentry, which is designed for unified data center security and audit in traditional, virtual and cloud environments – monitoring, controlling and logging all network activity. Its unique architecture with no agents or in-line appliances reduces both deployment effort and risk to production systems. With PacketSentry, organizations have a single solution for efficient internal compliance and audit controls, and real-time policy enforcement to best protect the internal network.
“Red Herring is known for identifying the industry’s leaders and recognizing innovative products that meet enterprise needs in differentiated ways, such as PacketMotion’s PacketSentry solution, ” said Paul Smith, PacketMotion Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “This recognition is one of a growing list of honors the company has received, and is a great way to start off what we believe will be a very promising 2011 for the company.”
PacketMotion’s User Activity Management (UAM) solution provides unified data center security and audit in traditional, virtual and cloud environments. PacketMotion’s solution enables mid- to large-sized enterprises to simplify and lower the cost of meeting their compliance and audit requirements (PCI DSS, SOX, HIPAA, etc.) while delivering security functionality such as the ability to immediately stop user behavior that violates internal policies. PacketMotion (packetmotion.com) combines patent-pending software with powerful appliances to monitor individual user activity at the application level. The PacketSentry appliance operates out of band with no impact on network performance, and installs in less than one day, typically reducing compliance-related capital and operating costs by as much as 80 percent compared to a suite of siloed tools.
