MENLO PARK, CA, Dec 04, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Silver Tail Systems, Inc., the leader in web session intelligence
and behavioral analytics, today announced it has been named a winner
for Red Herring's 2012 Top 100 Global award, a prestigious
recognition honoring the year's most audacious and far reaching
private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe.
Red Herring's Top 100 Global 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 Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube,
and eBay would change the way we live and work.
"This award validates Silver Tail's Big Data approach to gather and
analyze mass quantities of information in real time and at scale to
deepen visibility into web sessions and mobile traffic," said Timothy
Eades, chief executive officer at Silver Tail Systems. "We are
honored to be included on the 2012 list of top 100 Global winners in
the Americas and it is a testament to Silver Tail System's strategy
to leverage data analytics and adaptive risk-based controls for
broader consumer and enterprise security use cases."
The rapid evolution of malware and advanced online threats has left
growing numbers of online banking, ecommerce and government web sites
and their customers vulnerable to attack, account takeover and fraud.
Modern-day technologies such as multi-factor authentication, device
identification, log analysis and anti-malware are no longer enough,
and today's customers need better intelligence, analytics and the
ability to respond in real time to truly thwart cybercriminals.
Silver Tail Systems' big data approach to cybersecurity delivers the
behavioral analysis and visibility that organizations need to
understand what is happening before, during and after an attack, and
this award recognizes the value and potential of this technology on a
"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 Global to the Top 100
Winners. We believe Silver Tail Systems embodies the vision, drive
and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture.
Silver Tail Systems should be proud of its accomplishment, as the
competition was the strongest it has ever been."
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 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.
