AUSTIN, Texas, June 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NSS Labs, Inc., a global leader and trusted source for independent, fact-based cybersecurity guidance, today announced that it has been selected as a winner of the 2018 Red Herring Top 100 North America award, which recognizes the most exciting and innovative private technology companies in the region. This is the second consecutive year that NSS Labs has been chosen for this honor and the award is the third NSS Labs has received from Red Herring.

“2018 has proven to be a pivotal year both for NSS Labs and for the cybersecurity industry,” said Gautam Aggarwal, CMO and Head of Products for NSS Labs. “In the face of growing threats, enterprises need to know where they stand in order to make informed decisions to evolve and rationalize their cyber risk programs. We are honored to be recognized on the merits of our innovation and execution for the second consecutive year. This achievement underscores the importance of our endeavors to elevate cyber risk programs to become more scientific and deliver relevant KPIs for key stakeholders in the enterprise.”

NSS Labs has received several awards both for the company itself as well as for its Cloud Platform for Continuous Security Validation. Earlier this year, the InfoSecurity Products Guide selected Vikram Phatak a its Gold Winner in the CEO of the Year Category, and NSS Labs was the Bronze Winner in the Best Overall Security Company of the Year. In 2017, the company was named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing companies. The company was also named to the Austin Business Journal Fast 50 list, which recognized the 50 fastest-growing companies in the region and the Austin Inno 50 on Fire list, which recognized the top 50 companies contributing to Austin’s innovation economy. The Cloud Platform for Continuous Security Validation Platform was selected as a Golden Bridge Awards Bronze Winner in the Best Product or Service of the Year category and was a Silver Winner by both the Network Products Guide and the InfoSecurity Products Guide for Best Information Security Risk Management product.

“2018’s crop of Top 100 winners has been among our most intriguing yet,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “North America has led the way in tech for so many years and to see such unique, pioneering entrepreneurs and companies here in California, which is in many ways the heartland of the industry, has been a thrilling experience. What has excited me most is to see so many people forging niches in high-tech and cutting-edge sectors. Some of the technical wizardry and first-rate business models on show here at the conference has been fantastic to learn about. We believe NSS Labs embodies the drive, skill and passion on which tech thrives. NSS Labs should be proud of its achievement; the competition was incredibly strong.”
