AlienVault, the only open and collaborative Unified Security Management platform delivering built-in controls and full visibility, announced today that it has been selected as a winner of Red Herring’s 2012 Top 100 Global award, which is in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe and Asia.
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.
“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 AlienVault embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. AlienVault should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
“Today’s threats don’t discriminate between large enterprise and small company; organizations of all types and sizes need to address security and make it a priority. AlienVault was founded on the belief that security technology should be available to all, and that it should be complete, easy to deploy and use, and affordable. Our Unified Security Management platform embodies this belief by making the most essential tools available in a single, cost-effective platform,” said President and CEO, Barmak Meftah. “Red Herring recognizes innovative companies that provide measurable business value to brands worldwide. We’re honored to be part of the Global Top 100, as it further validates our mission to provide security visibility and threat management to any business, regardless of size or industry.”
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.
AlienVault provides organizations of all types and sizes with unprecedented visibility across the entire security ‘stack’ with the AlienVault Unified Security Management™ (AV-USM™) platform. Based on OSSIM– the de facto standard open source SIEM created by AlienVault – the AV-USM platform has five essential security capabilities built-in: asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, behavioral monitoring and security intelligence. The AlienVault Open Threat Exchange™, a system for sharing threat intelligence among OSSIM users and AlienVault customers, ensures AV-USM always stays ahead of threats.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
