Kaspersky Lab Selected as a Red Herring Global 100 2007 Winner

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of Internet threat management solutions that protect against all forms of malicious Internet threats.   

Red Herring 100 winners and finalists from North America, Europe and Asia of the last three years were eligible for this award. The Red Herring editorial team used a very competitive process to whittle down this pool of 1800 eligible promising companies to the 100 winners of this first-time award.  Evaluations were made on both quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, innovation, management, global strategy, and ecosystem integration.

"The 100 winners came from 19 countries, proving once again that no single country or region has a monopoly on innovation," said Joel Dreyfuss, Editor-in-Chief of Red Herring. "They are all exceptional companies with smart and innovative platforms that attest to the importance of technology in today’s global economy.”

“Being selected as one of Red Herring’s Global 100 winners is a testament to our Company, our technology, and our overall mission to make the Internet a safer place,” said Eugene Kaspersky, CEO, Kaspersky Lab.  “Red Herring continually identifies truly innovative technologies and companies bound for success and we are honored to be among a group of solidly talented winners.”

 

The winning companies were announced and celebrated at the Red Herring Global event in Seattle, WA, on December 3-5.

Red Herring's lists of top private companies are an important part of the magazine's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google, eBay and Skype were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors as those that would change the way we live and work.
