 North America.  Red Herring is the premier magazine of business technology and

     "Five years after the dot-com bubble burst, innovation and
 entrepreneurship are thriving.  The companies on this list are proof," said
 Red Herring editor-in-chief Joel Dreyfuss.
     "We are honored to be selected a Red Herring 100 Company," said Darren
 Rennick, director and CEO of Prolexic.  "The award is an affirmation that our
 DDoS security solutions are tried, true, tested and ensuring that networks are
 free from intrusion.   As businesses reliant on their online interface
 continue to be targets of multi-gigabit attacks from extortionists, Prolexic's
 team of experts continues to stay three steps ahead and lead the industry by
 setting the standard for combating cyber-terrorism."
     Prolexic's service employs many layers of in-house engineered hardware,
 software, and network equipment to provide a cost-effective solution against
 DDoS attacks.  The Prolexic system works transparently to the customer and
 requires nominal changes to network infrastructure for full implementation.
     Red Herring's lists of private companies are an important part of the
 magazine's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies
 and entrepreneurs.
     Companies like Google and eBay were spotted in their early days by Red
 Herring editors as those that would change the way we live and work.
     Red Herring's editorial staff rigorously evaluated more than 900 private
 companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective
 criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and
 dedication to research and development.  Red Herring 100 companies will be
 presenting their business model and strategy at the Red Herring Spring
 conference.  Red Herring Spring will take place May 17-19 at the Monterey
 Plaza Hotel in Monterey, Calif.
