BELMONT, Calif., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Prolexic, the world's leading provider of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) solutions and security consulting products, is named one of the Red Herring 100 Private Companies of North America. Red Herring is the premier magazine of business technology and innovation. The magazine's editors chose Prolexic based on the company's superior technology, business strategy and strong potential for continued success. "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.
