ANNAPOLIS, Md., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- iJET Intelligent Risk Systems, a leading provider of global intelligence and business resiliency services, announced today it has been selected for the 2010 Red Herring 100 North America award, a prestigious list celebrating the year's leading private companies from North America.
"We are honored to be recognized as one of Red Herring's Top 100," said Steve Hoffman, CEO of iJET. "This award is a testament to the strategic focus of our company and the real-world value of the resiliency solutions we deliver. Our technology and service innovations are shaped by the changing needs of our global client base -- supporting their efforts to maximize resiliency while minimizing risks."
Red Herring's Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. iJET was selected from among hundreds of the most innovative companies from across North America based on its technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition and financial health.
"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 North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe iJET Intelligent Risk Systems embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. iJET should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy and integration into their respective industries. This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list an invaluable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry. Past winners of the Red Herring 100 award include Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube and eBay.
