IRVINE, Calif., June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloudpaging leader Numecent® today announced that it is a winner of Red Herring's Top 100 North America award, honoring this year's most promising private technology companies in USA and Canada. This accolade rapidly follows the recent award from CIO Review magazine naming Numecent among the top 20 virtualization solutions for 2015 and TechTarget, citing Numecent as one of the 12 data-center technology companies to watch in 2015.
Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.
This recent award traction is based on Numecent's unique virtualization and containerization platform – "cloudpaging" – which excels in dynamic and friction-free provisioning of any Microsoft® Windows® application directly to virtual or physical desktops without installation and without streaming any pixels. Through cloudpaging, ISVs, Cloud Service Providers and Enterprises can substantially reduce the server, network, storage and IT footprint of native applications delivered from the cloud or on-premises.
"In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of finalists from across North America to the North America winners. We believe Numecent embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Numecent should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."
Numecent (www.numecent.com) is a fast-growing software and cloud-services company based in Irvine, California. The company is a pioneer and technology leader in rapid, secure and friction-free provisioning of native applications from the cloud (public, private or on-premises) through virtualization and containerization and without streaming any pixels to the client device.
Numecent was named a Gartner "Cool Vendor 2013" in recognition of its disruptive cloudpaging platform and, in a recent survey, ranked #11 in Cloud Thought Leadership alongside industry giants. So far in 2015, Numecent was selected to be one of the 'Top 20 Virtualization' solutions by CIO Review magazine, one of the 'Top 12 Data Center' companies to watch by TechTarget and is a winner of the Red Herring Top 100 North America award.
A pure B2B/OEM play, Numecent has so far helped deliver more than 20 million sessions and 10,000+ cloudified applications for leading ISVs, Cloud Service Providers and Enterprises around the world. Numecent's customers can choose to self-host cloudpaging services or to subscribe to Numecent's white-label cloud service offering, 'Native-as-a-Service' (NaaS), which is available globally through 31 data centers.
