For over two decades Red Herring's team has seen through the tech sector's hype to select brands that have become industry benchmarks. Previous Top 100 finalists have included Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter and YouTube. Today's announcement caps off an important week for Seceon; the company was also nominated for and advanced to the next round of the Big 50 Startup 50, which is focused on identifying startups that help real people and the real-world problems they're struggling to overcome. Additionally, Seceon was recognized by Silicon Review as one of the ten best and one of the ten fastest growing cybersecurity companies of 2017.
"Selecting finalists for this year's Top 100 has proved more difficult than ever," said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. "North America has been tech's beating heart for years–but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2017."
Finalists for the awards are among the continent's brightest and most innovative private ventures. Their place among North America's tech elite has been chosen by Red Herring's editorial team, during a months-long process that takes into account criteria including disruptive impact, proof of concept, financial performance, market footprint and quality of management.
"Seceon fully deserves its place among our finalists, and I've every confidence it will make a significant impact in the tech world," added Vieux.
"This Red Herring honor illuminates the significance of our Seceon OTM cybersecurity platform to the business and technology community," said Chandra Pandey, Seceon founder and CEO.
