)-- Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986 today announced it has been named a winner of the Red Herring 2013 Top 100 North America award, which recognizes the most promising privately held companies in North America for the innovations, technologies and business models they are utilizing to become leaders in their respective industries. Asigra EVP, Eran Farajun accepted the award at the Red Herring Americas 2013 award event that occurred on May 23rd.
The annual Red Herring Top 100 North America Awards is one of the most acclaimed distinctions in the technology industry. The awards honor the region's top entrepreneurs and innovative private companies that are anticipated to experience extensive rapid growth based on their current accomplishments to date. Red Herring maintains it is the only organization that requires as much disclosure and requires three validations in order to win a Red Herring award.
“In 2013, selecting the Top 100 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 have crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Asigra embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Asigra should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring 100 Awards are widely recognized as one of the industry’s more prestigious recognitions, with up to 1,400 candidates from each continent competing each year. The Top 100 were selected on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, innovation, quality of management, IP creation, CAGR, execution of strategy, and disruption in their respective industries. This exceptional group of 100 highlight the most innovative, disruptive and fastest growing companies North America has to offer.
The finalists were asked to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring North America Forum in Monterey, Calif., May 21 to 23, 2013. All companies were examined by at least four judges before the conference, and by one or two judges during the event.
