Trusted Metrics Named 2016 Red Herring Top 100 Global Award Finalist

Triple-Digit Domestic and International Growth Recognized

Raleigh, NC — Trusted Metrics Inc., a developer of security monitoring solutions for managed service providers (MSPs), announced today it had been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s 2016 Top 100 Global award, a prestigious recognition honoring the year’s most audacious and far-reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe. In 2015, Trusted Metrics was named a finalist for the Red Herring Top 100 in North America.

Trusted Metrics provides Elastic SOC®, a multi-tenant, cloud-based platform which gives organizations of any size the ability to incorporate SIEM as a framework for centralized log correlation, intrusion detection, asset management, vulnerability management, threat intelligence, alarm generation and network performance management into a single console. This solution was purpose-built for managed service providers (MSPs) and managed security service providers (MSSPs), giving them the ability to deploy a white-labeled virtual Security Operations Center (SOC) for their clients, enabling around-the-clock network security monitoring, protection and response.

The Red Herring editorial team selected companies who demonstrate the most innovative technologies and business models, originating from over 1,000 companies from more than 40 nations. These companies represent past Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America award winners in their respective regions. Companies are judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics such as technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management’s execution standards, potential globalization of the strategy, and market share improvement.

“In today’s economies, the unrivaled technology ubiquity is not only disrupting how we work but also how we live and think. The vast amount of data and intellectual property combined with the innovation and disruption created by today’s entrepreneurs is touching every sector,” Red Herring CEO, Alex Vieux said. “Speed, creativity and unconventional business models are constantly shifting investors’ thesis and users’ behavior – both are demanding more, not less, from entrepreneurs. An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are jumping ahead of the competition and making a difference.”

Trusted Metrics’ Founder and CEO, Michael Menefee said, “Cyber security is at the forefront of most minds today. By bringing the power of enterprise-grade solutions down to small- and mid-markets, we are protecting an entire subset of the economy largely forgotten by the big players. We are truly grateful to be considered a finalist by Red Herring. Our record growth this year in both the US and international markets, coupled with consistent industry recognition, continue to propel Trusted Metrics forward as a leader in the security space.”
