The Red Herring editorial team selected the companies demonstrating the most innovative technologies and business models originating from over 1000 companies from over 40 nations. These companies, representing past Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America award winners, are judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including, technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management's execution standards, potential globalization of the strategy and market share improvement. In April 2013, Varnish Software won the Red Herring 100 Europe award.
“We are very honored to be chosen for this award that recognizes the top tech companies in the world,” said Lars Larsson, CEO of Varnish Software. “As the Internet continues to grow a world-class online presence is becoming an increasingly important success factor for all kinds of businesses. Varnish delivers the critical differentiating elements of reliability, speed, scalability and web performance. This award is a testament that Varnish Software is delivering unique added value for companies that rely on their online presences for revenue and success.”
“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 the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Varnish Software embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Varnish Software should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
Varnish is in good company as a Red Herring winner
