San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) April 6, 2007
Vyatta, the leader in open-source networking, today announced it has been selected as a Finalist for the Red Herring 100 Award, a selection of the 100 private companies based in North America that play a leading role in innovation and technology. Vyatta's nomination is based on its innovation in networking technology, an enterprise-class, open-source networking solution that includes router, firewall and VPN functionality.
The Red Herring editorial board diligently surveyed the entrepreneurial scene throughout the North American region and identified the top 200 out of more than 800 closely evaluated companies that are leading the next wave of innovation.
"We can see the exciting evolution of the technology sector reflected in the quality and variety of exceptional companies that we had to choose from in putting our list together," said Joel Dreyfuss, Editor-in-Chief of Red Herring. "It was tough to choose just 200 finalists from such a large list of excellent contenders, and we are very happy with the qualities of the companies we selected as Finalists."
The winning 100 companies will be announced at the Red Herring Spring event. The CEOs of the winners will present their innovative ideas and technologies to an audience of leading entrepreneurs, financiers and corporate strategists at the event in Monterey, California, on May 1-3 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
