Technology innovator recognised for its email deliverability solution at global forum

BoxSentry has proven to be a company excelling in their industry and its ripples have turned into waves. It was difficult for us to narrow down, but we are pleased to have included BoxSentry in our list of promising companies. We look forward to the changes it makes to its industry in the future.

BoxSentry, an innovative email deliverability solutions provider that ensures business-safe email protection, announced today that it has been awarded the coveted Red Herring 100 Global Award. The 100 winners were announced at the Red Herring 100 Global event in San Diego, California, on January 14-16, 2009. This announcement came shortly following BoxSentry's inclusion in the Red Herring 100 Asia list in December, 2008.

The Red Herring 100 Global Award has been touted as recognition of the work done by promising startups with the potential to lead the next wave of disruption and innovation. The 100 winners for 2008 were selected from over 1200 private companies from Europe, North America and Asia, including previous finalists and winners.

"We are delighted to have won both the Red Herring 100 Asia Award last month and the Red Herring 100 Global Award," said Manish Goel, CEO of BoxSentry. "This international recognition is a testament to our dedication to excellence, innovation and unique approach to email security. This award also affirms the value of RealMail™, our flagship product which protects legitimate email in multiple languages, especially in Asia Pacific and Middle East," he added.

The RealMail™ product was developed as a solution designed not only to stop spam, but more importantly, to protect legitimate email. Studies have shown that false positives, legitimate emails that are wrongly marked as spam, can impact between 0.2 to 0.5 percent of all email traffic. Many companies however, do not realise the issue of false positives and the effect on their businesses. BoxSentry aims to create this awareness and educate them on the need for False Positive Prevention, especially in this digital age where emails are business critical. The Red Herring team recognises this gap in the email security market and BoxSentry's efforts to address that through its product, RealMail™.

"We were so pleased to announce BoxSentry as a Red Herring Top 100 Global Company," commented Red Herring publisher Alex Vieux. "BoxSentry has proven to be a company excelling in their industry and its ripples have turned into waves. It was difficult for us to narrow down, but we are pleased to have included BoxSentry in our list of promising companies. We look forward to the changes it makes to its industry in the future."

The Red Herring 100 Global summit took place in San Diego, California, on January 14-16, 2009. Over the 3-day event, over 400 business leaders worldwide gathered to network and exchange views on business and technology trends through keynote presentations, roundtable discussions and networking events. Past winners of this award include Google, Yahoo!, Skype, Netscape, Salesforce.com, and YouTube.
