"Secure Islands has transformed the data security field with its innovative data immunization technology,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman and CEO, Red Herring.

Secure Islands announced today that it won a Red Herring Top 100 North America award. With competitions in North America, Europe, and Asia, Red Herring Top 100 Lists showcase the most exciting start ups worldwide. Having recently moved its headquarters from Israel to New York City, Secure Islands beat out hundreds of companies to be named one of North America’s most promising private ventures.

"Secure Islands has transformed the data security field with its innovative data immunization technology,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman and CEO, Red Herring. “With large, global rollouts at large companies, its solution has proven its performance, and has gained significant traction. Thus we have selected the company as a Red Herring Top 100, and we are confident it will soon become an industry brand name."

Since 1996, technology industry executives, investors, and strategists have valued the Red Herring 100 lists as an instrument for discovering and advocating the most promising private ventures from around the world. The Red Herring Top 100 North America award highlights the most exciting start-ups from the Americas. North American winners were announced at the Red Herring Hot 100 North America Forum, which occurred in San Diego on June 1st 2nd, 2015, after completing the third phase of the award – a presentation of the company’s technology and vision to Forum attendees.

With 2015 already tracking to displace 2014 as “The Year of the Mega Breach,” Secure Islands offers a much-needed alternative to network or perimeter based approaches that are ill-suited for today’s corporate IT environments. Secure Islands policy-driven classification and protection ensures that only those intended to see it can view corporate data and by automatically protecting data upon creation, data remains private and intact at all times, regardless of where it is, how it is being accessed, or who is accessing it. With marquee customers such as Credit Suisse, UBS, and others, Secure Islands empowers organizations to take highly effective preemptive measures to protect data.

“We understand how disruptive our technology is, but we also realize that alone will not ensure our success,” said Aki Eldar, CEO, Secure Islands. "That’s why being honored for our ability to build a business is particularly rewarding. After a lot of work, we’re now in the right place at the right time with the right technology – it’s very exciting, and we are delighted to be named a Red Herring Hot 100 North America company."
