Bastille, the first cybersecurity company to detect and mitigate threats from the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 North America Award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region. Bastille was recognized for its groundbreaking security solution that detects and analyzes all the data transmitted within the enterprise via radio frequencies (RF) at 60MHz – 6GHz, which includes cellular, Wi-Fi, and more than 100 IoT protocols. Bastille provides unparalleled situational awareness to security threats and anomalous behavior contained across the full wireless spectrum within the enterprise.

“Red Herring’s Top 100 is a prestigious industry award and it’s an honor to be named a finalist,” said Chris Risley, CEO, Bastille. “This recognition is another endorsement of our ongoing mission to protect enterprises from IoT threats by scanning the entire RF spectrum and providing the visibility and data needed to secure corporate airspaces.”

Since 1955, Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising start-ups in the fields of security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, life sciences, cloud, and mobile across North America. Each company is judged on twenty criteria including the candidate company’s addressable market size, its IP and patents, its financing, the proof of concept, trailing revenues and management’s expertise. Finalists include some of the best performing and prominent companies of that year.

"The finalists’ list confirms the excellent choices made by entrepreneurs and VCs and the start-ups solid roots in corporate America, embracing their innovations. By all metrics, it emphasizes the United States’ entrepreneurial excellence," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.

Bastille is the first company to detect and mitigate the rapidly emerging threats to the enterprise that are the unintended consequence of the Internet of Things. Bastille helps enterprise security teams protect corporate airspace by scanning the entire radio frequency (RF) spectrum, gaining visibility into devices that operate on more than 100 distinct protocols.

Bastille will present its winning strategies at the Red Herring North America Forum in Newport Beach, CA. on June 7, 2016. The Top 100 winners will be announced during a special awards ceremony the evening of June 8.
