SAN MATEO CA, November 7, 2014 – Norse, the leader in live cyber attack intelligence, today announced that it has been selected as a candidate for the Red Herring 2014 Top 100 Global award. The award recognizes and honors the year’s most audacious and far-reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from around the world.

“We are delighted to be selected as a finalist by Red Herring,” said Sam Glines, CEO of Norse. “We believe that there needs to be a next-generation approach to security that is based on live intelligence. Recognition among a prestigious group of companies is gratifying.”

The Red Herring editorial team selected the companies that demonstrate the most innovative technologies and business models. The group is comprised of more than 1000 companies from 40 nations. These companies represent past Red Herring Asia, Europe, and North America awards. They 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.

“Technology companies are becoming the bright spot in the economic outlook based on their increasing role within macro-economic environments,” stated Alex Vieux, Red Herring chairman. “2014 has demonstrated the sector’s vibrant activity and its contribution to the global economic recovery. An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are jumping ahead of the competition and making a difference. Constant breakthroughs make recent developments obsolete faster than ever before. Norse is performing exceptionally well in its field and strongly deserves to be singled out as one of the Red Herring Global finalists. At this stage, we are left with the daunting task to select the best qualified companies for the 2014 Top 100 Global Award.”

Award finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Global forum in Los Angeles, Nov. 18 to 20. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on Nov. 20 at the event.
