PASADENA, Calif. - May 22, 2019
SiteLock, the global leader in website security solutions, today announced that it has been recognized by Red Herring as a winner of its Top 100 North America 2019 award for security. The award celebrates the continent's most exciting and innovative private technology companies.
The Red Herring award follows a significant year of growth and achievement for SiteLock. With a continued mission to secure every website on the internet, SiteLock expanded its product portfolio and launched the SiteLock VPN in February. SiteLock also partnered with domain registrar Name.com in April. The company expanded its leadership roster earlier this year, too.
With websites currently experiencing over 62 attacks per day, and the majority of those attacks targeting small and medium businesses, the need for proven cybersecurity solutions that every organization can afford and implement is more important than ever. Leveraging proprietary innovative technology, combined with world-class customer service and support, SiteLock pioneered the website security industry and made enterprise-level solutions accessible and affordable to small and medium-sized businesses (SMB's) worldwide.
"We're honored to be named a Top 100 North American security company and are excited to see our continued focus and hard work celebrated," said Tom Heiser, Chairman and CEO of SiteLock. "As the threat landscape continues to evolve and become even more sophisticated, small businesses face the same risks as the biggest global corporations. They need comprehensive and reliable cybersecurity solutions to protect their online presence. This recognition is a credit to our talented team, who are all committed to shaping the future of cybersecurity through new technology partnerships and innovative solutions tailored to the SMB market."
The winners, celebrated at a special awards ceremony at the Westin Pasadena Hotel, have been chosen from thousands of entrants, whittled down to hundreds making the trip to California. The ceremony, led by Red Herring chairman Alex Vieux, was preceded by two days of keynote speeches, discussions and finalist presentations.
Companies were judged by industry experts, insiders and journalists on a wide variety of criteria including financial performance, innovation, business strategy, and market penetration. Winners ran the gamut of verticals, from FinTech and Marketing to Security, IoT, and many more industries.
"2019's crop of Top 100 winners has been among our most intriguing yet," said Vieux. "North America has led the way in tech for so many years, and to see such unique, pioneering entrepreneurs and companies here in California, which is in many ways the heartland of the industry, has been a thrilling experience."
"What has excited me most is to see so many people forging niches in high-tech and cutting edge sectors," added Vieux. "Some of the technical wizardry and first-rate business models showcased here at the conference has been fantastic to learn about. We believe SiteLock embodies the drive, skill and passion on which tech thrives. SiteLock should be proud of its achievement - the competition was incredibly strong."
