Checkmarx Selected as Winner of 2014 Red Herring Top 100 Europe Award

Prestigious Award Given to Europe’s Most Promising Private Technology Ventures

(April 14, 2014. Tel Aviv, Israel) – Checkmarx, a leading provider of code analysis tools that identify security vulnerabilities in web and mobile applications, is delighted to be awarded a 2014 Red Herring Top 100 Europe Award, which celebrates the innovative technologies of private companies across the European region. Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work. “Selecting startups that show the most potential for disruption and growth is never easy,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “We looked at hundreds and hundreds of candidates from all across the continent, and after much thought and debate, narrowed the list down to the Top 100 Winners. Each year, the competition gets tougher but we believe Checkmarx demonstrates the vision, drive and innovation that define a Red Herring winner.” Checkmarx is a creator of software solutions that secure mobile and web applications in order to protect consumer data as they are programmed. Checkmarx scans software source-code, quickly identifying security vulnerabilities and regulatory compliance issues, and immediately shows developers and security auditors where and how to fix them. “We are thrilled to win this award,” said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO of Checkmarx.  “It is confirmation that our technology is not only groundbreaking, but recognized as integral for securing applications that contain the personal information of millions of people. As the popularity of mobile and web applications rises, it is more urgent than ever to ensure consumer privacy and security. The best way to do this is by checking for vulnerabilities as the app is developed, before any consumer information is put at risk.” Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar startups in the same verticals, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in the European region.   About Checkmarx Checkmarx is a leading developer of software solutions used to identify security vulnerabilities in web and mobile applications.
