AUSTIN, Texas – November 21, 2017 – NSS Labs, Inc., a global leader and trusted source for independent, fact-based cybersecurity guidance today announced that it has been selected as a winner of the Red Herring Top 100 Global award. This annual award recognizes the most innovative private technology companies from Asia, Europe, and North America. NSS Labs was also selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner earlier this year.

The Red Herring Top 100 Global award is one of several honors that the company and its CAWS Continuous Security Validation Platform have received in 2017. Earlier this year, NSS Labs was named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies, the Austin Business Journal Fast 50 list of the fastest-growing companies in the region, and the Austin Inno 50 on Fire list of the top companies contributing to the local innovation economy. CAWS was recognized by the Network Products Guide as a Silver Winner in the Information and Security Risk Management category of its 2017 IT World Awards and by the Golden Bridge Awards as a Bronze Winner in the Information Security Risk Management Innovations category.

“2017 has been a year of significant milestones and accelerating business growth for NSS Labs,” said Vikram Phatak, CEO of NSS Labs. “We are honored to be selected to the Red Herring Top 100 Global list of the best private technology companies. This prestigious award underscores the importance of our mission to advance transparency and accountability in the cybersecurity industry.”

The Red Herring Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Choosing the top 100 companies from with the greatest potential is never an easy undertaking,” said Alex Vieux, Red Herring Chairman. “After careful contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe NSS Labs embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture.”
