SANTA MONICA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/12 -- JFrog (www.jfrog.com ), the creator of Artifactory Binary Repository, announced today it has been selected as a winner of Red Herring's Top 100 Global award, a prestigious list recognizing the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia, celebrating startups' innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
"We are honored to be among the Red Herring Top 100 Global," said Shlomi Ben Haim, JFrog Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "We owe our success to our customers. In just four years of operation, JFrog has received overwhelming support within the software development communities by significantly improving day-to-day operations for frontline development teams."
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their peers, 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 from around the world.
"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Global to the Top 100 Winners. We believe JFrog embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. JFrog should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been."
Red Herring's Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Google, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
