SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2014) - AlienVault™, the leading provider of Unified Security Management™ solutions and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, today announced that it was recognized by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 demonstrated AlienVault's leadership amongst its peers for having game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. AlienVault was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. To finalize the 2014 list, the AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process.
"This year, the top cloud infrastructure, SaaS, and on-demand software players are making serious inroads into the enterprise and business community. Cloud storage wars and excellent software offerings are making the cloud an even more attractive place to do business. Both business and consumer users are migrating to the cloud in droves, bringing us into a new digital age filled with opportunity," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's OnDemand 100 winners list is jam packed with companies that are using the cloud to create and host imaginative, versatile apps. Mobile, business, consumer -- the on-demand universe is propelling the entire Global Silicon Valley into an interdependent, connected, and mobile future."
"Oftentimes critical data is spread across a variety of environments including in the cloud, in the data center, or on-premise, which makes it tough for organizations to secure critical assets," said Barmak Meftah, president and CEO of AlienVault. "AlienVault's Unified Security Management platform provides enterprises with the security visibility required to secure data wherever it is stored, and we have the ability to follow our customers into any environment they desire to house their data."
AlienVault and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on June 4, 2014, at Draper University in San Mateo, California. AlienVault President and CEO Meftah will be onsite to accept the company's acknowledgement and, in a panel during the event, he will discuss the state of security and managed services in the cloud.
This exclusive event treats attendees to a high-level debate and discourse on top trends and opportunities in the SaaS, cloud, on-demand and mobile enterprise sectors. A full list of all the OnDemand 100 winners can be found on the AlwaysOn website: http://aonetwork.com.
