NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2008) - PeerApp Ltd., the leader in intelligent media caching and content acceleration, today announced its selection as a Red Herring 100 Award winner, which honors the 100 most innovative private technology companies in North America.

The Red Herring editorial staff selected PeerApp as one of 100 winners after rigorously evaluating more than 800 private companies. Nominees were closely evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their ecosystems.

"With venture capital flowing again, it's exciting to see technology innovators and business investors collaborate to create disruptive technologies. The Red Herring 100 North America companies are impressive up-and-comers, and definitely the ones to watch."
