Tempered Networks Selected as a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2016) - Red Herring today announced its Top 100 North America award winners in recognition of the leading private companies from the region, celebrating these startups' innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.

"In 2016, selecting the top achievers was extremely difficult," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "The variety, depth, disruption and traction we saw from the early stage companies to those with significant scale made it one of the toughest vintages to judge. The North America winners are representative of the amazing ecosystem that never ceases to astound, with new and experienced entrepreneurs continuing to push the barriers of innovation. As one of the winners, Tempered Networks should be proud of its accomplishment under such strong competition."

"I am proud that our company has been recognized for its exceptional vision, strategy and execution, particularly amongst the keen set of competitors in the running," said Jeff S. Hussey, CEO of Tempered Networks. "We believe our company is making a significant impact on the future of IP networking, as we build trust and security into the backbone of global commerce and communications."

Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector 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 in North America.
