ThreatMetrix Recognized as One of Silicon Valley's "Hottest Companies" by Lead411

Lead411's "Hottest Companies in Silicon Valley" Awards Identify the Fastest Growing Technology Companies in 2011

LOS ALTOS, CA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - ThreatMetrix™, the fastest growing provider of fraud prevention solutions that do not require personally identifiable information (PII), announced today that it has been named among the "Hottest Companies in Silicon Valley" in 2011 by Lead411.

In an effort to recognize the fastest growing local technology companies, the "Hottest Companies" award recognizes privately held companies that have experienced either 150% increase in revenues over the past two years, putting total revenue over $3 million, or achieved more than $11 million in funding in the past two years. The nominee list began with 4,000 companies and was narrowed down to just 102 awardees.

"This year, the Silicon Valley list was exceptionally difficult," said Tom Blue, CEO of Lead411. "So many companies received large amounts of funding which led to a much larger list than normal."

This recognition further positions ThreatMetrix as a leader not only in the security and fraud industry, but also as a thriving, globally-recognized technology company.

"ThreatMetrix is continually making strides to advance in our industry, and receiving this award reinforces the impact of those initiatives," said Reed Taussig, president and CEO, ThreatMetrix. "As we continue to expand and roll out innovative solutions like our new ThreatMetrix Cloud-Based Fraud Prevention Platform, we'll be able to further build on this reputation and continue evolving in the space."
