"This year's winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we've seen in the private company marketplace in the history of the global Silicon Valley."

The AlwaysOn Global 250 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.
