Ayehu, a leading provider of enterprise-grade automation and orchestration solutions for IT and Cyber Security Incident Response Automation, today announced that it has been selected as a recipient of this year’s Red Herring Top 100 Asia award.
Red Herring Top 100 Asia enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 2000 privately financed companies each year in the Asia. 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 Google, Facebook, Kakao, Alibaba, Twitter, Rakuten, Salesforce.com, Xiaomi and YouTube would change the way we live and work.
“In 2016, selecting the top achievers was difficult as always,” 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 2016 a great vintage to judge. The Asia 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, Ayehu should be proud of its accomplishment.”
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 Asia.
“We are proud to have been selected by Red Herring as one of the Top 100 companies in the region,” said Gabby Nizri, Co-Founder and CEO of Ayehu. “Our global presence continues to grow and in Asia we are seeing strong adoption for our automated IT process and cyber security incident response solution as it is bringing immediate cost savings, efficiencies and process improvements that translate into competitive advantage.”
