Cupertino, Calif. USA June 6, 2012 Forescout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of automated security control solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organizations, has been recognized as one of the leading private companies in the Americas, as selected by Red Herring for its elite “Top 100 North American Tech Startups” ranking.

“Management has done an outstanding job at delivering the goods. Forescout’s market leadership exemplifies what is a Top 100 tech startup success. They entered an early NAC market, rapidly gained ground over competitors and continued to expand their market dominance,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “As Forescout enters the nascent mobile security market, they are well positioned to replicate similar success as the space matures, and will capitalize on the BYOD phenomenon.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff determined the honorees by evaluating startup companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration. The Red Herring distinction was due in part to Forescout’s pioneering and best-in-class approach to automate network access and endpoint compliance, which is employed at more than 1,300 enterprises, government and military installations. The company’s drive to bring an array of mobile device management (MDM) products to market allows the company and its channel partners to take advantage of the “consumerization of IT” trend.

“Red Herring’s recognition of Forescout as a Top 100 startup is a great honor because it is a testament to our market execution, the strength of our development efforts, and tenacity toward customer service,” said Gord Boyce, CEO of Forescout.

Frost & Sullivan also recently recognized Forescout as the largest independent NAC vendor, and one that is growing the fastest among leaders in the network access control (NAC) market.1
