Boulder, CO – May 21, 2014 – Klocwork, a global leader in static analysis tools for creating secure and reliable code, today announced it was selected as a winner of the Red Herring Top 100 North America award, a prestigious list recognizing innovation and technology in leading private companies throughout the Americas. Klocwork was acquired by Rogue Wave Software in January 2014.
“We’re extremely proud of our technology and our position among the best and most innovative companies recognized on the Red Herring Top 100 North America list,” said Brian Pierce, CEO of Rogue Wave Software. “Over a thousand companies around the world rely on Klocwork to help deliver mission-critical software that’s on-time, free of defects, and complies with industry standards. Along with the predictive data analytics, massively scalable debugging, and open source scanning and support provided by Rogue Wave’s suite of tools, Klocwork is an integral part of our strategy to give developers the power they need to accelerate their ideas and mitigate their own risks.”
Red Herring Top 100 North America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects 100 award winners from among the approximately 3,000 tech startups financed 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, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Marin Software, Palo Alto Networks, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“In 2014, selecting the top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation, and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the top 100 winners. We believe Klocwork embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Klocwork should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, management quality, 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.
