STOCKHOLM -- May 8, 2006-
>Red Herring announced today that Ingate® Systems (www.ingate.com), which develops firewall technology and products that enable SIP-based live communication for the enterprise while maintaining control and security at the network edge, is a recipient of Red Herring 100 Europe, a selection of the 100 private companies based in the EMEA region that play a leading role in innovation and technology.
Red Herring’s editorial staff rigorously evaluated more than 700 private companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development.
“Market obstacles remain but our list shows that great companies are being created in Europe,” said Red Herring editor-in-chief Joel Dreyfuss.
Olle Westerberg, Chief Executive Officer of Ingate Systems, will present at Red Herring’s Venture Market Europe 2006 conference, a forum for technology’s most exciting companies to share their insights on the future of innovation and the entrepreneurial journey. Scheduled for May 8-10, at the Westin Paris, this intimate, three-day conference will explore the trends, technologies and people affecting the IT sphere in the EMEA region. Last year’s optimistic outlook has been revisited and reflected in the 2006 theme “Old World, New Hope - 100 Reasons to Believe in Europe’s Innovative Edge.”
“Truly, innovation is coming out of the EMEA region. Ingate is proud to be named to the Red Herring 100 Europe, as we continue to develop the very best in SIP-capable firewall technology enabling enterprises to communicate over the Internet in realtime,” said Westerberg.
Red Herring’s lists of top private companies are an important part of the magazine’s tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google, eBay and Skype were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors as those that would change the way we live and work.
