Salt Lake City, Utah, June, 26, 2018 -- RiskRecon, a rapidly growing company transforming the management of third-party cyber risk, announced today it has been chosen for Red Herring's Top 100 North America award, recognizing the continent’s most exciting and innovative private technology companies. RiskRecon was acknowledged for delivering unique risk-prioritized action plans that are custom-tailored to an organization’s risk tolerance. The company joins previous Red Herring award winners, including well-known brands such as Alibaba, Google, Skype, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube.
The Red Herring editorial team selected winning companies from thousands of entrants, whittled down to a pool of hundreds from across North America from which the final 100 were selected. Winners in the telecommunications, security, cloud, software, hardware, biotech, and mobile industries, among others, were judged by industry experts, insiders, and journalists on a wide variety of criteria including financial performance, innovation, business strategy, and market penetration.
"We’re thrilled to have been selected to receive this prestigious honor from among the many impressive companies breaking new ground in their respective fields," said Eric Blatte, co-founder and president of RiskRecon. "This award acknowledges our unique, automated approach, enabling companies to scale their third-party cyber risk programs based on risk prioritization supported by concrete, actionable data.”

We believe RiskRecon embodies the drive, skill, and passion on which tech thrives and it should be proud of its achievement: the competition was incredibly strong.”
