SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2016) - Exabeam, the leader in user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) for security, has been named a winner of the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award -- a prestigious list honoring the year's most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.

"Stolen credentials make cybercriminals invisible to nearly all security solutions," said Nir Polak, CEO of Exabeam. "We are honored to receive this award as it validates our approach and drive to provide the most innovative, most effective, solution to find the bad insiders and imposters in your infrastructure before they can make off with your data."

Red Herring Top 100 America selects award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Its editorial staff evaluates 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.

"In 2016, selecting the top achievers was extremely difficult," 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 it one of the toughest vintages to judge. The North America 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, Exabeam should be proud of its accomplishment under such strong competition."

This is the fifth award recognition for Exabeam this year. The company was recently named the winner of the 2016 Security Shark Tank, winner of the 2016 IBM Beacon Award for Outstanding Security Solution, was selected as a finalist for Best Behaviour Analytics Solution in the SC Magazine UK awards, and was named a finalist for the Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company in the 2016 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.
