Acronis Named As a Finalist for the 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Europe Award
Leading provider of data protection and disaster recovery software is recognized for growth and innovation in Europe
Woburn, MA- April 11, 2012, Acronis announced today that it has been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 Europe award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology companies from the European business region.
Finalists for the 2012 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award are selected by the Red Herring editorial team based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. Hundreds of companies in the telecommunications, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, biotech, mobile and other industries were nominated for the award.
This comprehensive assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.
"This year was very rewarding," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "The global economic situation has abated and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. Acronis GmbH shows great promise therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe. We know that the 2012 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact."
“Acronis is an established company with ten years of software innovation and growth in a highly competitive market,” commented Alex Pinchev, President and CEO at Acronis. “I am very proud that we continue to be recognized as a leader for the next generation of data protection technology amongst some of the most innovative companies in Europe.”
