SparkCognition Finalist at 2017 Red Herring Top 100 North America

AUSTIN, Texas – June 7, 2017 – SparkCognition, one of the market’s most exciting artificial intelligence companies, has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, one of the technology industry’s most prestigious prizes.

Finalists for the awards are among the continent’s brightest and most innovative private ventures. Their place among North America’s tech elite has been chosen by Red Herring’s editorial team, during a months-long process that takes into account criteria including disruptive impact, proof of concept, financial performance, market footprint and quality of management.

A global leader in cognitive computing analytics, SparkCognition has achieved substantial growth since it was founded in 2013 and works with some of the largest organizations in the world to develop AI-Powered asset-protection software. SparkCognition solutions are deployed with companies such as The London Stock Exchange, Honeywell, Invenergy, Flowserve, Dover Energy Automation, and works with partners such as IBM, Google Could ML, OSI Soft, and HPE. The company recently released its latest product, DeepArmor for Enterprise, a cognitive anti-malware solution that has detected and blocked major cyber threats such as Popcorn Time, Double Agent, Wannacry, and Adylkuzz.

“SparkCognition is honored to be included as a finalist for the Red Herring’s Top 100 North America Award,” said Amir Husain, CEO of SparkCognition. “From the beginning, SparkCognition has worked to become the world’s leading cognitive computing analytics company at the forefront of AI. We tackle society’s great challenge: how to extend the life of our critical infrastructure with the intelligence needed to keep our most important systems safe, secure and reliable. This recognition from Red Herring is further motivation to aggressively press forward as an industry leader and innovator.”

For over two decades Red Herring’s team has looked beyond the tech sector’s hype to select brands that have truly become industry benchmarks. Previous Top 100 finalists have included Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube. The Top 100 North America has become not only a springboard for some of tech’s biggest names, but a valued and trusted tool for venture capitalists, experts and analysts predicting trends at the industry’s sharpest edge.

“Selecting finalists for this year’s Top 100 has proved more difficult than ever,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. “North America has been tech’s beating heart for years–but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2017. SparkCognition fully deserves its place among our finalists, and I’ve every confidence it will make a significant impact in the tech world.”

Finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Top 100 North America conference in Los Angeles, June 12-14 2017. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on the evening of June 14 at the event.
