Recognized for creating new opportunities in on-demand software, cloud computing and SaaS
Campbell, Calif., March 19, 2012 – AlienVault, creator of OSSIM, the de facto standard open source SIEM (Security Information and Event Management), today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. AlienVault was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
“AlienVault recognizes that cyber attacks are a global concern and that we must all work together in order to be more secure. Our innovative Open Threat Exchange community-sources threat intelligence so that an attack on any member of our global community alerts and arms the entire community” said AlienVault CEO and President, Barmak Meftah. “AlienVault is proud to be recognized by AlwaysOn as a leading company that is changing the way threat intelligence is harnessed and delivered for the common good.”
AlienVault and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnDemand event on April 4th, 2012, at Hewlett-Packard’s Executive Briefing Center in Cupertino, CA.
This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting how companies—from small businesses to large enterprises—create, store, distribute, analyze, and take advantage of their mission-critical data.
“Digital information has expanded exponentially during the past year. As the emergence of robust, innovative apps needed to manage this information continues, a complex world of interconnected business intelligence and ideas is being created at a new macro level,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s OnDemand 100 winners are continuing to use disruptive technology and ideas to merge valuable legacy data and systems with new, vital streams of information. The results are being deployed in the cloud by any number of SaaS products and services, changing the way all business coexist. The OnDemand 100 continues to represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace.”
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.
