Acronis selected as a 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Europe winner

Woburn, MA, 27 April, - Acronis has been included in Red Herring's Top 100 Europe award which recognizes the leading private companies in Europe, celebrating innovation and success across the telecommunications, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, biotech, mobile and other industries

Red Herring's Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Acronis embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Acronis should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been."

"Staying at the forefront in today's competitive market requires a strong combination of vision and innovation driven by a talented team. I am honored that Acronis is included in this community of companies and entrepreneurs that share these qualities," says Alex Pinchev, President and CEO at Acronis. "The widespread adoption of virtualization and the rise in the use of cloud services is forcing companies to change their approach to disaster recovery. Acronis has a decade of investment in research and development, and we are delivering next-generation technology to meet the dynamic needs of the storage and data protection market."

Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Europe.
