Vysk Selected as a 2015 Red Herring Top 100 Global Company

Company Honored for its Technology Innovation

(San Antonio, TX) – Vysk, the leader in mobile security for businesses, announced it was selected as a 2015 Red Herring Top 100 Global Company. Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. 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 records 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 from around the world.

"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 the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Vysk embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture."

Vysk’s flagship QS1 smartphone case for the iPhone 5/5s, delivers true mobile security by providing a jamming system for all microphones, a dedicated encryption processor for secure calling, two mechanical camera shutters, and a dedicated 3.5 mm jack for secure hands-free calling via wired headset. Encryption takes place at the source, not in software, and is made even more secure with the Vysk Privacy Network.

"This is now the fifth award Vysk has received this year alone. It is clear Vysk technology is the cutting edge of truly private hardware voice communications, end-to-end encrypted text messaging, and an encrypted vault for your photos," said Victor Cocchia, CEO and Co-founder of Vysk. "Our products, like our flagship QS1, continue to set the standard for mobile security in the business, government, and healthcare communities."
