Versa Chosen as a 2017 Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner

Santa Clara, Calif. – June 27, 2017 – Versa Networks, a leading provider of next-generation software-based networking and security solutions, today announced that it is a recipient of Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award. This accolade recognizes today’s leading top 100 private and innovative technology companies in North America across various industries.

Red Herring’s editors have been evaluating the world’s startups and tech companies for over two decades. Brands such as Alibaba, Google, Kakao, Skype, Spotify, Twitter and YouTube have all been singled out in Red Herring’s storied history.

“Every year, Red Herring scouts hundreds of companies and reads about thousands of projects, but only a few receive the Top 100 Red Herring North America award. Versa Networks is one of them. Why? It has all the ingredients: the company addresses a huge pain point that most carriers and large enterprises face; its agile software solution is nothing short of disruptive and unique. Moreover, Versa has assembled a world-class team of seasoned executives and investors, and will unequivocally become one of the great tech successes of its generation.”

“We are honored to be recognized as a highly innovative company by Red Herring for the second straight year,” said Kumar Mehta, founder and chief development officer at Versa Networks. “Being amongst the elite ranks of Red Herring Top 100 winners is evidence of our commitment to building a global technology company focused on delivering disruptive solutions.”
