Sentrix Chosen as Red Herring Top 100 Europe Winner


Sentrix’ Cloud-DMZ Security Technology Critical to Protecting Enterprise Web Applications

 Amsterdam – April 20, 2015 – Sentrix, (, provider of Cloud-DMZ, the leading cloud-based web application security as a service, was selected as one of the Top 100 Companies in Europe by Red Herring magazine.

The Red Herring Top 100 recognizes Europe’s leading private companies and celebrates startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way people live and work.

Sentrix was selected based on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy, and market penetration.

“Selecting startups that show the most potential for disruption and growth is never easy,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “We looked at hundreds and hundreds of candidates from all across the continent, and after much thought and debate, narrowed the list down to the Top 100 Winners. Each year, the competition gets tougher but we believe Sentrix demonstrates the vision, drive and innovation that define a Red Herring Top 100.”

Sentrix’ Cloud-DMZ uses a disruptive approach to address one of the major IT security pains: protecting enterprise Web applications against costly exploits and DDoS attacks, simply and effectively. It replaces or augments conventional Web Application Firewalls, which are extremely complex to deploy, configure, and manage within today’s dynamic web development models and threat landscape.

Unlike conventional web application firewalls that inspect all incoming traffic hoping to detect malicious requests, Sentrix Cloud-DMZ virtualizes the enterprise website’s user interface within a cloud-based replica, which automatically eliminates more than 99% of the enterprise website’s attack surface. As a result it dramatically focuses and improves website security and manageability, eliminates zero-day undocumented threats, allows businesses to function under heavy DDoS attacks, reduces IT security workload, and minimizes false positives.

Cloud-DMZ is designed to support modern DevOps models by streamlining web application deployment cycles and disconnecting web deployment from security dependencies. It also helps organizations meet data security compliance requirements such as PCI. Cloud-DMZ is deployed across industries, including financial institutions, healthcare, media, higher education, telecom, government and other enterprise customers.

“Innovation is the only way to protect enterprise web applications and support modern Web development models within a complex threat landscape,” said Ofer Wolf, CEO of Sentrix. “We are honored that after reviewing our technology and our success record with live customers Red Herring has recognized Sentrix as the company re-inventing Web Application security.”
