Bastille Wins Prestigious 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award

Company Recognized for its Groundbreaking Security Solution that Detects and Mitigates the Threats to Enterprises that are the Unintended Consequence of the Internet of Things

ATLANTA, GA – JUNE 10, 2016 – Bastille, the first cybersecurity company to detect and mitigate threats from the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it has been selected as a Top 100 North America award winner. Bastille was recognized for its groundbreaking security solution that detects and analyzes all the data transmitted within the enterprise via radio frequencies (RF) at 60MHz – 6GHz, which includes cellular, Wi-Fi, and more than 100 IoT protocols. Bastille provides unparalleled situational awareness to security threats and anomalous behavior contained across the full wireless spectrum within the enterprise.

“We are honored to be recognized by Red Herring as one of the top 100 private companies in North America,” said Chris Risley, CEO, Bastille. “This esteemed industry award speaks to the importance of our ongoing work and will only fuel our mission to continue protecting enterprises across the globe from IoT threats.” 

Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work. 

“In 2016, selecting the top achievers was extremely difficult,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The variety, depth, disruption and traction we saw from the early stage companies to those with significant scale made it one of the toughest vintages to judge. The North America winners are representative of the amazing ecosystem that never ceases to astound, with new and experienced entrepreneurs continuing to push the barriers of innovation. As one of the winners, Bastille should be proud of its accomplishment under such strong competition.”

Bastille is the first company to detect and mitigate the rapidly emerging threats to the enterprise that are the unintended consequence of the Internet of Things. Bastille helps enterprise security teams protect corporate airspace by scanning the entire radio frequency (RF) spectrum, gaining visibility into devices that operate on more than 100 distinct protocols.
