SAN FRANCISCO – June 5, 2013 – Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects one hundred award winners, among the 3,000 tech startups financed each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring keeps tabs on the up and comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, salesforce.com, YouTube, Marin Software, Palo Alto Networks and eBay.
“In 2013, selecting the Top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs have crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe MuleSoft embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. MuleSoft should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
“Customers’ integration pains are intensifying and legacy integration solutions are not able to solve the problems of the New Enterprise. As the innovator solving these problems, MuleSoft is well positioned as the next generation leader in this space,” said Greg Schott, president and CEO of MuleSoft. “This recognition by Red Herring is another validation of our achievements as we deliver on our vision to connect the New Enterprise.”
MuleSoft provides the most widely used integration platform to connect any application, data service or API, across the cloud and on-premise continuum. As SaaS, mobile and Big Data converge, enterprises face a choice: become overwhelmed by the resulting explosion of endpoints or seize the opportunity to gain competitive advantage. Companies can no longer compete with just the assets, technology and talent within their four walls. In the era of the New Enterprise, companies must combine an explosion of applications, data, partners and customers into a single, high performing entity. Founded on the idea that connecting applications should not be hard, MuleSoft helps organizations harness the power of their applications through integration. Delivered as a packaged integration experience that eliminates costly point-to-point code, MuleSoft”s Anypoint Platform combines Mule ESB, CloudHub and Anypoint Connectors with capabilities for API creation, publishing and management. Supporting billions of transactions per day, MuleSoft is used in production by global leaders in major industry verticals, including Walmart, MasterCard, Nokia, Nestlé and Honeywell, and powers integrations with leading SaaS vendors such as salesforce.com, NetSuite, Workday, Intuit and Box.
