Zend Named Winner of 2013 Red Herring Top 100

Visionary Tech Award Honors Top 100 Companies Poised for Rapid Growth

Cupertino, Calif., May 30, 2013 – Global media company and leading technology industry news source Red Herring has honored Zend, the PHP Company, with the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award. Zend was selected from a field of over 1,000 candidates for its innovation in end-to-end solutions that help companies develop and deliver high-quality mobile and Web applications.

The Red Herring list, which recognizes best-in-class technology startups, honors the year's most promising private tech companies. In order to select winners, Red Herring looks past the "buzz" to hone in on the companies that not only have promising business models, but are positioned for rapid growth. Zend was judged based on a written submission, interview and due-diligence follow-up.

"The finalists list confirms the excellent choices made by entrepreneurs and VCs and the start-ups' solid roots in corporate America, embracing their innovations. By all metrics, it emphasizes the United States' entrepreneurial excellence," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring, at the recent awards ceremony in Monterey, CA. 

"We're excited to be recognized for our hard work in providing what development teams need to build and deliver best-in-class applications for Web, mobile and cloud environments," said Zend CMO Elaine Lennox. "We continue to accelerate our growth in 2013, with inbound interest in Zend Server having doubled since the launch of our newest version, Zend Server 6 in February. This Red Herring award offers timely recognition of Zend's momentum."

The PHP language now powers 75 percent of the Web, according to Google, with Netcraft measuring adoption at over 240 million apps and websites powered by PHP. Zend not only helped establish the PHP language, but is changing how companies build and run their mobile and web apps. With Zend Server, the leading application platform for mobile and web apps, companies can enable their development and operations teams to collaborate effectively and release high-quality applications faster, while avoiding the most common causes of application failure.
