Instart Logic selected as a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 Global Company

Palo Alto, CA — November 29, 2016 — Instart Logic, a company that makes mobile apps and websites fast and secure, today announced that Red Herring, a global media company, has selected it as a Top 100 Global company, an award recognizing the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia. The award celebrates these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work. 

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Instart Logic embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Instart Logic should be proud of its accomplishment.”

“We are thrilled and honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Manav Mital, CEO and founder of Instart Logic. “The biggest brands in the world are fast moving to our endpoint-aware application delivery platform for delivering fast and secure experiences to end users. I am extremely proud of the innovative technology and world-class team we are building at Instart Logic. We are disrupting the legacy Content Delivery Network market, and this award is tremendous recognition and validation of that fact.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.

This recognition is another testament to the market opportunity, customer traction, company growth and the caliber of the talent and culture of the organization at Instart Logic. Recent awards include Wealthfront’s annual list of career-launching companies, Stackworld’s Top 25 list, and #1 ranking on Business Insider’s list as the Best Startup to Work for in the U.S.
