MANILA —┬áTrillium Inc, a leading automotive cyber security solutions provider, has received the prestigious Red Herring Top 100 Asia 2017 award acknowledging the potential of its CSAAS (Cyber Security as a Service) business model and advanced SecureIoT cyber security suite.

The Top 100 Asia award, presented at Red Herring’s 2017 Asia summit in Manila, underscores Trillium’s position as a world leading provider of transportation safety and information security systems. “We are humbled by this honor and proud to be recognized for the many years of dedicated research and development by our global engineering team,” said Trillium’s CEO, David M. Uze.

“For decades, and still today, Red Herring has been the divining rod for identifying successful start-up companies in their early years. We are honored to be identified by Red Herring’s leadership as a potential future unicorn success story,” said Dr. Sachio Semmoto, Trillium’s Chairman.

“Trillium’s cutting-edge technology and novel business approach represent exactly the type of company for which the Red Herring 100 award was intended — ready to disrupt through innovative technology and compelling go-to-market strategy. We look forward to following Trillium’s progress over the coming years,” said Alex Vieux, Red Herring CEO.

Established in 1996, Red Herring’s Top 100 is recognized as one of the high-tech industry’s most respected awards. Top 100 Award winners are judged on the basis of 20 criteria, including disruptiveness in respective markets, social contributions, growth rates, technological advantages, and team composition and experience.

The Red Herring recognition follows on Trillium’s success as a technology sponsor in the Car Hacking Village at DEF CON, Las Vegas. SecureCAR, Trillium’s in-vehicle-network protection platform, successfully defended vehicular message streams from more than 700 systematic hacker attacks over three days. Not one hacker at DEF CON 25 could compromise Trillium’s robust, multi-layer software-based cyber-security solution.
