Tuxera Wins Red Herring Global 100 Award
Recognized as One of the Top Technology Growth Companies to Watch For

SUNNYVALE, CA – (January 31, 2011) — Tuxera, the leading provider of Windows and Mac compatible file systems for Android, Linux and other platforms, announced today it has been selected as a winner of the Red Herring Global 100 Award in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia.

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

“Choosing the best out of the previous three years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,200 potential companies to 200 finalists. Trying to get it down to 100 companies was a task upon itself. Tuxera should be extremely proud of its achievement, the competition was difficult.”

“We are very proud to be recognized one of the world’s top private technology growth companies,” said Mikko Välimäki, Tuxera CEO. “Tuxera’s best-in-class file system solutions are deployed at a growing pace across the globe, including the world’s largest consumer electronics manufacturers. The exceptionally fast growth and success we have achieved proves Tuxera is addressing critical customer needs and gaining traction as the industry leader. We look forward to extend our global reach and bring new innovations to the markets in 2011.”

The winners were announced at the conclusion of the Red Herring Global conference in Santa Monica, California after an extensive review of company submissions and their presentations to the editorial team. The assessment of potential included financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration as well as standing of other technology companies relative to their sector peers.
