Paris – December 7, 2012 – Intersec, a leading value-added software provider for mobile and convergent operators, has been recognised by two leading organisations, Red Herring Global 100 and the Deloitte Fast 500™ EMEA, for its innovation, technology and growth in the mobile and telecommunications industry. The awards further confirm Intersec’s position as one of the world’s fastest growing and innovative companies whose Location-based, Loyalty Management and Messaging solutions are trusted by some of the world’s leading mobile operators, including Orange, Maroc Telecom, MTS, and major network equipment vendors Alcatel-Lucent, Nokia Siemens Network, and Ericsson.
The Red Herring Global 100 recognition follows on from Intersec’s success in the Top 100 Europe award in April 2012, and acknowledges the leading private companies and entrepreneurs across the globe. The award was judged by the Red Herring editorial staff who evaluated the award contenders on both quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, technological innovation, management strength, business strategy, customer acquisition, marketing strategy and international potential.
Intersec was selected for the accolade by Red Herring from more than a thousand of the most cutting edge private technology companies in Asia, North America and Europe. Previous winners of the award include Google, Yahoo!, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay.
“Intersec has demonstrated its capacity to answer the telco community’s needs by offering solutions adopted by the industry’s giants throughout the globe. Its list of customers grows on a quarterly basis and represents the elite of the sector. The growth of Intersec, its technology, homogeneity and the orchestration of its strategy by the management are paying off as 2011 and 2012’s financial results testify” commented Alex Vieux, CEO of the Red Herring. “For these reasons, the jury has unanimously selected Intersec for the Red Herring Global Top 100, confirming its previous decision and choice for the Red Herring Europe.”
Intersec have also been acknowledged for the second consecutive year in the annual Deloitte Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) group’s 2012 Technology Fast 500 ™ EMEA rankings.
