"The 2012 Bully Award winners were selected for innovation and excellence in the TMT sector. They are leaders in their field, with meaningful business propositions and market strategies, driven by a rich understanding of customer needs and technological solutions,” stated Farley Duvall, Chairman and founder of White Bull Summits.
“We’re honoured to be named a 2012 Bully Award winner, and to be recognized as one of the leading TMT companies in Europe,” stated Valerio Pastore, Chairman. “It’s validating to be named a winner for this prestigious award, and we accept and share it with the entire Boole Server company and community.”
Boole Server is a Unified Data Centric Protection solution that enables organisations to protect and share sensitive data (files, emails and text) without losing control of them. Whereas old-style security focuses on securing storage, transmission, end points & perimeters, Boole Server secures the data itself, wherever it is and however it is used.
“The White Bull judges very carefully reviewed seed-stage, early-stage and growth-stage companies, and selected the winning companies they believe have demonstrated clear potential for further growth and a high probability for exit in the next few years,” added Duvall.
White Bull has a highly successful track record in identifying Europe’s leading TMT companies. A number of previous Bully Award winners identified by White Bull were acquired in the past two years including BuyVIP (acquired by Amazon), JayCut (acquired by RIM), Q-go (acquired by RightNow Technologies)
