Selected among companies that are setting the agenda in an increasingly important market and are on the verge of disrupting an established market, and creating an entirely new market.
Sunnyvale, California, USA – February 23, 2011 — Cotendo has been included in the 2011 TR50, Technology Review’s annual list of the world’s most innovative technology companies, for its innovation in content acceleration technologies. In selecting the TR50, the editors of Technology Review look for companies that are setting the agenda in an increasingly important market, on the verge of disrupting an established market, or creating an entirely new market. Spanning energy, computing, the Web, biomedicine, and materials, the companies on the list are using their inventions to reshape their industries and to transform how we live.
"The more we rely on the Web, the more we need services that route data across the Internet very efficiently and securely, and services that make websites themselves run more smoothly for end users. Cotendo handles both elements," said Jason Pontin, Editor in Chief and Publisher.
Cotendo has pioneered numerous content acceleration technologies, such as PageSpeed Automatic, the first CDN-based web-page optimization engine, and its Unity platform, a revolutionary platform, which enables high-performance acceleration of any type of content paired with transparency, real-time control and ease of use for its customers. “This award is yet another manifestation of Cotendo’s commitment to provide ground-breaking and unique services enabling the acceleration of digital content from anywhere to anywhere,“ says Ronni Zehavi, CEO of Cotendo. “Our goal is to accelerate content and web applications so that our customers’ end users will get the best quality experience. We will continue to innovate and launch new services that will solve performance and scalability challenges of the web and beyond. Above all, we are honored to receive this award and are grateful to the MIT Technology Review team for recognizing our world-leading capabilities in this highly competitive sector.”
