Personal Privacy Solution Named A Finalist For The Red Herring 2012 Global Awards

Recognizing that vendors can serve the needs of online consumers while still responding to the urgent privacy concerns of regulators and security advocates, LLC is named to a prestigious list of the world's top private technology ven

Vancouver, BC (I-Newswire) November 20, 2012 - -- A provider of privacy solutions for consumers interacting online, LLC, announced today it has been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 Global award, a prestigious list selected from the world's most promising private technology ventures.

"In only our second full year of operation, this recognition provides us with valuable exposure that will further support business development and help identify potential growth capital," says Steven McAuley, CEO of ControlBox, who continues to build on the momentum following the good news earlier this year when took an equity stake in the company in support of ControlBox's Privacy Shield ™ and made the product available throughout the U.S.

From a worldwide pool of more than 900 companies Red Herring's experts have conducted an extensive assessment of every submission. The judges have scrutinized each product and business model and evaluated the potential of each product. McAuley says this distinction is an endorsement of the vision and hard work that was recognized in the spring when the company was named a finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 Americas award.

"When individuals are looking to buy, sell or connect online, we allow them to take control of their interactions because ControlBox masks phone numbers and email addresses; the personal contact information," adds McAuley.

Sharon Polsky, the President of the Privacy and Access Council of Canada, cautions that it is common for emails to contain personal information on the people we associate with, where we go, the prescriptions we take and our legitimate business transactions.

"The security of our digital economy and our democratic freedoms rely on privacy of transactional information - and email addresses and phone numbers deserve equal treatment," says Polsky.

"Sending email or making a phone call that traverses the Internet is never an invitation to capture personal information - whether email addresses or phone numbers."

The Red Herring Top 100 Global forum and award ceremony will be held in Los Angeles on November 27-29.
