CB Insights today named Blue Hexagon to the fifth annual AI 100 ranking, showcasing the 100 most promising private artificial intelligence companies in the world. Blue Hexagon, a leading agentless cloud-native AI platform, is one of the two cybersecurity companies to be named in the AI 100 ranking two years in a row.

Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the AI 100 from a pool of more than 6,000 companies based on several factors including patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.

“This is the fifth year CB Insights has recognized the most promising private artificial intelligence companies with the AI 100, and this is one of the most international groups we’ve ever seen with this year’s report spanning 18 industries, with companies working on everything from climate risk to accelerating drug research and development,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal.
