Pirus Networks is the clear leader of the pack, jumping up two places to take the new number one spot.

Our reason for elevating the Pirus Maniacs is twofold. Insiders at the company inform us it has just signed an extra $10 million in funding from a U.S./Japanese venture fund, Jafco Ventures, which is impressive in an environment where financing is tight.

The company is also rumored to be signing a deal with a U.S. bank that’s been trailing its PSX-1000 multiprotocol SAN switch. This is a big deal for Pirus, as it plans to go head-to-head with Brocade Communications Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: BRCD) and will need a major customer endorsing its technology to get its foot in the door with other customers (especially those already signed up with Brocade).
