Los Altos, Calif. – March 6, 2017 – Contrast Security, the first company to enable self-protecting software, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named them to its annual Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security.
The companies on CRN's Security 100 list have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.
In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the IT security market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.
Contrast is fundamentally changing the way software is both produced and operated, delivering the only enterprise security product that fully integrates the ability to find and fix application vulnerabilities during development, and monitor/block application attacks in production, all within one unified environment. Contrast makes software self-protecting so it can continuously defend itself from vulnerabilities and attacks.
“In an age of cyberattacks and heightened concerns about cybercrime against businesses of all sizes, protecting data has become a top priority, and security solutions are in higher demand than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s annual Security 100 list honors the expert technology suppliers at the forefront of this thriving field, and supports solution providers in their search for the right vendor partners to help them leverage the rich business opportunities it offers.”
“As organizations compete to find the best solutions to address cybersecurity threats, Contrast is pioneering real-time vulnerability and self-protecting software,” said Mike Keating, Vice President of Sales at Contrast Security. “Being included on CRN's Security 100 List validates our commitment to meet the needs of DevOps environments and support software applications regardless of whether they’re in the cloud or containers, or on premise.”
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
