I'm thrilled to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Contrast Security, the first company to enable self-protecting software, to its 2017 Emerging Vendors list in the Security category. This list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers that are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations.
In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology, like Contrast Security. This year, for the first time, the list is divided into seven categories: Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Networking/VoIP, Internet of Things and Storage.
For Contrast Security, this validates our strong global commitment to the channel of solution providers. At Contrast, we're passionate about helping our customers secure operational models allowing more innovation. We believe partners are an extension of our team, playing an essential role in helping customers become and stay secure. Our partners are integral to delivering the end-to-end application security solutions in today’s software-driven world.
In the CRN press release, Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, said:
