ROCKVILLE, Md., March 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Micro Focus announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named NetIQ, the security portfolio of Micro Focus, to its inaugural 2016 Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity and Access Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Threat Detection; and Web and Application Security.
The companies in CRN's Security 100 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 also 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.
Micro Focus products are designed to meet the challenges that organizations face in managing the evolving and complex security landscape of today. There is a continued need to balance extremely convenient access to information and resources employees demand, with proper protection of organizations' sensitive information.
"Security solutions are more essential than ever to the health and sustainability of every business, large or small," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "The frequency and complexity of IT security threats have vastly increased in recent years, requiring rapid innovation and an incisive, forward-thinking defense strategy. The importance of having expertly secured networks, software, hardware, applications and databases cannot be overstated. Our Security 100 list honors those tech suppliers at the forefront of this field for their contributions to the advancement of the channel and to the IT market at large."
"Our approach to identity provides the critical element to balancing convenience and security in today's complex, always-on, cloud and legacy IT environment," said Travis Greene, senior identity and access solutions strategist for Micro Focus. "Micro Focus solutions supply context for business leaders to properly evaluate access requests and certifications at the speed they need to remain agile and productive, while consistently provisioning and deprovisioning identities and access across even the most complex environments. Organizations should look to tap into the power that identity delivers in driving their productivity and ability to quickly and efficiently adopt new technologies without unnecessary cost and risk to the organization."
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
