LOS ALTOS, Calif., March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Netskope, the leading cloud access security broker, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Netskope to its inaugural 2016 Security 100 list. This project recognizes the leading security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity and Access Management and Data Protection; Network Security; Security Information and Event Management (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.
Netskope is recognized for its leading cloud access security broker (CASB) platform, which gives IT the ability to find, understand, and secure cloud apps. Unlike other CASB vendors that fail to see all cloud app usage and data movement, the Netskope Active Platform empowers organizations to direct usage, protect sensitive data, defend against threats, and ensure compliance in real-time, on any device, for any cloud app, regardless of whether a user is accessing an app remotely or from a mobile device.
The Netskope Channel Partner Program offers businesses that look to differentiate themselves from traditional security solutions a unique opportunity to drive growth and profitability for their company. The program is designed to reward and support Netskope partners, offering them an exceptional revenue opportunity and their customers a solution to meet their needs.
"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."
"As a company committed to working with and supporting our channel partners, we are delighted to have been named to CRN's Security 100 List," said Gary Ochs, vice president of channel sales, Netskope. "We will continue to deepen our channel partner relationships and work with our partner network to ensure that enterprises around the world can safely enable the cloud for their workforce with the deepest visibility and real-time, actionable control over their cloud app ecosystem."
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
