DENVER, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuvant, the only research-driven information security partner delivering alignment, clarity and confidence to enterprise clients, announced today that it has been named the Top Technology Practice in Security by Everything Channel, the premier provider of IT channel-focused events, media, research, consulting, and sales and marketing services. The company was recognized as part of the 16th annual VAR500 list, which ranks North America's top technology integrators, of which Accuvant placed No. 199.
"We are honored to be named this year's 'Top Technology Practice in Security,' which underscores how incredibly talented our employees are and their success in delivering security solutions to our clients," said Dan Wilson, vice president of strategic alliances for Accuvant. "We are also thrilled to once again be named to the VAR500 list, and to have increased our ranking year-over-year. Over the past five years, Accuvant has experienced more than 700 percent revenue growth, which we believe is a direct result of our outstanding client service, deeply knowledgeable employees and award-winning manufacturer relationships."
Finalists for the Top Technology Practice in Security award, which is one of only nine technology practice awards given by Everything Channel this year, were selected by an editorial panel comprised of executives, journalists and industry experts who nominated solution providers with security expertise from the VAR500 list. Accuvant was selected as the winner based on its outstanding year-over-year growth combined with the superior technology consulting and service offerings it provides to its clients. Accuvant's accomplishment will be recognized during the VAR500/CIO 50 Awards Dinner, held at Cipriani Wall Street, on June 8, 2010.
"Accuvant is a true expert in providing solutions and services to clients with information security needs," said Alex Thurber, senior vice president, worldwide channels for McAfee. "This award from Everything Channel recognizes Accuvant's outstanding performance, and it's that same level of performance that led McAfee to name Accuvant our 2009 North American Partner of the Year. We look forward to continued strong results from Accuvant in the future."
"The VAR500 is the who's who of the solution provider community. Juniper Networks, F5 Networks and McAfee are just a few of the leading security technology manufacturers who rely on the VAR 500 to sell their products to businesses," said Kelley Damore, vice president, editorial director, Everything Channel. "Even more importantly, they solve customers' biggest IT business problems through product integration, training, consulting and services. In companies large and small, the VAR 500 are considered integration experts, trusted business advisors and invaluable partners. We are honored to compile this list and represent this audience."
