PALO ALTO, Calif., July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Contrast Security, the next generation leader in finding vulnerabilities and blocking attacks on software applications, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Contrast Security to its 2016 list of Emerging Vendors. This annual list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list also serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.
Contrast Security provides the world's only application security software that quickly and accurately stops hackers from stealing data via web applications. Unlike legacy security products that do not properly protect applications, Contrast employs patented, deep security instrumentation to strengthen applications before they're deployed and defend them in production – an approach that provides necessary visibility throughout the application lifecycle. As a result, organizations can act faster against threats and immediately reduce their attack surface.
"The select group of companies on our Emerging Vendors list have already made a name for themselves in their short time in the IT community, introducing leading-edge technologies with the potential to transform their segments of the IT market," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "These tech suppliers are quickly making their mark on the industry and are the ones solution providers should watch in 2016."
"Our partners have an incredible opportunity to help their customers make the web safer from cybercrime. Receiving this award is a testament to our mission to provide fast, fully automated, accurate, and affordable application security technology," said Alan Naumann, president and CEO of Contrast Security. "We thank the editors at CRN for this acknowledgement as we revolutionize software security, enabling applications to protect themselves, and make the enterprise more secure."
