SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- WhiteHat Security, the leading provider of website risk management solutions, today announced that Everything Channel's CRN has named its flagship product family, WhiteHat Sentinel, one of the "100 Coolest Cloud Computing Products."  The Top 100 Cloud Computing products include 20 storage vendors, 20 security vendors, 20 productivity vendors, 20 infrastructure vendors and 20 platform vendors.  

The application layer continues to be at the forefront of new attacks, and will remain so as long as websites hosting personal and private information are freely accessible on the Internet.  Companies are increasingly challenged to maintain an effective security posture, for hundreds or even thousands of websites, in the face of this reality.  WhiteHat Security delivers the enterprise-class solutions and services they need to create a comprehensive website risk management program.  

WhiteHat Security is a website vulnerability management innovator with more than 1,500 websites under management worldwide.  WhiteHat Sentinel is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that uniquely combines advanced proprietary website scanning technology with expert analysis by WhiteHat Security Engineering, to deliver up-to-the-minute website vulnerability assessments with unparalleled accuracy.  With WhiteHat Sentinel, companies can employ state-of-the-art website security to address business-critical issues, without the burden of managing a complex infrastructure.

"The WhiteHat Sentinel platform provides significant cost and time savings for organizations, and consultants, as they work to maintain the integrity of websites and business assets," said Stephanie Fohn, chief executive officer, WhiteHat Security.  "Having Sentinel honored on CRN's "100 Coolest Cloud Computing Products" list along with other technology innovators is a testament to our efforts to provide customers, and our channel partners, with the tools they need to operationalize website security."

The list was based on nominations from Solution Providers rating technology, channel influence, effectiveness and visibility along with business and sales impact.  The final selections were made by a panel of Everything Channel Editors.

Winners were announced online at www.Channelweb.com and featured in the January 25 issue of CRN.
