March 07, 2016

Santa Clara, CA — Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Centrify 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 listalso 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.

The Centrify Channel Partner Network is a global network of value-added resellers, system integrators and distributors. It helps partners to achieve growth and profit by delivering unified identity management solutions that help customers strengthen security, meet compliance requirements, reduce IT expenses, and extend cloud and mobile technologies across the enterprise.

“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.”

“Centrify’s growing channel ecosystem allows us to deliver vital security solutions to a high-growth market,” said Nathan Adams, director of global channels at Centrify. “Our channel partners recognize the need to secure enterprise identities against cyberthreats that target today’s hybrid IT environment of cloud, mobile and on-premises. The Centrify Identity Platform protects against the leading point of attack used in data breaches ― compromised credentials — by securing an enterprise’s internal and external users, as well as privileged accounts.”

The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100
