CAMPBELL, Calif. — March 7, 2017 — Skyhigh Networks (McAfee MVISION Cloud), the world’s leading Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), announced today CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Skyhigh to its annual Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security. The companies on CRN’s Security 100 list 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 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.
This year marks an IT tipping point in which a majority of enterprise computing resources will move to the cloud, making cloud security a top area of investment for organizations. Since introducing the industry’s first CASB five years ago and helping define the cloud security conversation since, Skyhigh’s technology continues to set the standard for security, compliance and governance for all cloud applications across software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms. Skyhigh was named a leader in the first-ever Forrester Wave for CASB and counts more than 40 percent of the Fortune 500 as its customers.
“In an age of cyberattacks and heightened concerns about cybercrime against businesses of all sizes, protecting data has become a top priority, and security solutions are in higher demand than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s annual Security 100 list honors the expert technology suppliers at the forefront of this thriving field, and supports solution providers in their search for the right vendor partners to help them leverage the rich business opportunities it offers.”
“Cloud Access Security Brokers or CASBs have quickly become the #1 security technology as organizations in all industries – from financial services to manufacturing to the public sector – rapidly embrace the cloud,” says Kristin Carnes, VP of Channels and Business Development, Skyhigh Networks. “Skyhigh is 100% commited to the channel and thrilled to work with our partners to provide our joint customers with a single pane of glass to enforce their security and compliance policies across thousands of cloud services across SaaS, PaaS and IaaS.”
