STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Protegrity announced that CRN® has named the company to its 2017 Big Data 100 list. This annual list recognizes the ingenuity of tech suppliers bringing to market innovative offerings for harnessing the increasingly huge amounts of data generated in today’s digital world, raising the bar for data management and challenging established IT practices.
Protegrity was included in the “10 Coolest Data Protection and Security Analytics Software Vendors” category, which recognizes companies developing big data software that use analytics and other techniques to protect and secure data from misuse and attacks.
Last month Protegrity announced the worldwide availability of Protegrity 7, a data-centric security platform designed to help data-driven organizations realize the full potential value of their data while protecting it throughout the enterprise and cloud. With Protegrity 7, data security leaders can define, implement, and monitor data security policies with unprecedented scale, agility and flexibility to enable all data users to leverage their valuable data assets safely and securely.
“Businesses everywhere are faced with managing information streams of unprecedented volume and complexity, requiring more powerful and efficient tools than ever before for capturing, storing, organizing, securing and analyzing data,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN is pleased to present the 2017 Big Data 100, a list of vendors whose ingenuity and creative problem-solving have introduced remarkable new ways to help solution providers tackle this mammoth task. Congratulations to these Big Data aces, who have not only kept pace with the rapidly evolving demands of the data management field, but also innovated and challenged the status quo.”
“Data today is more than power – it is the lifeblood of the organization and needs to flow to the right data owners in real-time,” said Protegrity CEO Suni Munshani. “If it can’t be mined and manipulated at or near real-time while still maintaining security and privacy, it’s not delivering maximum value. As a company that helps its clients secure their most sensitive data across the enterprise and in the cloud, we are proud to be recognized in CRN’s 2017 Big Data 100 List.”
