SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hillstone Networks announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Hillstone Networks 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 list also 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.
Hillstone Networks offers a next-generation network security portfolio for the enterprise and data center networks that extends from the perimeter down to the virtual machine, across cloud, physical and virtual environments. Instead of relying on signatures, the company's firewall solutions use behavioral analytics and deep application awareness technologies. This innovative technology has won accolades and has recently been recommended by NSS Labs with the highest position on the Security Value Map™ (SVM).
“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.”
“It is an honor to be recognized by the Channel Company,” said Lingling Zhang, VP of Product and Marketing. “This year, we have been recognized repeatedly for the value and innovation that the Hillstone technology brings to the market, our channel partners and to our end users, and we look forward to continuing that commitment.”
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
