SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named McAfee 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.
McAfee Endpoint Security is a modern, integrated endpoint security platform designed to simplify and enable a more advanced approach to endpoint protection. It uses a single agent and management console to deliver integrated, advanced defenses like machine learning analysis, containment, behavioral monitoring and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). This serves to simplify management while delivering a united defense in depth against ransomware, fileless malware and zero-day threats. Working together, multiple technologies help prevent and detect malware, not only by how it looks but also by how it behaves so that sophisticated threats designed to evade detection are better unmasked and thwarted.
“The core elements of today’s businesses, both large and small, depend upon robust and reliable cybersecurity solutions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Unprecedented streams of data, the sweeping transition to cloud computing, vast networks of wireless systems, the rapidly growing Internet of Things—all these advances necessitate increasingly complex and adaptive security measures. CRN’s 2018 Security 100 list recognizes top vendors that are meeting this extraordinary demand with the most innovative security technologies on the market, enabling businesses to grow uninterrupted.”
“The endpoint continues to be an increasingly important point of visibility and control as IT professionals build and evaluate their defensive strategies,” said Richard Steranka, head of global channel sales and operations, McAfee. “We’re committed to enabling our customers with leading device protection against the latest threats like ransomware and fileless malware while helping them to be more operationally efficient and be able to respond to threats faster.”
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
