DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optiv Security, the world’s leading security solutions integrator, today announced that for the second consecutive year, it has ranked as the top pure-play security company on The Channel Company’s 2018 CRN SP500. Optiv placed No. 26 on this year’s list, up from its No. 27 position in 2017. The SP500 is an annual ranking of the largest technology integrators, solution providers and IT consultants in North America by revenue.
“Enterprises today are caught in a vicious circle where new threats beget new technology purchases, which then adds exponential complexity to the already accelerating cost and complexity issues that further degrade security and business agility,” said Peter Evans, Optiv’s chief marketing officer. “Optiv enables clients to break out of this vicious circle. Instead of taking an ‘outside-in’ approach to security where external threats, vulnerabilities, and compliance mandates dictate security spend and strategy, Optiv takes an inside-out approach that first balances business requirements with enterprise risk, and then builds on this risk-centric foundation with infrastructure rationalization, operations optimization and ongoing measurement. Our position as the top security solutions integrator for the second year in a row on the CRN SP500 underscores the market need for our unique approach, and recognizes Optiv’s role in changing how enterprises ensure security and resilience.”
“CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list spotlights the North American IT channel partner organizations that have earned the highest revenue over the past year, providing a valuable resource to vendors looking for top solution providers with which to partner,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The companies on this year’s list represent an incredible, combined revenue of $320 billion, a sum that attests to their success in staying ahead of rapidly changing market demands. We extend our sincerest congratulations to each of these top-performing solution providers and look forward to their future pursuits and successes.”
