PHOENIX, March 14, 2016 – BeyondTrust, the leading cyber security company dedicated to preventing privilege misuse and stopping unauthorized access, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named BeyondTrust 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.

According to CRN, vendors named to the 2016 Security 100 list have demonstrated creativity and innovation in IT security 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 by identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.

“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.”

“CRN sets the beat for what’s happening in the channel industry, so inclusion in the Security 100 list is a great honor,” said Joseph Schramm, VP of Strategic Alliances, BeyondTrust. “At BeyondTrust our best-in-class, unified privilege and vulnerability management solutions help to reduce attack surfaces and prevent data breaches. We are committed to developing strong partnerships across the channel, as well as with strategic technology and solution provider partners, to empower our customers to better manage risk.”

To enable the channel, BeyondTrust offers a partner program that provides levels of technical certification for product demonstration, proof-of-concept and implementation proficiency across the company’s core solution offerings, which include PowerBroker privileged access management and Retina enterprise vulnerability management. Additionally, the company’s channel chief, Joseph Schramm, has been hard at work developing a network of systems integrator and boutique consulting partners to help scale implementation services delivery to keep pace with accelerating revenue growth.

The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and is available online now at
