PortAuthority Technologies, Inc.,™ the Authority in Information Leak Prevention (ILP), today announced that it has been honored with an “Emerging Technology Vendor” distinction by CMP Channel Group’s CRN, the magazine providing news analysis and perspective to the solution provider community.
As published in CRN’s Emerging Vendors issue, PortAuthority Technologies was highlighted in the Security Technology Sector for its technology that reliably stops leaks of data and confidential information over Web communications and network print jobs in real time. As a result of this honor, PortAuthority Technologies is included in CRN’s Emerging Vendors Directory, a list of 75 top companies recognized for bringing their solution-provider partners high margins by providing cutting-edge, low-cost, easy-to-use alternatives to standard industry solutions.
“Emerging vendors such as PortAuthority Technologies are critical to the growth of the IT channel,” said CRN Editor Heather Clancy. “They are the up-and-comers that have the potential to become the next generation of industry giants.”
Winning vendors were either nominated to the directory by solution-provider partners or recommended in the CRN Emerging Vendors Survey. The CRN editorial team then compiled the directory based on conversations with nominating partners and additional information provided by candidate companies.
