Bitdefender, a leading Internet security technology company protecting 500 million users worldwide, has been named to the inaugural CRN 2016 Security 100 List for creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to a vibrant channel of solution providers.
The Security 100 List launched this year by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, recognizes 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.
Besides 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 helps prospective channel partners identify the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.
Bitdefender’s Partner Advantage Network (PAN) works with partners around the world to deliver the company’s world-leading Internet security technology, backing them with comprehensive support, a global reputation for excellence, integrated tools and lifetime recurrent and protected revenues.
“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.”
“Bitdefender has reached a critical momentum in recent years, winning recognition for the quality and ease of use of its products,” said Thierry Benchetrit, Bitdefender's Director of North American Channel Sales. “The showing has been particularly strong in the enterprise space, with a series of awards for innovation. So it’s deeply satisfying to see Bitdefender make the inaugural Security 100 List for the importance it places on channel partners.”
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and online at crn.com/security100.
