Zscaler Named a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor

Sunnyvale, California, August 30, 2011

Zscaler, The Cloud Security Company, today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require. Zscaler’s global cloud security solutions integrate web, email and mobile security – as well as DLP – to provide advanced threat protection without the need to deploy hardware or software.

Enabling today’s strategic technologies – all while managing risk and controlling costs – is a challenge faced by businesses large and small. IT consumerization, Web 2.0 applications and a fully mobile workforce introduce a host of new security challenges that traditional, on-premise products can no longer address. Zscaler’s advanced threat protection – integrated and delivered in the cloud – has the scale, power and global enforcement to secure any user, on any device, anywhere in the world.

“Enabling customers with the tools and strategies to solve real business problems has always been a priority to solution providers. The market has grown increasingly competitive over the years; so too has the demand for innovative, channel-friendly technologies.” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “From the cloud to semantic technology, this year’s list of Emerging Technology Vendors highlights the emphasis on innovation and ease of use that has been the hallmark of any successful channel offering.”

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2005 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy. Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information.

“We are proud to be named as one of this year’s CRN Emerging Technology Vendors, and understand the importance of this list in providing resellers with the confidence they need to expand their offerings to the cloud,” Said Lane Bess, COO and EVP of WW Sales at Zscaler. “This award—combined with our recent recognition by Gartner as an innovation leader—assures partners that they are stepping forward with the right cloud security vendor.”
