San Jose, California, June 19, 2013

Zscaler, the industry’s leading secure Direct-to-Cloud Network provider for security and policy enforcement, today announced it has been named a 2013 Emerging Technology vendor by UBM Tech Channel’s CRN Magazine. The annual list highlights hot tech startups making an impact on the channel and impression on the tech industry as a whole. These up-and-coming technology vendors have recently introduced a new product or technology that is not only innovative, but generates the high margins solution providers require in today’s competitive marketplace.

“Zscaler was founded with the dream of securely enabling the benefits of mobility and cloud; today this dream is being realized over 10 million enterprise users who enjoy safe and fast Internet from any place, on any device,” said Jay Chaudhry, founder and CEO, Zscaler. “Zscaler is honored to be recognized as an ‘Emerging Vendor’ by CRN and is committed to continue delivering award-winning service to market.”

Zscaler partners with the world’s leading technology and channel providers to bring comprehensive solutions, services and support to our customers. Unlike traditional security appliance vendors, Zscaler is transforming the market for IT security with the industry’s only 100% cloud-delivered security solutions built from the ground up to securely enable businesses for mobility, cloud applications and social media.

“Any technology vendor can claim to offer innovative products and groundbreaking technology, but only a select group can truly impact the marketplace with their offerings,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “The companies named to the 2013 Emerging Vendor list offer solutions that deliver as promised while creating the high margins that solution providers demand. We congratulate all the vendors for their commitment to delivering technological innovations that map to the needs of the dynamic channel market.”

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2007 or later, and have revenue under $1 billion. To view the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit www.CRN.com. The list will also be featured in the August issue of CRN magazine.
