Zscaler Named by CRN as a 2014 Emerging Vendor
San Jose, California, July 21, 2014
Zscaler, the Internet security company, today announced that the company has been recognized by CRN as a 2014 Emerging Vendor. The list identifies rising technology vendors introducing new, innovative products that are changing the technology landscape and creating numerous opportunities for channel partners in North America.
“IT Security is a $33 billion per year market; the inexorable march toward cloud computing, mobility and the Internet of things coupled with the ever increasing threat landscape is driving rapid adoption of Zscaler’s Security-as-a-Service platform by enterprises and governments worldwide,” said Craig Hicks-Frazer, VP of global channels at Zscaler. “Our channel partners are enjoying tremendous growth and rapidly building highly profitable ongoing revenue streams by working with Zscaler to deliver the world’s best Internet security to their clients.”
The world of IT security has undergone tremendous transformation, sparked by the consumerization of the enterprise, the adoption of cloud computing and the evolution of the sources of threats from hackers to organized crime and governments. While traditional security appliances were developed in a time when none of this existed, Zscaler’s modern cloud security platform enables businesses to embrace these innovations securely, while delivering a superior user experience. Just as cloud applications transformed the market for CRM, Zscaler and its partners are transforming the market for Internet security.
“Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “We congratulate 2014’s Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel.”
The vendors included for the award were founded in 2008 or later and maintain an active North American channel program. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2014 issue and will also be available online at www.crn.com.
