Zscaler Recognized on CRN’s 2017 Security 100 List
Leading Cloud Security Company Named As One of the Top 25 Coolest Network Security Companies
San Jose, California, April 18, 2017
Zscaler, Inc., the leading cloud security company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the maker of the Zscaler™ cloud security platform to its annual Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security. The companies on CRN's Security 100 list have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.
In addition to 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 aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.
Zscaler was recognized as one of the top 25 coolest companies in the Network Security category. Founded in 2008, Zscaler operates the world’s largest multi-tenant security cloud supporting more than 5,000 organizations and processing more than 30 billion internet requests a day.
As workforces become increasingly distributed, accessing applications on the move and in the cloud, so the security controls that protect those users need to be in the cloud. Zscaler saw the need to shift from the construct of network based access controls to software defined policy, a particularly complimentary approach to other top IT initiatives like implementing Office 365, SD-WAN enabled branch office breakouts, or transitioning enterprise applications to the cloud.
“Zscaler is honored to be named to CRN’s Security 100 list as well as be recognized as one of the coolest companies in Network Security,” said Atri Chatterjee, CMO at Zscaler. “Corporate users are moving off the network; they are mobile. They are accessing applications and services in the cloud. This means the internet really is the new corporate network. Zcaler helps companies protect their users, no matter where they are or what device they are on.”
“In an age of cyberattacks and heightened concerns about cybercrime against businesses of all sizes, protecting data has become a top priority, and security solutions are in higher demand than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s annual Security 100 list honors the expert technology suppliers at the forefront of this thriving field, and supports solution providers in their search for the right vendor partners to help them leverage the rich business opportunities it offers.”
