Kaspersky Lab North America announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Kaspersky Lab to its inaugural 2016 Security 100 list.

Named One of the Coolest Endpoint Security Vendors

Woburn, MA – March 10, 2016 – Kaspersky Lab North America announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Kaspersky Lab to its inaugural 2016 Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security 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.

The companies in CRN's Security 100 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.

“Kaspersky Lab’s expanded portfolio of advanced endpoint solutions, combined with our industry-leading threat intelligence, work together to provide the most advanced and comprehensive cybersecurity solutions on the market,” said Michael Canavan, vice president, engineering, Kaspersky Lab North America. “Customers are empowered to not only protect their sensitive data from today’s cyberthreats, but are also prepared to respond to the threat landscape of tomorrow.”

Kaspersky Lab recently announced a major expansion of its enterprise security product portfolio. New offerings include the Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform, a highly sophisticated solution designed to detect targeted attacks, and a range of Security Intelligence Services, including penetration testing, cybersecurity training and threat intelligence sharing. The Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform is a fully integrated solution that includes network, web and e-mail sensors as well as a Targeted Attack Analyzer and Sandbox engines. A premium solution, it is based on Kaspersky Lab’s expertise in the detection and analysis of the world’s most sophisticated cyber-threats.

Kaspersky Lab endpoint security solutions recently received significant industry recognition:

  • For the third year in a row, Kaspersky Lab has claimed the leading spot in the TOP3 metric for Internet security, scoring more top-three placements than any other vendor in comprehensive independent testing throughout 2015. This honor further proves that Kaspersky Lab security solutions offer the very best protection from cyberthreats.
  • Kaspersky Lab was also positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms for the fifth year in a row. The evaluation was based on the criteria for both “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute.”

In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list also 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.

“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.”
