Woburn, MA – March 6, 2018 – Kaspersky Lab North America announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Kaspersky Lab to its third annual Security 100 list for endpoint 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.
The CRN Security 100 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. 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 – like Kaspersky Lab – that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.
With the total impact of a data breach in North America on average amounting to $1.3M for enterprises and $117K per incident for SMBs, endpoint security is a critical factor of the security strategy for all businesses. Kaspersky Lab’s flagship endpoint security offering, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, is a scalable, fully integrated, tiered endpoint security platform that allows organizations to protect against known, unknown and advanced threats. The unique combination of big data threat intelligence with machine learning and human expertise enables true, agile protection against any kind of cyberthreat a business may face.
“The core elements of today’s businesses, both large and small, depend upon robust and reliable cybersecurity solutions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Unprecedented streams of data, the sweeping transition to cloud computing, vast networks of wireless systems, the rapidly growing Internet of Things—all these advances necessitate increasingly complex and adaptive security measures. CRN’s 2018 Security 100 list recognizes top vendors that are meeting this extraordinary demand with the most innovative security technologies on the market, enabling businesses to grow uninterrupted.”
“We are honored to once again be recognized by CRN in the Security 100 list for our industry leading endpoint security technology available through the channel,” said Jason Stein, vice president of channel, Kaspersky Lab North America. “Our endpoint security solution delivers a comprehensive, multi-layered platform with easy, centralized management and powerful control tools so that businesses can secure corporate data and every layer of their IT network.”
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
