Woburn, MA — November 8, 2021 — Kaspersky announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company to its 2021 Edge Computing 100 list. This recognition, selected by a panel of respected CRN® editors, distinguishes leading vendors whose technology in areas such as Infrastructure and Cloud; 5G, IoT and Edge Services; Software, and Security provide the building blocks channel partners need to build next-generation intelligent edge solutions that bring data collection and processing closer to users.
With the rising importance of business intelligence and data analytics, the ability to quickly collect and process that data is becoming a key differentiator for businesses of all sizes. At the same time, the need to expand corporate networks to encompass larger numbers of remote and hybrid workers makes securing the edge even more critical.
The second-annual CRN Edge Computing 100 list spotlights the vendors leading the way in providing channel partners with the technology needed to build next-generation, intelligent edge solutions that ultimately bring data collection and processing closer to users.
Kaspersky’s continued efforts to build its portfolio of subscription based services has offered unparalleled insights into advanced persistent threat actor activities. In the last year, Kaspersky has responded to the increase in targeted attacks in the Enterprise and SMB space by adding EDR functionality and MDR services. These offerings, in addition to the company’s high performing endpoint solutions, continue to help organizations detect and defend against today’s complex threats.
“We are thrilled to be recognized on CRN’s 2021 Edge Computing 100 List for the second consecutive year,” said Randall Richard, head of enterprise sales at Kaspersky North America. “As we continue to place a strong focus on our threat intelligence offerings and solutions in the enterprise space, we’re excited to offer our customers even more industry leading products and services to help keep them safe from cyberattacks.”
“CRN’s 2021 Edge Computing 100 list returns this year to recognize the leaders bringing the technology required for channel partners to build unique edge solutions that empower businesses to work better and smarter,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The contributions of these innovators continue to pave the way for the IT channel to deliver bold, progressive, and trusted offerings to its customers.”
The 2021 Edge Computing 100 list will be featured in a special November issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.crn.com/edge100.
