CAMPBELL, Calif. – March 8, 2016 – Forescout Technologies Inc., the pioneer in agentless cybersecurity, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Forescout to its inaugural 2016 Security 100 list, in the category of Network Security. This honor recognizes the coolest security vendors in five areas: 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.
With more than eight billion connected devices expected to be deployed within an enterprise or industrial control environment in the next four years, the prospect of an Internet of Things based security breach increases by the day. In fact, research company IDC forecasts that two-thirds of all enterprises are likely to suffer this type of attack within the next two years. Forescout is the security solution that can see, control and secure devices the instant it is on the network.
“As enterprises continue to leverage the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT), their networks’ attack surfaces become larger, and therefore increasingly vulnerable,” said Tom Evans, Vice President of Channels at Forescout. “This recognition from The Channel Company is testament to the growing severity of this issue. Forescout continues to lead the charge to provide enterprises with instant visibility into their networks, and as we move forward, we will look to our partners to help us deliver on our vision of securing the Internet of Things.”
“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. ”The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
