vArmour, the data centre and cloud security company and leader in application-aware micro-segmentation with advanced security analytics, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named vArmour 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.

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.

vArmour delivers the industry’s first distributed security system that provides application-aware micro-segmentation with advanced security analytics. As built in software, vArmour DSS Distributed Security System is architected to scale security across multi-clouds with deep insight and control of individual workloads. With its patented application-aware micro-segmentation capabilities, vArmour DSS moves security controls that were traditionally at the perimeter down next to each asset, wrapping fine-grained protection around every workload, regardless of where it resides. Workload-level visibility and control of inbound, outbound, and lateral traffic patterns from vArmour DSS helps organizations detect and prevent application misuse, policy violations, and advanced persistent threats across complex multi-cloud environments from a single system.

“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.”

“Micro-segmentation combined with security analytics has emerged as a key strategy for protecting assets inside virtualised and cloud environments. Organizations can segment off their most sensitive data, like patient and financial records, by wrapping security controls around each of these workloads,” said Tim Eades, CEO, vArmour. “Our Distributed Security System is helping channel partners across the globe solve their customers’ security challenges and drive significant revenue opportunities as these customers transform and secure their digital business.”
