KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named KnowBe4 to its annual Security 100 list. This list recognizes leading IT channel security vendors. A panel of respected CRN editors compiled this list, recognizing channel-focused security vendors across five technology categories: Identity Management and Data Protection; Endpoint Security; Network Security; Web, Email and Application Security; and SIEM, Risk and Threat Intelligence.
As security continues to be a top concern for customers of all sizes, this year’s Security 100 honorees bring a combination of channel focus, cutting-edge technology and outstanding partner benefits to solution providers. It’s why this list also serves as a guide for solution providers, helping them to identify the top security vendors to team with as they provide innovative solutions to their customers.
“CRN’s Security 100 list identifies leading companies who provide the IT channel with innovation in a number of security areas that stand up to a wide range of threats and risks”, said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Security is arguably the single most important factor in business today, and these companies are creating the building blocks for the most advanced cybertechnology security solutions."
“We are delighted to be included on this year’s Security 100 list by CRN,” said Tony Jennings, SVP global channel and international sales, KnowBe4. “Our focus over the last year has been on driving channel marketing throughout the organization while demonstrating the value of marketing to and through our partners. It is nice to stand out amongst the crowded and complex security vendor market with the recognition of being included on this list.”
The 2021 Security 100 list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
