Santa Clara, Calif., (Mar, 21st 2016) – Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), the leader in traffic visibility solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Gigamon 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.
For Gigamon, the network is the new battleground. And with a new battleground comes the need for a new security approach. Built on pervasive network visibility, the GigaSECURE® Security Delivery Platform is changing the game as well as the way enterprises, service providers, and governments view and apply security. Designed to improve the efficacy of existing security infrastructures, GigaSECURE filters and feeds traffic and metadata to pure-play security tools giving them the visibility they need (i.e. the right information at the right time) so they can be better and faster at what they do: detect, respond, analyze, and protect.
“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.”
“Gigamon created and continues to lead the network traffic visibility market because we continue to innovate,” says Barbara Spicek, Vice President of Channel Sales at Gigamon. “Being named to the CRN Security 100 validates our well-established visibility technology, its updated and indispensable applicability to security, and Gigamon's position as the industry’s first solution provider in what we believe should be considered a new and emerging category of security defense: the security delivery platform.”
The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
