PRESS RELEASE 

 

Cyren Recognized on CRN’s 2018 Security 100 List

 

McLean, VA – March 6, 2018 – Cyren (NASDAQ: CYRN) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Cyren to its annual Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Security Analytics; and Web, Email and Application Security. The companies on CRN’s Security 100 list 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 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.

 

Recognized in the Web, Email and Application Security category of this year’s CRN Security 100, Cyren integrates several important internet security capabilities—web security, email security, email archiving, DNS security and cloud sandboxing—on a single globally-operated security-as-a-service platform. All SaaS services offered on the Cyren Cloud Security platform have been developed from the ground up as a partner-friendly multi-tenant cloud offering that flexibly allows provisioning and multi-level administration by Cyren MSP and reseller partners. Cyren’s platform operates at cloud scale, processing over 25 billion transactions and blocking 300 million threats daily.  

 

“The core elements of today’s businesses, both large and small, depend upon robust and reliable cybersecurity solutions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Unprecedented streams of data, the sweeping transition to cloud computing, vast networks of wireless systems, the rapidly growing Internet of Things—all these advances necessitate increasingly complex and adaptive security measures. CRN’s 2018 Security 100 list recognizes top vendors that are meeting this extraordinary demand with the most innovative security technologies on the market, enabling businesses to grow uninterrupted.”

 

“Cyren is honored to be named to CRN’s Security 100 list as one of the most innovative security companies in the Web, Email and Application Security category,” said Mickey DiPietro, SVP Sales at Cyren. “Cyren has a strong commitment to the channel, and our partners know that they can be successful and keep customers secure using Cyren’s 100% SaaS services to stop cyber threats before they reach users.”

 

The Security 100 list will be featured in the April 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
