Cyphort Recognized By CRN As A 2015 Emerging Vendor

Up-and-Coming ATD Company Selected As A Cool Tech Startup Heating Up the IT Channel

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Cyphort, a pioneer of Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) solutions, announced today it has been named to The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.

“We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel.”

Cyphort’s Advanced Threat Defense Platform not only detects advanced threats but also empowers organizations to evaluate its impact on their business for a targeted response. The April update to version 3.3 includes malware lateral movement detection, the ability to combine advanced targeted attacks and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) detection. This provides customers with a complete picture of the attack as it happens and potential spread within an organization in real time.

Earlier this year, Cyphort announced it has hired Denise Hayman as vice president of worldwide sales to lead the company’s sales and channel teams as Cyphort continues to expand into new markets, grow its customer base and channel.

“Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year’s Emerging Vendors List don’t disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel.”

“We are extremely proud to be named a CRN 2015 Emerging Vendor. There is always a lot of competition to be included in this list and being selected is truly a testament to the team’s hard work,” said Manoj Leelanivas, president and CEO of Cyphort. “Cyphort is leading the industry with the first Advanced Threat Defense solution that is able to automatically prioritize threats based on business risk specific to a customer’s environment and prevent the spread of those risks laterally within the network. The platform is setting a new benchmark for what is expected in the industry.”

Companies included in CRN’s 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2015 issue and will be available online at
