Elastica CEO, Rehan Jalil, Named as a Top 25 Disruptor

Elastica Recognized by CRN as 2015 Emerging Vendor in Cloud Security for Rapid Growth in Cloud Access Security Brokers Market

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 3, 2015) - Elastica (, the leader in Data Science Powered™ Cloud Application Security, today announced it has been named to The Channel Company's exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List; CEO Rehan Jalil has also been recognized as a Top 25 Disruptor within the prestigious 2015 CRN® Top 100 Executives list.

The annual Emerging Vendors list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to offer high-margin, cutting-edge solutions to their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands. 

CRN's annual Top 100 Executives list recognizes the efforts of agile decision-makers who play an integral role in evolving the way the channel does business. These 100 leaders, hand-picked by the CRN editorial staff, represent the preeminent innovators, influencers, disruptors and channel sales leaders in the IT channel today.

The Elastica CloudSOC™ platform harnesses advanced data science and machine learning to deliver granular visibility into real-time traffic, advanced anomaly detection to identify threats and real-time content classification. Elastica continuously protects organizations' sensitive data as they adopt cloud applications and services by revealing Shadow IT and Shadow Data, and by providing data governance, compliance risk mitigation, incident response and post-incident analysis. The SaaS-based delivery model allows organizations to easily deploy the solution with no software or hardware required.

In 2015, Elastica announced reseller agreements with Cisco, Accuvant, Telstra and Exclusive UK -- some of the most authoritative sources for enterprise information security. The partnerships allow Cisco and Accuvant to offer the Elastica CloudSOC solution to their extensive enterprise customer bases, expanding their respective security offerings into the Cloud Access Security Broker space -- which is the number 1 security technology in 2014/2015 according to Gartner.

"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." 

"Modern enterprises that have adopted cloud applications to better enable collaboration and increase productivity also became more susceptible to data and compliance breaches," said Rehan Jalil, CEO of Elastica. "This recognition by CRN is validation of Elastica's commitment to product innovation, our customers and our channel partners."

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
