M86 Security Recognized by Everything Channel's CRN Magazine as One of the Top 100 Cloud Computing Vendors

M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid Named to Top 20 Cloud Security Vendor List Two Years Running

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, today announced it was named one of the Top 100 Cloud Computing Vendors by Everything Channel's CRN. M86 Security was singled out as one of twenty top cloud vendors in the area of security, with specific mention of the M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid's ability to "quash malware and other Web-based threats in real time." This is the second year in a row that M86 Security has been recognized by CRN in this prestigious list comprising the top cloud computing vendors. 

CRN compiled the list based on nominations from solution providers and industry executives rating the channel leadership and effectiveness of a company along with its business and sales impact. The final selections were made by a panel of Everything Channel editors taking into account channel investment and resources, top executive channel advocacy and performance in Everything Channel research projects.

"This year's Top 100 Cloud Computing Vendors list is based on a cloud vendor's approach to creating an innovative product, or an innovative approach to supporting solution providers in the IT channel," said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director CRN. "Specifically, these Cloud vendors help resellers transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging cloud computing has to offer."

"The combination of the M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid solution with the M86 Secure Web Gateway appliance provides us with the fantastic opportunity to address our customers' security concerns of how to best protect and secure mobile workers who utilize laptops outside the office as well as users based in remote offices," said Michael Chang, vice president integration services, Wall Street Network. "It also allows our customers to manage both the on-site appliance and the cloud service from one central point, which helps them push and manage consistent policies to all users wherever they are."

The M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid builds on the industry-leading capabilities of the M86 Secure Web Gateway to cost-effectively deliver the same real-time malware protection to mobile workers and branch offices. With the M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid solution of the M86 Secure Web Gateway, M86 Security was the first security vendor to release a hybrid solution of an on-premises appliance coupled with a scalable, cost-effective cloud-based security tool enabling unified policy management, reporting, and logging for all users from the central headquarters regardless of their location. M86 Security is the only vendor to offer its unique and patented Real-time Code Analysis technology, which allows organizations to protect their users against advanced malware while maintaining and controlling safe, productive use of Web 2.0 sites, as an on-premise and hybrid cloud deployment solution.

"We are honored to be recognized for the second year in a row by CRN as one of the top cloud computing vendors in the security category," said Paul Myer, senior vice president, corporate development, M86 Security. "As the workplace becomes increasingly mobile, ensuring that users can safely access the Web becomes paramount. The M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid provides our channel partners with a product that offers their customers a flexible, easy-to-use solution to protect against malware threats for users connecting to the corporate network remotely or from branch offices."
