Menlo Security Recognized by CRN as Emerging Vendor and a Top 10 Coolest Security Startup of 2015

Select Lists Feature the Coolest Tech Startups Heating Up the IT Channel

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 22, 2015) - Menlo Security, the only cybersecurity company that eliminates malware from Web and email without the need for endpoint software, announced today it has been named to The Channel Company's exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List and a Top 10 Coolest Security Vendor for 2015. 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 create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The Top 10 Coolest Security Startups for 2015 list recognizes those vendors who are standing out among the many new companies entering the security market.

Menlo Security launched from stealth in June, revealing the Menlo Security Isolation Platform, the only isolation security solution that requires no endpoint software and can be deployed at scale to completely eliminate the threat of malware from Web traffic, Web-borne documents and email.

"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."

Today, even the most trusted websites could be compromised, delivering zero-day malware to unsuspecting users. Rather than try to distinguish good content from bad, the Menlo Security Isolation Platform isolates and executes all Web content in the cloud. Without the need for software on the endpoint, the Menlo Security solution uses patent-pending Adaptive Clientless Rendering™ (ACR) technology to deliver a malware-free rendering of the user's isolated session in the Platform to their native browser, providing a transparent user experience that is 100 percent safe every time.

"We are honored to be named a Top 10 Coolest Security Vendor and Emerging Vendor for 2015 by CRN," said Richard Kagan, vice president of marketing at Menlo Security. "Conventional security technologies are failing to prevent cyber attacks, and the consequences are significant. With our isolation-based approach, we don't have to detect attacks in order to prevent them -- and this is a game changer, providing tremendous value for enterprises and a great opportunity for our partners. This recognition provides validation for our commitment to deliver innovative and reliable products to finally defeat malware."

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 www.crn.com.
