Aqua Security Recognized on CRN's 2018 Emerging Vendors List

Leading solution for securing containers and cloud-native applications focuses on solution providers

PR Newswire

BOSTON, July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Aqua Security, the market-leading platform provider for securing container-based and cloud-native applications, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Aqua to its 2018 Emerging Vendors List in the Security category. This list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. The list is divided into seven categories: Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Unified Communications, Internet of Things (IoT) and Storage. In addition to celebrating these notable companies, the Emerging Vendors list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.

Aqua's container security platform increases the security of cloud-native applications by applying security controls across their entire lifecycle, from development to production. Dozens of Global 1000 customers use Aqua to secure their container-based and cloud-native applications that run either on-premises or in the cloud across both Linux and Windows runtime environments.

"The technology suppliers on CRN's 2018 Emerging Vendors list are creating a bright future for the IT channel, aggressively developing products to meet complex IT market demands, while positively impacting the bottom line of solution providers," said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. "The array of leading-edge products delivered by these organizations will have a lasting impact on the channel for years to come."

Enterprises are deploying containerized applications at an accelerated pace. While containers can create more secure application development environments, they also introduce new security challenges. A recent survey of 1,200 IT decision-makers by research firm CyberEdge found that containers are now the biggest security challenge organizations face.1

Aqua Security enables solution providers to help their customers mitigate those risks and realize the tremendous business benefits that containers offer.

"Aqua Security is a pioneer in the container security software market, and unlike the majority of vendors jumping into this category with first-generation products, we offer a mature, proven enterprise solution," said Dror Davidoff, CEO, Aqua Security. "We are committed to providing resellers, systems integrators and consultants with the technology, support and expertise they need to grow their businesses in the rapidly-growing container security market."
