McAfee Gets High Marks on CRN's 2018 Annual Report Card


Solution Providers Recognize McAfee as a Best-in-Class Channel
Provider of Data Security

McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, announced today that
it has emerged the winner in the Data Security category of CRN®‘s
2018 Annual Report Card (ARC) awards program. The Annual Report Card
summarizes results from a comprehensive survey that details solution
provider satisfaction across product innovation, support and partnership
for the hardware, services and software vendors they team up with. The
vendors with the highest ratings are named to the prestigious Annual
Report Card list of winners and celebrated as best-in-class by their
partners. The results also provide the IT vendor community with valuable
feedback—directly from their solution providers—that can be used to
refine product offerings, enhance support offerings and improve
communication with partners.

McAfee Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a comprehensive solution that
safeguards intellectual property and ensures compliance to internal
policies by protecting sensitive data wherever it lives—on premises, in
the cloud, or at the endpoints. With McAfee DLP, users are empowered
with data protection manual classification along with real-time popups,
and a self-remediation tool to help increase employee data protection

"The cybersecurity landscape is constantly evolving with new threats
targeting the data and systems of businesses everywhere," said Ken
McCray, vice president of Americas channel sales and operations, McAfee.
"We're proud to provide a Data Loss Prevention solution that has earned
the respect and trust of the partner community. Together with channel
resellers and distributors around the world, we are working to keep our
customers and their data safe."

This year's group of honorees was selected from the results of an
in-depth, invitation-only survey by The Channel Company's research team.
More than 3,000 solution providers were asked to evaluate their
satisfaction with more than 65 vendor partners in 24 major product
categories. The winners will be honored throughout The Channel Company's
XChange 2018 conference (,
taking place August 19-21st in San Antonio, TX.

"An ARC award is one of the industry's most prestigious honors. It
symbolizes a vendor's dedication to delivering high quality and
innovative product and program offerings to their channel partners,"
said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. "CRN's Annual Report Card
provides solution providers with the rare opportunity to offer their
invaluable insight on vendors' products and services, as well as their
partner programs. As a result, the technology suppliers are equipped
with actionable feedback to bolster their efforts to remain the
