SAN DIEGO, CALIF., February 22, 2021 – ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ESET to its annual Security 100 list. This list recognizes leading IT channel security vendors. A panel of respected CRN editors compiled this list, recognizing channel-focused security vendors across five technology categories: Identity Management and Data Protection; Endpoint Security; Network Security; Web, Email and Application Security; and SIEM, Risk and Threat Intelligence.

As security continues to be a top concern for customers of all sizes, this year’s Security 100 honorees bring a combination of channel focus, cutting-edge technology and outstanding partner benefits to solution providers. It’s why this list also serves as a guide for solution providers, helping them to identify the top security vendors to team with as they provide innovative solutions to their customers.

“CRN’s Security 100 list identifies leading companies who provide the IT channel with innovation in a number of security areas that stand up to a wide range of threats and risks”, said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Security is arguably the single most important factor in business today, and these companies are creating the building blocks for the most advanced cybertechnology security solutions."

Since 1992, ESET has led the internet security industry in creating award-winning threat detection software. With the cost of the average price of a data breach continuing to rise year over year, it’s imperative to have a security solution that has capabilities to detect and mitigate against the most advanced threats. For these reasons, ESET’s innovative endpoint solutions were chosen for their strength in protecting an organization’s assets at the network level with a multilayered defense against malware and ransomware, targeted attacks, data breaches and other internet threats. Its solutions offer cross-platform support, including mobile device management, and can detect common threats as well as those never seen before, automatically protecting against new threats without the need to wait for the next detection update.

“We are honored to be named to CRN’s Security 100 list. ESET’s dedication to delivering industry-leading, award-winning products and services have been validated through independent, third-party testing and CRN’s recognition further cements that validation for the North American region and our channel partners,” said Gerald Choung, VP of sales, ESET. “Providing security to the channel is a hallmark of ESET’s business model and we look forward to expanding our presence even further to help companies protect all of their customers through our endpoint solutions.”

The 2021 Security 100 list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN and online at
