SANTA CLARA, Calif., February 01, 2010 - McAfee, Inc. today announced that Everything Channel's CRN has named it one of the “20 Coolest Cloud Security Vendors.” The top Cloud Security Vendors include CRN’s top 20 picks of the coolest cloud security vendors helping to foster the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) phenomenon and drive it forward in 2010.
In September, McAfee completed the acquisition of MX Logic, a SaaS e-mail and Web security company. This acquisition helped bolster the McAfee portfolio which now includes email and Web protection, email continuity and archiving services, endpoint protection and vulnerability management, and added 40,000 new customers and 1,800 channel partners. Additionally, early this year McAfee launched a new version of its McAfee® Total Protection Service, providing integrated endpoint, email and Web protection from the cloud.
“This accolade validates the effort that we have put forth to create the most complete and comprehensive Security-as-a-Service suite,” said Marc Olesen, senior vice president and general manager, McAfee Software-as-a-Service. “With ten years of experience in providing SaaS based security solutions, McAfee has a huge leg up on the competition. We are pleased to see that our investment in SaaS paying off.”
The list was based on nominations from Solution Providers rating technology, channel influence, effectiveness and visibility along with business and sales impact. The final selections were made by a panel of Everything Channel Editors.
Winners were announced online at www.Channelweb.com and were featured in the January 25 issue of CRN.
