LOS ALTOS, Calif., July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Contrast Security, the pioneer in enabling "self-protecting" software with security safeguards built directly into critical applications, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Contrast Security 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. "

It is an honor to be recognized by CRN as an Emerging Vendor in the security category," said Mike McCormick, VP Channels at Contrast Security. "This is a true testament to our tremendous security technology which enables software applications to protect themselves against cyberattacks." 

The Contrast platform combines Contrast Asses, an Interactive Application Security Testing product, and Contrast Protect, a Runtime Application Self-Protection solution. Together, they provide a comprehensive self-protecting software solution that works in a data-center, cloud, and container environment, throughout the entire application lifecycle. Contrast is ideal for businesses of all industries and sizes. 

"Contrast Security has turned application security testing on its head," said Kevin Kilgore, President and CEO at WinMill Software. "The ability to analyze and protect applications from the inside out allows Contrast to offer complete coverage with virtually zero false positives. Recommending Contrast to our clients is an absolute no-brainer." 

"Contrast Security provides scalable low-latency multilevel protection that WAFs and static code analysis can't even begin to touch," said Andrew Hamilton, CTO at Cybriant. "At Cybriant we use their next generation RASP technology to defend customers' brownfield web applications that crash and burn with the traditional WAFs that are being sold today. And unlike other RASP platforms on the market, old code does not need to be rewritten to accommodate its new set of armor." 

"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."
