Micro Focus Named To CRN’s 2021 Security 100 List


Santa Clara, CA - February 23, 2021 – Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Micro Focus 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.

In the face of unprecedented global challenges and the rise of cybercrime, Micro Focus is a trusted brand to  help CISOs and board members build a roadmap to enterprise and cyber resilience as they navigate the shifting demands of the digital economy and attempt to drive business growth during times of uncertainty.

“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."

"Being recognized by CRN as a Top 100 Security leader is an incredible achievement, and we are grateful to our customers and partners for helping us earn this significant honor," said John Delk, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Security, at Micro Focus. “Micro Focus is a proven leader providing customers and partners with a deep portfolio of solutions and strategic knowledge to help them successfully transform into a resilient enterprise designed with the agility and responsiveness to not only weather adverse conditions, but also drive sustained business performance.”

Underpinning the core pillars of cyber resilience is the ability of the organization to strategize, communicate, plan, implement and integrate technologies designed to allow an organization to “pivot at scale”, secure the business value chain and enable resilient operational excellence and digital transformation. Some of Micro Focus' leading security products include: Secure Content Management/Voltage (Data Privacy and Protection), Fortify (Application Security), NetIQ (Identity and Access Management), ArcSight (Security Operations), and Interset (Analytics and Machine Learning).

The 2021 Security 100 list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
