IronNet, Inc. recognized by CRN on the 2020 Emerging Vendors List

MCLEAN, Va.July 20, 2020 - IronNet Inc., the leader in Collective Defense and network detection and response, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named IronNet to its 2020 Emerging Vendors list in the Security category. This annual list honors new, rising technology suppliers that exhibit great promise in shaping the future success of the channel with their dedication to innovation. The list recognizes channel-focused organizations across eight categories: Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), Storage and Networking/Unified Communications.

IronNet was recognized for its Collective Defense platform powered by IronDome®, which is the industry's first automated solution to allow organizations of all sizes to share collective intelligence anonymously and collaborate against targeted threats in real time with other participating organizations.

Combined with behavior-based analytics at the network level via its IronDefense® software, Collective Defense allows customers to apply a wider pool of cybersecurity expertise, threat visibility, and higher-order behavioral analysis to detect and respond to sophisticated threats that evade traditional cyber security tools.

"We appreciate the recognition from CRN not only of IronNet's technology, but of our work with the channel partner industry," said Garrett Jones, VP of Global Channels at IronNet. "We know that our partners add a critical amount of value to our clients every day."

The Emerging Vendors list is selected by CRN's esteemed editorial team. These vendors are inspiring the IT channel with groundbreaking technologies and best-in-class offerings that are elevating businesses – driving success with solutions built to battle the challenges of the IT channel.

Gregory J. Spicer, Chief Revenue Officer of Braintrace, an IronNet channel partner, said, "We believe in IronNet's Collective Defense mission and we see their offerings as shaping the future of cybersecurity. Between the quality of their behavioral analytics and the Collective Defense sharing model, IronNet's platform is a force multiplier for companies of all sizes in the battle against cyber attacks."

"CRN's 2020 Emerging Vendors list recognizes vendors that are revolutionizing the IT channel with innovative solutions that meet the complex demands of our industry," said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company.
