Micro Focus Recognized on CRN's 2019 Security 100 List

25 February 2019

SUNNYVALE, CAMicro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Micro Focus to its annual Security 100 list. This list recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM, Risk and Threat Intelligence; and Web, Email and Application Security. The companies on CRN's Security 100 list have demonstrated innovation and creativity in product development as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.

In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list serves as a respected guide for solution providers trying to navigate the IT security market. The list helps prospective channel partners to identify the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.

With more than 40 years of experience in the Security, Risk, and Governance markets, Micro Focus is a trusted and proven partner in helping C-level executives secure what matters most – identities, applications and data. The company's deep portfolio – which spans breach defense, application security, privacy, compliance and governance solutions – is backed by a robust analytics ecosystem that helps organizations streamline their security operations and surface the most at-risk assets first. The end result is often greater total protection at a lower aggregate cost than competing solutions.

"CRN's 2019 Security 100 list identifies top technology companies that are meeting high-levels of demand with the most innovative security solutions on the market, enabling businesses to grow uninterrupted" said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. "The core elements of today's businesses all depend upon secure, reliable cybersecurity solutions."

"We're honored to be recognized by CRN as a Top 100 Security leader, and we want to thank our customers and partners for helping us achieve this significant accolade," said John Delk, Chief Marketing Officer and Security Product Group Leader at Micro Focus. "As a proven leader in helping organizations address digital transformation, and a deep portfolio that allows our customers to address some of their most-critical challenges like securing DevOps or defending against cyber attacks in a holistic manner, Micro Focus is in a strong position to remain as a leader in this space for years to come."

Some of Micro Focus' leading security products include: Secure Content Management/Voltage (Data Governance and Protection), Fortify (Application Security), NetIQ (Identity and Access Management), Endpoint Security (ZENworks), ArcSight/Sentinel (Security Operations), Digital Safe/Retain (Archiving), and Vertica/IDOL/UBA (Analytics and Machine Learning).

The Security 100 list will be featured in the February 2019 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/security100.
