MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 22, 2015) - vArmour, the data center security company that transforms how organizations protect their virtualized and cloud assets, announced today it has been named to The Channel Company's exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.

Enterprises around the globe are witnessing a paradigm shift of the data center. Leading solution and service providers have played a critical role in supporting the enterprise in this transformation of compute, storage and networking, but up until now, security has been left behind. With vArmour's Distributed Security System bringing extensible, scalable, independent and actionable controls, vArmour and its partners are enabling modernization across the data center stack, solving complex security issues and capitalizing on the $77 billion worldwide information security market opportunity.

Through the vArmour Invited Partners (VIP) channel program, solution and service partners have a unique and strategic market opportunity that provides services enablement to ensure lifetime customer success and substantial financial incentives compared to legacy hardware-based security providers. vArmour recently announced a free version of the Distributed Security System, DSS-V, to provide data center visibility for all. Organizations can now easily download and launch vArmour DSS-V to visualize their complex application traffic in 15 minutes. With vArmour DSS-V, IT professionals can take the first step to build a secure, next-generation data center for free. To request a download of vArmour DSS-V, visit here.

"Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. vArmour, along with the other exciting technology vendors recognized in this year's Emerging Vendors List, don't disappoint -- the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "We congratulate 2015's Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel."

"It's an honor for vArmour to be recognized as one of CRN's 2015 Emerging Vendors. Our VIP partners have an incredible opportunity to help their enterprise customers securely transform their data centers to stay competitive," said Dean Hickman-Smith, senior vice president of field operations for vArmour. "Receiving this award celebrates the early successes of our VIP channel program and bolsters vArmour's long-term commitment to the channel."
