SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 27, 2015) - Palerra, the cloud security automation company, 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.

This industry award comes on the heels of Palerra's recent recognition from AlwaysOn as a Top 2015 Global 250 Private Company.

A cloud-based security provider, Palerra was recognized by CRN for providing enterprises complete end-to-end protection of their cloud applications and infrastructure. LORIC™, Palerra's innovative SaaS offering, helps enterprises obtain visibility into user activities, detect internal & external threats, maintain compliance and automate incident response.

"Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The 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."

"Traditional security solutions focus on protecting on-premise data and infrastructure, and, with the rapid adoption of cloud services, our customers are seeing a gap in many existing security architectures," said Rohit Gupta, co-founder and CEO of Palerra. "Palerra enables organizations to detect breaches when they occur, which is critical given the high volume of cloud users and rapid increase in attacks. Moreover, it allows organizations to remediate threats in an instant. As failure to respond to a detected threat creates a window of opportunity for data loss, we understand the need for solutions that allow for immediate action. We are thrilled that Palerra's powerful cloud security automation solution has been recognized through its inclusion on CRN's prestigious Emerging Vendor list."

Companies included in CRN's 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN's August 2015 issue and will be available online at
