SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AttackIQ, the leading independent vendor of Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) systems, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company a finalist in the 2020 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. AttackIQ was recognized for its Security Optimization Platform in the Risk Assessment and Management category.

The AttackIQ Security Optimization Platform gives customers the most consistent, trusted, and safest way to test and validate security controls at scale and in production. While competitors test in sandboxes, AttackIQ tests in production across the entire kill chain, the same as real-world adversaries do. Enterprises get a complete picture of their cybersecurity risks and vulnerabilities, can measure effectiveness over time, and optimize their investments. Security control vendors benefit from an objective evaluation of product performance in order to maintain a high threshold of threat protection.

“Many CISOs are still grappling with the financial impacts of the global pandemic, alongside a heightened and advanced threat landscape,” said Brett Galloway, CEO of AttackIQ. “Faced with these challenges, it is more important than ever to optimize their security programs. Our channel partners are helping customers move beyond fighting fires and cost reduction to a strategic security program that considers both risk and value. Plus, they can take advantage of our Preactive Security Ecosystem of solutions that integrate with our platform and the Academy program for free cybersecurity education.”

The annual CRN Tech Innovator Awards program honors innovative vendors in the IT channel across 49 technology categories, in key areas ranging from security to cloud to networking. To select the honorees, CRN editors assessed hundreds of vendor products along multiple criteria, including uniqueness, key capabilities, technological competency, and addressing customer needs.

“CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards celebrate technology vendors that empower end users and promote business growth for solution providers with pioneering, purpose-built solutions,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Congratulations to each of this year’s CRN Tech Innovator Award finalists! We are honored to recognize these best-in-class vendors that are powering IT transformation and innovation.”
