StackRox Earns CRN’s Kudos as 2019 Emerging Vendor

Right on the heels of winning two CODiE awards, StackRox was just named a Computer Reseller News 2019 Emerging Vendor. StackRox and our Kubernetes-native container security platform were chosen for our ability to help organizations harden and secure Kubernetes environments at scale.

DevOps practices and the cloud-native stack provide the channel with rich opportunities to help companies enable business transformation. The underlying technologies of containers and Kubernetes, however, wreak havoc with traditional security tooling and processes. CRN recognizes the pioneering approach StackRox has taken to protecting today’s application development environment and the value channel providers can extend to their customers in this domain.

The CEO of CRN’s parent company, The Channel Company, summed up the award this way: “It honors groundbreaking vendors that provide sophisticated technology to drive channel growth — and remain committed to ongoing innovation to shape the channel for years to come.”

StackRox has benefitted enormously from working entirely through the channel to sell to our customers. Our channel partners are leading business transformation, cloud migration, and technical agility projects across a wide array of companies. Having them bring the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform into their cherished customer base is an honor. We look forward to growing the work we do with our hand-picked list of channel providers, and we thank CRN for recognizing the value of our platform.
