Noname Security joins top-tier firms on coveted CRN 2024 Security 100 list
Wed, 28th Feb 2024

Noname Security, a provider of a high-grade API security platform, has achieved a place on the prestigious CRN 2024 Security 100 list. The agenda of this list is to recognise leading IT security vendors who are dedicated to co-working with channel partners to protect businesses against cybersecurity threats. Noname Security's selection places it amongst top-tier companies that are offering ground-breaking solutions in various security domains capable of resisting a broad spectrum of risks and threats.

The CRN Security 100 list is an annual compilation, in its ninth year, that honours security vendors focusing on channel collaborations across five technology categories. These include Endpoint and Managed Security, Identity, Access and Data Security, Network Security, Security Operations, Risk and Threat Intelligence, and Web, Email, and Application Security. With an increasing emphasis on security for businesses of all sizes, this list serves as a critical resource for solution providers, spotlighting superior security vendors who promote cooperation with channel partners to provide inventive solutions for clients.

Established in 2019, Noname Security launched its API Security Platform using a 'channel-first' strategy, seeking to harness the influence of the partner community on CISOs. With API security becoming more critical for businesses, Noname Security has remained committed to tight collaboration with partners. This endeavour aims at imparting education to partners, enabling them to demonstrate strategic significance to their customers in the ever-shifting landscape of cybersecurity.

Oz Golan, the Co-Founder and CEO of Noname Security, expressed pride in this recognition and reaffirmed their commitment to both channel partners and clients. He stated, "Being named on CRN's Security 100 list is a tremendous accolade. As the API security threat landscape continually evolves, our commitment to arm our channel partners and their clients with cutting-edge technologies for dynamic API defence is unwavering. Together, we are setting new standards in proactive API protection to ensure they are staying ahead of threats."

A recent survey by Noname Security revealed a startling disconnect. A significant 94% of users expressed confidence in their existing application testing tools, yet 78% have suffered an API security incident in the previous 12 months. This scenario brings the necessity for API security tools to the fore, as unprotected APIs lead organisations to experience security incidents.

Jennifer Follett, Vice President of U.S. Content and Executive Editor at The Channel Company, which is behind CRN, commented on the significance of the CRN Security 100 list. She said, "These companies are laying the foundation for cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions," emphasising the ever-increasing importance of security to every form of business.

Noname Security's innovative approach to API security and its dedication to bolstering the resources of its channel partners, both in knowledge and technology, has been recognised by its inclusion in the esteemed list.
