Posted 03/07/2016

CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 7, 2016-- Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a leading provider of network testing, visibility, and security solutions announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Ixia to its inaugural 2016 Security 100 list. This project recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity and Access Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Threat Detection; and Web and Application Security.

The companies in CRN's Security 100 have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development, as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.

In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list also serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the IT security market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.

“This recognition by CRN for having launched a series of powerful, channel-ready security solutions during this past year truly validates our commitment to the industry and our partners,” says Lori Cornmesser, VP Global Channel Sales at Ixia. “BreakingPoint Virtual Edition, ThreatARMOR, and Vision ONE create new opportunities for partners to help customers amplify security by testing new defenses, shrinking their network attack surface, and eliminating dangerous blind spots.”

Ixia’s BreakingPoint® Virtual Edition is a cost-effective, elastic, and sharable virtualized test solution that enables enterprises to maximize security investments and optimize network performance. Ixia’s ThreatARMORTM is a new front line of defense for enterprise networks, enabling customers to reduce the ever-increasing size of their global network attack surface, while decreasing the volume of security alerts generated and freeing IT resources to focus on critical issues. The newest addition to the growing Ixia security portfolio, Vision ONE TM, is a turnkey device that delivers visibility intelligence without sacrificing performance, allowing organizations to maintain security across physical and virtual infrastructures from a single security platform.

“Security solutions are more essential than ever to the health and sustainability of every business, large or small,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “The frequency and complexity of IT security threats have vastly increased in recent years, requiring rapid innovation and an incisive, forward-thinking defense strategy. The importance of having expertly secured networks, software, hardware, applications, and databases cannot be overstated. Our Security 100 list honors those tech suppliers at the forefront of this field for their contributions to the advancement of the channel and to the IT market at large.”
