Recently acquired by Symantec, Fireglass’ web isolation technology strengthens Symantec’s Integrated Cyber Defense Platform and ability to secure the cloud generation

NEW YORK, NY – Sept. 18, 2017 – Fireglass, the leading web isolation vendor, announced today that CRN® has named Fireglass to its 2017 Emerging Vendors list in the Security category. This list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers that are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations.

Recently acquired by Symantec Corporation, Fireglass provides web isolation technology that prevents malware and phishing attacks from occurring with web and email activity, while providing a seamless user experience. Fireglass’ agentless solution executes web sessions remotely and prevents any web content from reaching and infecting endpoints. Delivered as a cloud service or on-premises, Fireglass augments existing security architectures to provide secure web access to risky and uncategorized sites, while minimizing security overhead from complex web access policies, support tickets and alerts.          

In addition to celebrating standout companies, the CRN Emerging Vendors list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology. This year, for the first time, the list is divided into seven categories: Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Networking/VoIP, Internet of Things and Storage.

“We are honored to be named to the CRN Emerging Vendors List,” said Guy Guzner, Fireglass’ CEO and co-founder. “Fireglass’ Web Isolation technology is gaining traction in the marketplace, particularly among Fortune 500 organizations that are looking for an effective solution that helps stop malware, ransomware and phishing intrusions. Fireglass’ placement on the CRN Emerging Tech Vendors list, as well as  Symantec’s decision to invest in web isolation technology to strengthen its Integrated Cyber Defense Platform, reflect the growing demand for web isolation platforms in the cybersecurity industry Further, coupling our innovative isolation technology with Symantec’s market leading Symantec Web Gateway (SWG) and email solutions allows this technology to be broadly deployed, changing the game against cyber attacks at two major vectors.”

“This impressive group of technology supplier startups is already disrupting the status quo, aggressively creating and innovating to meet the ever-changing demands of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2017 Emerging Vendors represent the next generation of IT change agents, producing a wide range of leading-edge products that solution providers should keep an eye on in the coming year and beyond.”
