IronKey Named a "Coolest Vendor" by CRN

September 29, 2011

Finalist for "Security Company of the Year"

SUNNYVALE, CA, Sep 28, 2011 -- IronKey, the leader in securing data and online access, was named by CRN to its 25 Coolest Emerging Vendors list. The annual list features the most innovative vendors that not only deliver easy-to-use technology, but can also generate the high margins that solution providers require.

IronKey is also a finalist for CRN UK's "Security Vendor of the Year" award, which goes to the company judged to have made the best overall contribution to business development in the channel.

"IronKey continues to gain momentum globally by working closely with our partners," said IronKey vice president of global channel sales May Mitchell, a 2011 CRN Channel Chief honoree herself. "Our channel partners recognize IronKey solutions as an essential and growing component of their overall security practice. We take great pride in CRN's recognition of our leadership in channel programs."

Over the last year IronKey has successfully expanded its global Elite Partner Program to more than 600 partners worldwide, launched the new Trusted Access for Banking Elite Channel Partner Program and kept IronKey growing at a high double-digit growth rate. As part of this program, IronKey is teaming with banking service providers, such as First Data, to help their bank clients stop online banking fraud and achieve FFIEC (Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council) compliance.

Teaming with a channel partner to address customer data protection and compliance requirements helped IronKey win its largest ever order earlier this year. And earlier this year, IronKey's Elite partner program was recognized by Everything Channel as the first to win a five-star rating in its category.
