Code42 Named to CRN’s Security 100 List
Recognizing leading IT channel security leaders, the Security 100 list honorees bring a combination of channel focus and trailblazing, innovative technology to solution providers.

Recipients chosen for this year’s Security 100 list have been specifically selected by CRN editors for their outstanding channel-focused security offerings across five categories: Identity Management and Data Protection; Endpoint and Managed Security; Network Security; Web, Email and Application Security; and Security Operations, Risk and Threat Intelligence. This list serves as a comprehensive guide for solution providers, helping them to identify the top security vendors to team with as they build innovative solutions for their customers. Code42 was recognized as one of the 20 coolest Identity Access Management and Data Protection companies among this year’s CRN Security 100.

With the Code42® Incydr™ product, security teams can effectively mitigate data exposure and exfiltration risks without disrupting legitimate collaboration. Incydr is purpose-built to help security teams effectively manage the dynamic nature of Insider Risk – that includes prioritizing and responding appropriately to the risks that matter the most. It surfaces the top indicators of Insider Risk and gathers detailed security intelligence about on- and off-network file movements.

“With proposals at the federal level to require companies to report cyber breaches of all kinds, it’s important for organizations to have comprehensive and robust Insider Risk Management programs in place,” said Siraj of Code42. “We’re committed to providing our channel partners with everything they need to incorporate Insider Risk Management programs into their larger security offerings to help their customers navigate today’s complex threat landscape.”

Faraz Siraj Named a 2022 CRN Channel Chief
Additionally, Faraz Siraj, vice president of Channel Sales at Code42, was named to CRN’s 2022 Channel Chiefs list. CRN’s annual Channel Chiefs project identifies top IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate expertise, influence and innovation in channel leadership.

Through his background with RSA Security, Cisco’s Security Organization and ThreatQuotient, he developed the skills to lead, build and scale channel partner businesses in the security industry.

Our partners are looking for easy-to-use SaaS solutions they can quickly integrate with their existing security infrastructure, and that’s exactly what we’re providing them,” continued Siraj. “It’s an honor to be recognized by CRN. I look forward to continuing to expand our Accelerate program and educate partners on how to best run IRM programs that automate and streamline Insider Risk response processes.”
