MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, July 24, 2018

Fortanix® Inc., the leader in Runtime Encryption®, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Fortanix to its 2018 Emerging Vendors List in the Security Category. This list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations.

CRN Emerging Vendors

Fortanix’s Self-Defending Key Management Service™ leverages Runtime Encryption® and Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) to deliver security for encryption keys and cryptographic services with software-defined simplicity. The solution offers channel-friendly and flexible consumption models, including a hardened appliance and a SaaS service. It is uniquely architected to enable easy integration for new modern cloud applications, as well as existing applications with support for both RESTful APIs and traditional cryptographic interfaces, including PKCS#11, KMIP, JCE and CNG.

“The technology suppliers on CRN’s 2018 Emerging Vendors list are creating a bright future for the IT channel, aggressively developing products to meet complex IT market demands, while positively impacting the bottom line of solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “The array of leading-edge products delivered by these organizations will have a lasting impact on the channel for years to come.”

Fortanix earlier this year launched a new channel-friendly appliance for SDKMS, the FX2200 appliance node. Together with the Fortanix-powered hardware security module (HSM)-as-a-service offering, the solutions enable channel partners to meet their customers’ unique needs for data protection in hybrid environments and multiple clouds with next-generation HSM designed for the cloud era. Traditional HSM solutions are difficult to integrate and operate reliably, even for the most sophisticated organizations. Fortanix SDKMS is simple to set up and maintain, freeing partners to focus on becoming trusted security advisors by creating solutions for customers to drive business value and mitigate security risk.

“The growing Fortanix Channel Program offers partners strong incentives with attractive margins, deal registration, and protection including expansionary and renewal incumbency,” said Ambuj Kumar, co-founder and CEO of Fortanix. “Fortanix is the world’s first solution delivering Runtime Encryption® technology to enable general-purpose computation on encrypted data without exposing sensitive information. We have witnessed impressive growth in our channel program and channel-enabled sales since our announcement of the FX2200 appliance node.”
