November 30th, 2022

Recognition comes on the heels of significant channel growth and new best-in-class partnerships

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA—MARCH 16, 2022—CyCognito today announced CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has awarded the company a 5-Star rating in its 2022 Partner Program Guide.

CRN’s annual Partner Program Guide provides a definitive list of the most notable partner programs from industry-leading technology vendors that provide innovative products and flexible services through the IT channel. The 5-star rating is achieved only by select vendors that deliver the best of the best, going above and beyond in their partner programs to help push growth and positive change.

“Cyber security is no longer just about security; it’s about risk management for the business as a whole,” says Lori Cornmesser, Vice President of Worldwide Channel Sales, CyCognito. “This is precisely why earlier this year we doubled down on our channel program—to ensure that our customers and the cyber community can access our best-in-class solutions for securing their environments. CRN’s recognition is a reflection of our commitment and fast growth—and this is just the beginning.”

The Partner Program Guide provides the channel community with a deep dive into the partner programs offered by IT vendors, solutions providers, and distributors. Companies are scored based on their investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. A 5-star rating helps narrow the field to find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths.

The CyCognito Partner Program enables partners to secure their most critical business assets via a suite of integrated, holistic solutions. Leveraging the latest advancements in Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Understanding (NLU), CyCognito is the only solution that can automatically discover and attribute assets to a given organization across the entire global internet, and then quickly test those assets for security gaps and prioritize risks so that security teams can investigate, validate and remediate critical risks immediately. Major organizations like Colgate-Palmolive, Tesco, Scientific Games Corporation, and the State of California rely on CyCognito’s external Attack Surface Management platform to secure their cloud perimeter.

“CRN’s Partner Program Guide delves into the strengths of each organization’s partner program in order to honor those that consistently support and promote good change within the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “As innovation fuels, the speed and complexity of technology today, solution providers want partners that can keep up with and assist their growing business.”

The 2022 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April 2022 issue of CRN and online at
