Minerva Labs Recognized on
CRN 2018 Emerging Vendors List

PETAH TIKVA, Israel, July 23 - Minerva Labs, a leading provider of anti-evasion technology for enterprise endpoints, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Minerva Labs 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. The list is divided into seven categories: Cloud, Data Center, Security, Big Data, Unified Communications, Internet of Things (IoT) and Storage. In addition to celebrating these notable companies, the Emerging Vendors list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.

Minerva’s Anti-Evasion Platform fills a unique gap on the endpoint, that of malware designed to evade antivirus, sandboxes and anti-malware tools. Minerva is the first vendor to address evasive threats in a way different from every other endpoint vendor. Instead of attempting to detect malware, Minerva approaches the problem by deceiving malicious software regarding its environment, causing it to self-convict by terminating or crashing. Minerva bolsters the protection that baseline anti-malware tools offer to create effective and evasion-proof endpoint prevention.

“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.”

"Minerva Labs built a comprehensive platform that improves security without overlapping with other tools, while overcoming operational challenges common to most enterprise endpoint security products. said Eddy Bobritsky, CEO at Minerva Labs. "We're honored that CRN recognizes the value that Minerva brings to enterprises and confirms this critical layer that is needed to fight today’s stealthiest attacks."
