-- Only Holistic Pure-Play Security Company Included in Top 50 --

Denver and Overland Park, Kans. – Accuvant and FishNet Security, which recently joined together to create the nation’s premier cyber security solutions provider, today announced the combined company has ranked at number 26 on The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Solution Provider 500 (SP500), making it the only holistic pure-play security company listed in the top 50. The two companies achieved combined gross revenue of approximately $1.5 billion in 2014.

“We’re at the beginning of a perfect storm. The speed, frequency, sophistication and scope of cyber attacks are increasing, and few organizations have the know-how, awareness, resources, or time to catch up or keep up,” said Dan Wilson, executive vice president of partner solutions for Accuvant and FishNet Security, becoming Optiv this summer. “Accuvant and FishNet Security each have a long history focusing on cyber security, building on innovation and putting clients first. Together, we have depth, breadth, scale and premier partnerships with leading product manufactures that enables us to even better serve organizations and help them plan, build and run successful cyber security programs. Our position on this list reflects that increased strength.”

Accuvant and FishNet Security provide the services and solutions that organizations need to define their security strategies, identify and remediate threats and risks, select and deploy the right technology, and achieve operational readiness to protect their organizations from malicious attack.

“The companies represented here are truly dedicated to the needs of customers today. With an evolving IT landscape, this prestigious list serves as a valuable industry resource to help vendors navigate the solution provider community and identify the best partners for their business,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "We congratulate the featured solution providers for their forward-thinking approach to solutions sales and look ahead to their continued success.”

The CRN SP500, an annual list, spanning eight categories, from hardware and software sales to managed IT services, recognizes the top revenue-generating technology integrators, MSPs and IT consultants in North America. Solution providers are ranked based on revenue, determined by product and services sales during 2014.
