Lockpath named a 2012 emerging vendor by CRN, UBM Channel

Published on August 27, 2012

OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS — Lockpath, a provider of innovative governance, risk and compliance (GRC) applications, today announced it has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN as a 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require. The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2006 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy.

Among these Emerging Vendors are companies that have already established themselves in their market segment and others that are already making an impact despite a recent launch. Each organization on the list represents a new partnership and a go-to-market opportunity for solution providers looking to identify new vendor partners.

Open, flexible and effortless to integrate, the Keylight™ platform is the perfect fit for solution providers looking for an elegant and enterprise-ready GRC solution—cloud-based or on-premise. Whether the organization has 50 employees or 150,000, Keylight can be implemented quickly and painlessly, providing a cost-effective way for organizations to manage complicated and rapidly-evolving risk and regulatory compliance requirements.

Since its launch, Lockpath’s channel program has experienced impressive growth, because of its purpose-built, partner- oriented platform. Lockpath works with global partners across a multitude of industries to meet customers’ ever-changing GRC needs. With recent Series B funding, Lockpath plans to aggressively develop its channel program in 2012 by collaborating with global solution providers with a focus on a consulting approach to meeting customers’ IT, IT security and governance needs.

“Emerging doesn’t mean what it used to,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. “And this collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine. With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past. We congratulate each vendor on the list and congratulate them for placing an emphasis on innovation and ease of use, features that are the hallmark of any successful channel offering.”

Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information. To view a sample of the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit www.crn.com.

“Typically, GRC vendors haven’t succeeded in the channel because the traditional  platforms are difficult to integrate and frustrating to implement,” said Chris Caldwell, CEO, Lockpath. “Lockpath is rewriting GRC channel history with a platform that is agile, channel-friendly and ensures our partners are able quickly and more than effectively conquer their compliance demons.”
