Trend Micro (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), the leader in cloud security, today announced that it was named one of the 100 Coolest Cloud Companies for 2021 by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company. This annual list recognises the leading cloud technology providers in five critical categories: infrastructure, monitoring and management, security, storage and software.

The list not only honours exceptional technology suppliers, but it has become a trusted resource for solutions providers looking for cloud technology providers to partner with – presenting a list of the companies best-positioned to support their cloud service needs.

This year’s 100 Coolest Cloud Companies were selected by the CRN editorial team based on two key deliverables: companies’ demonstrated commitment to working with channel partners; and their innovation in product and service development.

“Since day one, our sales model has been selling through the channel – that has not changed. However, as market dynamics and the needs of our partners change, so does our partner programme. With cloud becoming increasingly relevant, we’ve refreshed our channel programme to enable and reward our partners for their cloud business,” said Louise McEvoy, vice-president of US channel for Trend Micro. “I’m proud of the work the Trend Micro channel team has done to grow this business through the channel and proud of our partners for growing their cloud business alongside us. I’m humbled by this recognition, as it is a great validation of these efforts.”

With the launch of Trend Micro Cloud One, the company has launched a security services platform for organisations building in the cloud, delivering the broadest and deepest cloud security offering in one solution. It enables customers to secure their cloud infrastructure with clarity and simplicity.

“We are thrilled to be selected, once again, as one of CRN’s Coolest Cloud Companies for 2021. The award affirms our position at the top of the industry in cloud security, all the while remaining in close contact with our channel partners to ensure their overall success,” said Wendy Moore, vice-president of product marketing at Trend Micro. “Trend Micro’s Cloud One, our new security services platform for cloud builders, will help our partners simplify their end customers' hybrid and multi-cloud security. This, in return, adds both a cloud portfolio and services opportunities for our valued partners.”
