Trustifi Named A Finalist In CRN's 2021 Tech Innovator Award Competition

Trustifi’s powerful email security software is singled-out among hundreds of innovative providers as a leading channel offering

Trustifi, a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) email encryption company announces it has been named a finalist in CRN magazine’s 2021 Tech Innovators Award competition. CRN is a brand of The Channel Company, and one of the IT industry’s most widely-read publications. Trustifi’s cyber security solutions have been recognized in the Email Security category. In 2021, Trustifi’s suite of solutions sustained a roster of improvements and upgrades, including the implementation of new sensitivity detection tools, plus an enhancement of its innovative optical character recognition system. Trustifi also added a retroactive scanning feature, where up to 1,000 past emails can be scanned per mail inbox.

CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards shine an annual spotlight on innovative solutions across more than 40 categories including security, cloud, storage, and networking, honoring the most groundbreaking IT products and services the industry has to offer. A panel of CRN editors review hundreds of new and upgraded solutions for this competition, leveraging criteria such as technological ingenuity, capabilities, unique benefits for channel partners and end-users, and the ability to address customer or partner needs. This year, 373 applications were submitted to CRN’s lab for review. The awards honor achievements in security disciplines such as automation, data protection, security management, and endpoint protection.

In addition to its 2021 product enhancements, Trustifi’s email security solutions stood out to the CRN editors due to the vendor’s unique, relay-based approach to encryption. Rather than have emails pass through the recipient’s gateway, as with legacy “SEG”-based systems (security email gateways), Trustifi encrypts messages before they enter the gateway. Consequently, sent mail remains on Trustifi’s proprietary web-based cloud storage platform for as long as the sender designates, where it can be accessed and recalled or changed as-needed—even after messages are opened.

“We’re thrilled that our cyber security solution has been recognized as a finalist in CRN’s prestigious Tech Innovator Awards, which sets a gold standard for technology in the channel,” said Trustifi’s CEO and Co-Founder Rom Hendler. “Trustifi is devoted to its channel partners, helping them to realign their vision of what they can achieve in protecting their clients’ email data. We’re helping companies stay ahead of malicious actors as threats become more sophisticated. Trustifi is proud that our solutions made such a fine showing among the enviable competition in our category, according to the industry authorities at CRN.”
