July 23, 2018

SANTA CLARA, CA–July 23, 2018 — Baffle, an advanced data protection company, announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Baffle 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.

Baffle was established to combat the increasing cyber threats to enterprise assets in public and private clouds. The company’s Advanced Data Protection Service is the first to allow wildcard search of AES encrypted data without requiring any application rewrites. Rather than investing resources to rewrite applications to secure their code, companies can use Baffle to simply and easily implement a data security model in which their data is never decrypted, including when it is being processed.

“This award comes on the heels of our recognition from Red Herring as one of most exciting and innovative private technology companies in the country – and for good reason,” said Ameesh Divatia, co-founder and CEO of Baffle. “We eliminate the impact of the inevitable security mistake or breach and safely accelerate cloud migration, big data analytics and data sharing initiatives. Until now, encryption has been too complicated to deploy and manage, wasn’t designed for the scale and diversity of big data and the cloud—and is notorious for breaking applications. Our system can protect data that’s stored on premises or in the cloud, and Baffle is the only company that can enable encryption of data at rest, in use, in memory and in the search index without decrypting the data.”

“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.”
