**BOSTON — NOVEMBER 14, 2018** — Recorded Future, the leading threat intelligence provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Recorded Future with a 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Award. These annual awards honor standout hardware, software, and services that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2018 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features, and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges. Recorded Future took top honors in the Threat Intelligence/Protection category.

Working across six continents and 22 industries, including finance, healthcare, tech, and retail, Recorded Future is the only unified threat intelligence solution on the market, identifying threats to organizations up to 10 times faster than competitors’ solutions. Unlike other products, Recorded Future centralizes and customizes proprietary and internal threat data with external threat intelligence. It provides unprecedented analysis of the broadest and most comprehensive set of open and closed feeds, internal risk lists, and internally generated analyst notes — all in one view. Recorded Future allows clients to view information from high-value sources alongside dark web and technical intelligence, together with client-specific intelligence. According to independent research, it identifies 22 percent more threats before impact and helps resolve security incidents 63 percent faster.

Over the past year, Recorded Future has enhanced its offerings. It expanded its machine learning-powered threat intelligence to give analysts and security operations centers access to analyst-originated intelligence assessments on threat actors, vulnerabilities, malware, and other indicators of compromise, as well as in-depth, finished intelligence customized to their needs. The company launched Recorded Future Connect, a global technology partner community that offers a range of external threat intelligence, enabling security professionals to proactively map applicable threats and add dynamic, real-time intelligence to traditionally static security functions. Recorded Future also began offering takedown services of fake accounts, apps, and websites as part of its brand monitoring offering.

“This award is a reflection of our commitment to delivering the most advanced threat intelligence platform to our partners and customers,” said Dr. Christopher Ahlberg, CEO and co-founder of Recorded Future. “Organizations faced with a litany of threats are turning to Recorded Future to help them get the insights they need to protect themselves and manage their risk.”

“Each year, the CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize technology vendor offerings that are reshaping the IT channel landscape by increasing worker productivity, reducing cost, and minimizing complexity for solution providers, IT departments, and end users,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s awards bring breakthrough ideas to the table for solution providers and their customers, in areas ranging from cloud to security to business intelligence to IoT. We congratulate all the winners and look forward to their future endeavors.”
