Concentric named CRN Emerging Vendor

I’m proud to announce Concentric was named one of CRN’s Emerging Vendors for 2020! This annual list honors new, rising technology suppliers that exhibit great promise in shaping the future success of the channel with their dedication to innovation.

We were chosen for our innovative application of AI to enable customers to automate unstructured data protection. The Concentric Semantic Intelligence™ solution uses deep learning to semantically understand and categorize data in enterprise data stores, uncover business criticality and quantify risk to sensitive data by leveraging the wisdom of an enterprise’s baseline security practices. The solution can instantly spot risk to sensitive data such as inappropriate sharing (with internal users and third parties), risky storage locations or incorrect classification without regex, rules or upfront policy configuration. Semantic Intelligence shares categorization and risk information with other data security solutions to make them more effective while reducing staff overhead.  The Concentric solution is sold today through the channel, and deployed across leading high tech, financial services and healthcare firms to protect business critical data.


“CRN’s 2020 Emerging Vendors list recognizes vendors that are revolutionizing the IT channel with innovative solutions that meet the complex demands of our industry,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “It honors inspirational new vendors that are driving channel growth with state-of-the-art technologies that will continue to shape the channel into the future.”


We’re excited to be honored by CRN as an emerging vendor in the security category and we consider this a testimony to our innovative, market leading technologies in helping enterprises protect their business critical data through our channel partners.


The 2020 Emerging Vendors list will be featured in the August 2020 issue of CRN Magazine and online at
