Annual List Features Trailblazing Solution Providers Transforming Business with Emerging Technologies

Tulsa, OK – Norlem, the Next Generation Cybersecurity experts, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Norlem to its 2016 Next-Gen 250 list. The annual list recognizes standout IT solution providers who have successfully transformed their businesses to meet the demands of emerging technologies such as cloud computing, unified communications, virtualization, mobility, business analytics and business intelligence. These solution providers, all in business for fewer than 20 years, have adapted to an evolving marketplace with a notable penchant for bringing key technologies to their clients before they become mainstream.

Norlem was founded in 2005 by owner and CEO Bryan Norman.  Norlem is an IT Services provider doing work in North and South America.  Recent engagements include companies located in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Austin, Kansas City, New York City, Los Angeles, and Phoenix.

“We’ve witnessed so much frustration in the marketplace from technology that’s purchased but never implemented.  Or even worse, not implemented correctly,” said owner and CEO Bryan Norman. “Norlem’s cybersecurity experts, in conjunction with select partners such as Palo Alto Networks, Protectwise, ixia, Ping Identity, and ProofPoint, changes the current reseller paradigm.  We do so by creating a way forward for our customers, so they can realize the promise on the investments they have made, while also realizing the enhanced security posture those investments represent.”

“The solution providers on our Next-Gen 250 list are ahead of the curve when it comes to working with emerging technologies and building successful practice areas around them,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These remarkably agile companies, both established enterprises and new ones, were among the first to architect innovative solutions to meet a brand new set of customer needs. We congratulate the honorees named to this exclusive list and look forward to seeing what other innovations they have in store.”

A sampling of the Next-Gen 250 list will be featured in the December issue of CRN and online at and through the CRN Tech News Tablet App for iPad and Windows 8.
