Cisco Named One Of Top Three Most Trusted Security Vendors

Cisco has been ranked as one of the top three most trusted security product vendors and one of the top three most trusted security service providers in two surveys done by the Yankee Group. Symantec was also ranked as one of the top three most trusted vendors in both categories.

The Yankee Group 2004 Managed Security Services Survey found that of 606 enterprises, Symantec, Cisco and VeriSign rank as the three most trusted security service vendors.

The Yankee Group noted that Cisco's standing as one of the top three most-trusted security service vendors was surprising, given that it doesn't offer broad security services, offers only limited professional services, and no managed security services.

"This survey result is really a testament to the power of Cisco's remarkable brand recognition," said Phebe Waterfield, Yankee Group Security Solutions & Services analyst, in a statement.

In another survey, the Yankee Group 2004 Enterprise Security Services survey, Cisco, Cisco, Symantec, and Network Associates ranked as the three most trusted vendors of security products.
