The article reports that Cisco Systems Inc. has been awarded first place in the network security products category in the CRN 2005 Channel Champions survey. Few would dispute Cisco Systems is a force to be reckoned with in networking, but that reputation is increasingly extending to security. While rival Symantec Corp. prevailed in channel criteria, Cisco's lead on the technical side put it over the top. In particular, to say Cisco dominated its competitors in product reliability would be an understatement: On this criterion, Cisco gained a 7.7-point hedge against its closest rival in the survey, Symantec, and a 6.1-point lead over WatchGuard Technologies Inc., the runner-up in product reliability.
