Network Security Appliances: Sophos
CEO: Kris Hagerman
Sophos delivered its second consecutive win in this very crowded product category, growing its overall score by 3 points to 91.8.
The Abingdon, England-based vendor markedly improved its performance in the revenue and profit potential, marketability, partner portal, marketing support and cloud program criteria.
Fortinet again took the silver with an overall score of 81.8 after winning the product category, while Cisco took the bronze for the second consecutive year with an overall score of 80. The rest of the standings were very tight, with Dell coming in fourth with an overall score of 79.4, FireEye coming in fifth with 78.8 and McAfee coming in sixth with 77.9.
