Munich, Germany – At this year’s Cisco Partner Summit in Montreal, Canada, CANCOM was awarded “Security Partner of the Year” for the Central Europe and Germany regions. Cisco recognized CANCOM’s successes in the development, implementation, and marketing of IT security solutions based on Cisco technologies.
CANCOM is one of the first partners to integrate all of Cisco’s security solutions into its own vertical business solutions. Among the sectors that enjoy the advantages of being in CANCOM’s comprehensive security portfolio are the automobile and manufacturing industries.
Werner Schwarz, CANCOM’s Solution Sales Director, says of the award, “Industry and manufacturing are finding themselves confronted with new technological trends. Companies must become more and more flexible and react more to the individual desires of the customers and integrate new market demands into their production and work processes in order to strengthen and secure their competitiveness. To do that, these companies need comprehensive security for their entire value chains, including production environment and machines. This is why the Cisco security solutions are an integral component of our Industrial Security Portfolios.”
